Piers Morgan has said he may "storm back into GMB" after Ofcom cleared him following comments he made about Meghan Markle.

The 56-year-old was cleared in the TV watchdog's report after he lashed out at Meghan and husband Prince Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

The former TV host found himself in hot water over his public dismissal of the Duchess of Sussex's claims back in March, which sparked a whopping 58,000 complaints to the broadcasting watchdog.

He stormed off of the set of Good Morning Britain shortly after making his comments and quit the show.

He was investigated over a possible breach of the broadcasting code, but the ruling, made public on Wednesday, stated that he was entitled to give his opinion on air.

Now cleared of wrongdoing, the TV presenter has threatened to make a comeback to the show on his Twitter account.

"Maybe I should just storm back in," he wrote, sharing an article about ITV ruling out his return to the show.

In another tweet, he wrote: "I’m delighted Ofcom has endorsed my right to disbelieve the Duke & Duchess of Sussex’s incendiary claims to Oprah Winfrey, many of which have proven to be untrue.

"This is a resounding victory for free speech and a resounding defeat for Princess Pinocchios [sic]. Do I get my job back?"

Fans responded positively, begging him to make a come back, and telling Piers he has been missed on the show.

However, co-host Susanna confirmed he won't be making a return, telling viewers on Thursday morning: "He tweeted 'does this mean I get my job back,' but ITV effectively said he's not coming back.

"He's been inundated with offers, particularly after yesterday, so I'm sure he's got plenty of things to consider.

"We don't have Piers on the programme this morning, not because of a restriction on freedom of speech."

Meghan, 40, and Prince Harry, 36, personally lodged a complaint against Piers to ITV and Ofcom about his outburst back in March.

But, the media watchdog said Piers was within his rights to share his views on TV and that restricting his views would be an "unwarranted and chilling restriction on freedom of expression".
