Well I actually missed it, but have just been shown the vid of Alex Beresford giving his take on Meghan & Harry, I must say I don’t think it’s done Piers any favours upping and walking off like that

Hilarious. Have a look at this. He’s just a big man baby. twitter.com/janeygodley/status/1369266312682344450?s=21

Ps I never watch the programme. I saw the video shared on Twitter. The other guy was very very good. Kudos to him.

Yes I saw it on Twitter.

Morgan has lost any credibility he may have had.

Beresford’s reply to Morgan’s rant was so cool and intelligent.

Piers has history with Meghan. She was a big pal until she met Harry, then dropped him.....he doesn’t appear to have gotten over it!

I saw it on Twitter as well - loved it. Just sums PM up - it’s almost as if the term ‘snowflake’ was coined with him in mind. Seriously though it was very unprofessional and only a little while ago he criticised Therese Coffey for cutting short his interview with her.

Which makes him even more puerile

I have seen the clip on Twitter, Alex Beresford came over as a gentleman, Mr.Morgan like a teenager who has had his PlayStation taken away!

Not sure PM & MM were big pals he has constantly boasted they spent an evening in a pub together, then he didn’t hear from her again.

I watched it on some news site and I was a bit gobsmacked at 'Alex' isn't he a weather man? (I never watch morning tv as I am too busy) but Piers looked like he was going to cry. What happened after he stormed off? how did the other react?

Just pity he won't stay off!

He tells it that they had an online friendship, met up for a drink when she came to London, she subsequently met PH and never contacted him again.

Piers M is a tit he constantly talks over whatever female presenter is with him
A weatherman can be every bit as intelligent as a bombastic news presenter janejudge and he certainly handled it in a very calm, intellectual manner

Polarbear2 Tue 09-Mar-21 17:10:09

There’s rumour it was staged to save ITV having to apologise for PM - or even discipline him. Whatever, it was fun seeing him run off 😂. Am an Alex fan now 😁

Never watch it. Probably because of Piers.

I don't like the man and don't watch ITV in the morning, or much of it at anytime really.

Absolutely hilarious, thank you for the link 😂😂😂

I am not sure it was real. Although I really like Alex Beresford, he has been very articulate on a number of subjects.

suziewoozie Tue 09-Mar-21 17:32:12

Well if it was staged, it’s a high risk strategy as it made him look what BB said he was

I honestly didn't mean it in a snobby way, I have never watched the program and it just seemed odd the weatherman was sitting at the desk telling the main presenter off !

Why?

There have been to date 41000 complaints over Morgan’s rant about the couple.

Galaxy Tue 09-Mar-21 17:48:35

He is behaving like a really creepy stalker.

suziewoozie Tue 09-Mar-21 17:49:32

Or a man scorned 😀

I don't watch the ITV morning programme because I don't like the constant advertisements and I don't like Piers Morgan. However, I have seen the clips of what happened between him and Alex Beresford and I have read previous reports of his other obnoxious on-screen rants.

Morgan can certainly dish out all sorts of nastiness but he can't deal with some straight, non-offensive criticism of his boorish and inflammatory behaviour. Beresford's comments were in no way as outrageous or offensive as Morgan's often are. Good for him for speaking up I say. Morgan obviously thinks he's too important to have anybody contradict him.

It was still quite disturbing, though, to see that, although many people applauded Beresford's courage, a lot of people were delighted with Morgan's take on the Harry and Meghan interview. I believe it shows that there remains a substantial core of people who seem to take the view that non-white people should be grateful to be here and should just shut up if they don't want to be accused of having "chips on their shoulders", of "playing the race card", or of just being generally self-serving. I find it quite disheartening that this outrageously rude and offensive man can garner any support at all.
