The Chase star Jenny Ryan refused to appear on GMB while Piers Morgan was host

Chaser Jenny Ryan refused to appear on Good Morning Britain while Piers Morgan was a host.

The Chase star, who is nicknamed The Vixen, revealed she spurned offers to appear while controversial breakfast show presenter Piers was still working for the programme.

“I’d run out of excuses as to why I could only appear on GMB during the holidays, so this is a blessed relief,” Jenny tweeted to her 91.7k followers.

The top quizzer is best known for taking down contestants on the hit ITV quiz show.

But the 38-year-old flame-haired brain box admitted she did everything she could to avoid being interviewed by Piers on GMB.

Jenny’s claim comes in the wake of Piers’ sensational exit from GMB on Tuesday.

Piers left the show this week following his widely-criticised comments doubting Meghan Markle's suicidal thoughts.

Meghan was speaking in an exclusive interview on CBS with American chat queen Oprah Winfrey.

And after GMB received more than 41,000 Ofcom complaints, Piers upped sticks and moved on.

Piers later clarified his comments by stressing: “Mental illness and suicide, these are clearly very serious things and should be taken extremely seriously.

“If somebody is feeling that way they should get the treatment and help that they need every time.

“And if they belong to an institution like the Royal family, and they go and seek that help, they should absolutely be given it.

“It’s not for me to question whether she felt suicidal, I wasn’t in her mind and that’s for her to say.”

However he has since stood by his original statement, which caused the backlash against him.

He said on Twitter: "On Monday, I said I didn't believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview.

"I've had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don't. If you did, OK.

"Freedom of speech is a hill I'm happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate.

"I'm off to spend more time with my opinions."
