Denise Welch accuses Piers Morgan's GMB co-stars of being 'fake' in 'rage tweet'

DENISE Welch accused Piers Morgan's Good Morning Britain co-stars of being "fake" in a "rage tweet".

The former Good Morning Britain presenter sensationally quit the show this week after refusing to apologise for his comments about Meghan Markle.

Now Denise – who has clashed with Piers on social media before – has accused his co-stars of being "fake" for supporting him.

In a now-deleted tweet, Denise said: "To those colleagues defending Piers and saying what a great guy he is just remember… I have receipts!!"

Denise said of the tweet when asked by the Daily Star: "I rage tweeted then thought better of it. Commenting no further."

Piers shocked fans by dramatically leaving Good Morning Britain on Tuesday night after senior execs told him to say sorry on air.

The request came after his heated clash with the show’s weatherman Alex Beresford, who criticised his reaction to Meghan's claims she contemplated suicide and was racially abused by the royal family.

Alex released a statement on social media on Thursday insisting there was no ill-feeling between the pair, saying: "I didn't want him to quit – but I did want him to listen."

Piers' co-star Susanna has paid tribute to the "outspoken, opinionated, and disruptive" presenter after he quit – and was also left in tears during the dramatic talks.

Meanwhile, Kate Garraway admitted the show will be "different" without Piers – but insisted their "friendship will go on" in a sweet tribute.

Last year, Denise said she was "keeping her head down" after Piers called her a "Covidiot" because of her views on the coronavirus pandemic.

Following the row, the Loose Women star told OK!: "I’ve had enough of it. I’ve said my piece and I tried to do what I could for the mental health of the people that follow me.

"Now I’m just keeping my head down and looking after myself and my family."
