Piers Morgan in Good Morning Britain blunder as he reads the wrong thing from the autocue

22

PIERS Morgan became so over-excited on Good Morning Britain that he made a blunder with the autocue.

The morning television presenter became so het up in a debate about veganism that he forgot how to do his job and read out what he was me meant to be doing rather than actually doing it.

Fortunately Susanna Reid was there to point out his blunder and make him feel sheepish.

“OK, time check. He’s your chance to win £300,000 cash,” he said as a delighted Susanna interrupted him to point out his error.

She said: “When it says time check you’re supposed to say the time.”

However instead of just accepting his mistake, he managed to somehow blame it on veganism and the show moved swiftly on.

It wasn’t the first fiery moment Piers had on today’s show as he also declared war on Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas.

The Good Morning Britain host has taken up defence of his co-host Charlotte Hawkins after Ballas criticised her “rise and fall” on Saturday night’s live show in her Top Gun inspired dance.

“She’s a piece of work Shirley isn’t she,” Piers said to Charlotte.

“She doesn’t like you. She likes the good looking guys but doesn’t like the pretty girls.”

He added: “She’s going to try and knife you and I’m going to stop her doing it. She’s got a thing about you.

“You looked fine to me so today we’re going to go to war with Shirley. She is a sour-faced creature who needs to be repelled. We’re coming after her.”

Susanna Reid, who previously competed on Strictly, diplomatically added: “We’re definitely all for Charlotte and fighting the good battle and I think we need to pick our battles.”

But Piers wasn’t done and made a throat cutting motion to Shirley and added: “We’re coming for you, you take on one of ours we hunt as a pack on our show.”

Charlotte and her partner Brendan Cole sexed up their performance as promised – and their saucy Tango made a big impression.

As they faced the panel, Brendan admitted messing up his footwork, saying: “I messed up. It was me. I put my hands up.”

But he got a roasting from Shirley over the “rise and falls” in the tango.

Brendan hit back, insisting there were none in the routine, and they ended up bickering.

Shirley snipped back: “You should play it back, my dear.”
