Piers Morgan compares himself to Winston Churchill and says having Meghan Markle as an 'enemy' is good

PIERS Morgan has compared himself to Winston Churchill and says having Meghan Markle as an 'enemy' is good.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter sat down for an explosive tell-all chat with 60 Minutes Australia this weekend.

During the interview with Karl Stefanovic, Piers spoke about the importance of freedom of speech, and ended up comparing himself to one of Britain's most memorable Prime Ministers.

He said: "It’s the old Winston Churchill line, isn’t it?

"If you’ve got enemies it means good, because it means at some stage in your life you’ve stood up for something you believe in and freedom of speech to me is more important than, actually, the Meghan Markle debacle or anything else."

He added later in the interview: "You stand up for yourself, you stand up for what you believe in and you protect the basic freedoms of the country you’re in."

While Piers said it was "good" that Meghan was his enemy, he did blame her for his exit from Good Morning Britain back in March.

The Sun revealed that Piers blamed Meghan for his departure, claiming that she spoke to his bosses at ITV.

He said: "I didn't know this at the time but Meghan Markle had complained to my boss at ITV on the Monday night.

"It was demanded I apologise for disbelieving her otherwise I would have to vacate my chair.

"I thought there was hypocrisy, I thought there were downright lies coming out in the interview.

"I saw my job to hold them to account like I would to a government minister and for doing that, within 36 hours I had to leave the job."
