Ex Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 56, shared his thoughts on Chrissy Teigen, 35, quitting Twitter, after she claimed she was “deeply bruised” by the platform’s “negativity”. She later returned to the site, where she has 13.6 million followers.

The journalist said: “One of my major irritations is C-list celebs dramatically announcing they’re quitting Twitter, because a) no one cares b) they never mean it.

“Chrissy Teigen, the insufferably irritating spouse of singer John Legend, and one of the most abusive ‘stars’ on social media, did this three weeks ago, declaring with comical irony that the platform had become too painful to endure.

“Predictably, she returned today, explaining it had felt ‘terrible to silence yourself’.”

The father-of-four went on to say her departure from Twitter was “blissful” for him.

In a further rant at the model, he added in his Daily Mail column: “What’s ‘terrible’ is narcissists like you saying you’re quitting Twitter because it’s so mean, milking all the woke brigade’s sympathy for your supposed ‘bravery’, and then crawling back because you miss trolling people so much.”

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Chrissy for comment.

Piers’ feud with Chrissy began in 2016 when the pair clashed about racism in a thread of tweets.

He has since blasted her views on Donald Trump and also accused her of ruining John Legend’s version of Dean Martin’s Baby, It’s Cold Outside.

Elsewhere in his column, he said he had gained 200,000 new followers since leaving Good Morning Britain last month.

Piers left his role after sparking over 51,000 Ofcom complaints with comments he said about Meghan Markle.

The presenter said he didn’t believe a word she said as she discussed life in the Royal Family with Oprah Winfrey.

The Duchess of Sussex said she felt suicidal and also claimed a member of the family raised concerns about their son’s skin colour.

Prince Harry and Meghan, who married in 2018, have 23-month-old son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Piers said he had to “agree to disagree” with ITV about his departure from the show.

He added he stands by his comments and still doesn’t believe the former Suits star’s claims.

Following his exit, he jokingly asked fans to “help a jobless man out” as he asked them to buy his book Wake Up.

Earlier this month, Richard Madeley shared his thoughts on potentially replacing Piers on the show.

He told The Metro: “If the phone went and they said, ‘Would you come in and talk?’ of course I would talk to them.”

But, the presenter said he prefers “sitting in for people” rather than having a permanent slot, adding: “I have all the fun and very little of the responsibility or flak.”

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
