Motormouth Doncaster TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson should replace Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, viewers have said.

The controversial 55-year-old left the show yesterday after a row over his comments about Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, which saw him storm off set yesterday after clashing with weather presenter Alex Beresford about the explosive chat.

And viewers think Burghwallis-born Clarkson could be a suitable replacement for Morgan.

Many reckon Morgan's arch-nemesis could be a good call and Clarkson, who reportedly once punched Morgan, even added fuel to the fire, tweeting: "People of America. You sent Piers Morgan back to the UK. Now look what we've sent back to you. Ha. We win."

Jeremy Clarkson should replace Piers Morgan, according to viewers.

Some people reckon he'd be the perfect fit for the daily morning show, with one person saying on Twitter: "Nothing would please me more than to have Jeremy Clarkson take Piers Morgan's old position on Good Morning Britain."

Another said: "Jeremy Clarkson needs to be the Piers replacement on Good Morning [Britain] please... Would be very decent."

A third wrote: "If I'm honest I always thought Jeremy Clarkson would be perfect for @GMB."

Some who disliked Morgan said they felt Clarkson would be just as bad, arguing that 'he's literally Piers 2.0', while others made different suggestions about who should be the new presenter.

Last night, ITV revealed Morgan had quit, stating: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.

"ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."
