Piers Morgan has hit back at Adil Ray following a swipe on Good Morning Britain, calling out the presenter for ‘destroying’ the ratings of the ITV programme.
On Wednesday’s edition of the show, Adil took the opportunity to make a jibe about Piers during a discussion about MP Stella Creasy, who received an email saying not to bring her baby into the chamber at Parliament.
Turning to his co-host Susanna Reid, he said: ‘You’ve presented with some babies over the years, haven’t you? Stormed out and had a bit of a tantrum?,’ prompting her to burst out laughing.
After learning about Adil’s wisecrack, Piers immediately clapped back, calling out the GMB presenter for ‘destroying’ ratings on the series since his departure.
‘Hmmm. Given how Mr Ray has helped destroy GMB’s ratings since I left, if I were him I’d probably avoid mocking the guy who took them to record heights…’ he tweeted.
Piers quit GMB in March this year after tens of thousands of people complained to Ofcom about remarks he made concerning Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
‘You’re breaking down stereotypes, haven’t you? We think of a movie about Black kids and it’s sort of gangs, and it’s gangsters and it’s drugs and all of that, but there’s none of that, really, it’s just a coming of age story, isn’t it?’ he said.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
