Bill Turnbull was forced to step in during a Good Morning Britain debate where a guest continuously bashed Meghan Markle.

The 64-year-old presenter interrupted royal biographer and journalist Tom Brewer during a discussion about Prince Harry and Meghan’s statement over the weekend, which pointed out that while they would not use the Sussex Royal brand, the Queen doesn’t have ‘jurisdiction’ over the word.

Tom quickly launched into a tirade against the Duchess and began: ‘That statement was really spiteful fury by Meghan. Meghan gets what Meghan wants.

‘What was spiteful was that she married into the royal family not so long ago, she knew exactly the terms. She wanted to bail out and she wants to bail out on her terms.’

He continued: ‘She was continuously putting out her versions of events which contradicted the actual facts and so she became a political person as much as a mother and a wife.

‘When she didn’t tell the truth about the circumstances around Archie… when she tried to deliberately confuse people about the time of the birth, it was unsavoury.’

But before Tom could continue, Bill intervened and stopped the guest’s train of thought.

‘Hold on Tom, let’s just stop for a second,’ Bill interrupted. ‘Let’s try and get back on what we’re supposed to be talking about which, is the misuse of the brand.

‘This is turning into an attack on Meghan.’

Viewers were quick to praise Bill for stepping in on social media, with one writing: ‘Calm. Respectful. And not afraid to step in when someone’s hateful comments are all targeted towards one person (Meghan).


‘More of Bill Turnbull on our screens please.’

Echoing a similar sentiment, another said: ‘I am so glad that Bill stepped in on #GMB and stopped Tom continuously verbally bashing Meghan.’

Bill reunited with Susanna Reid to present together on Good Morning Britain for the first time in six years.
