Piers Morgan has finally been put in his place by Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid and the world is a better place for it.
Morgan has carved himself something of a niche as ITV’s premier opinionated arsehole on the breakfast TV show, regularly shouting over guests with a variety of ill-informed opinions on subjects he evidently knows jack-shit about.
It’s been going on for some time now, with co-host Reid forced to sit through any number of diatribes on topics ranging from feminism to politics, with a glum and despairing look on her face that summed up the feelings of the entire nation.
Not anymore though. Keen to make a point, Reid finally stood up to Morgan during his latest moan – about the fact people discuss politics on social media.
Morgan hates it when people bang on and on about things and was keen to tell the world.
Seeing an opportunity to fire back on behalf of Morgan-haters everywhere, Reid turned the tables, effectively voicing her own feelings of despair at having to listen to other, unnamed individuals, bang on and on about stuff.
Morgan’s face in the wake of the comments was the stuff of TV legend and the kind of thing that could soon be featuring on t-shirts up and down the country.
The GMB host has been in the headline a lot of late for his exploits on the show. Most recently, he was seen to shout down former EDL-leader Tommy Robinson in an appearance that generated both positive and negative headlines for ITV.
Few, if any, viewers are likely to be complaining about this latest incident though.
