Piers Morgan unleashes rant at 'pathetic and spineless' BBC bosses after Good Morning Britain lost out at Bafta TV Awards
PIERS Morgan unleashed a rant at "pathetic and spineless" BBC bosses after Good Morning Britain lost out at the Bafta TV Awards.
The host was left outraged that the breakfast show's News Coverage nomination wasn't shown on the main programme, blasting: "Shame on the BBC".
He said it was a "travesty" that the breakfast television hadn't won before slamming the Baftas as "boring".
Piers ranted: "You wouldn't have known GMB got nominated. We never got mentioned during the two-hour, incredibly boring, show.
"If you sat through that and are still alive good luck to you. How they get through it, those luvvies, I have no idea."
Cambridge Analytica Uncovered Production Team – ITN / Channel 4, won a Bafta for its News Coverage last night.
Good Morning Britain: On a Knife Edge? and its Thomas Markle Exclusive had been nominated.
"It's a travesty," Piers scoffed.
"We were up for half the awards. Good Morning Britain was the first ever breakfast show to be nominated for that coveted award.
