Piers Morgan has made some startling revelations in a new interview about disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
In an interview with GQ magazine, Morgan says he spent an hour interviewing Weinstein, who has been accused of sexually harassing, assualting or raping women over a number of years.
During the interview, which took place over the phone while Weinstein was receiving treatment for sex addiction in Arizona, Weinstein claimed he would make a comeback.
"He's fighting," Morgan told GQ. "He's a fascinating character. The apocalyptic symptom of the whole thing – the casting couch finally brought to judgement.

"I can't express the same level of shock as some people in Hollywood. Listen, this has been the system since Hollywood existed.
"It's been a moral cesspit since the Twenties, and the idea that Harvey Weinstein is the only villain? Do me a favour.
"Look at Mel Gibson: ultimately Harvey believes he will be forgiven."
More than 50 women have claimed they were harassed or assaulted by Weinstein, including Rose McGowan, Kate Beckinsale, Gwyneth Paltrow and Salma Hayek.
Weinstein has been fired from his movie production business The Weinstein Company, which has since filed for bankruptcy.
