Moment GMB’s Ranvir Singh collars Boris Johnson after BBC interview

‘Grab him!’: Moment GMB’s Ranvir Singh collars Boris Johnson after BBC interview as furious Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan in studio demand to know why he snubbed them for rival

  • Prime Minister Boris Johnson appeared on BBC Breakfast earlier this morning 
  • He had previously promised to appear on ITV show Good Morning Britain 
  • On a live link from London presenter Susanna Reid shouted at Mr Johnson
  • Said he could come on the show ‘right now’ and then said he could tomorrow  

Good Morning Britain presenter Ranvir Singh collared Prime Minister Boris Johnson this morning after being told to ‘grab’ the Tory leader by fellow show hosts.

The ITV team were infuriated after learning that Mr Johnson had snubbed their programme, only to appear on two BBC shows.

Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan blasted Mr Johnson for not appearing on the ITV show despite having previously promised to.

Mr Johnson had just been interviewed by BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker when he walked into the shot of the GMB camera crew, which were linked live to the London studio.

Piers tried to get Mr Johnson’s attention and produced a megaphone and started shouting.

He said: ‘Prime Minister is there any way we can leave on October 31 from the European Union without breaking the law? And if you do try and break the law, should you resign over that?’

Mr Johnson was then seen walking away from his BBC interview, with the team at ITV saying: ‘He’s coming. There he is, grab him!’

Ranvir questioned the Prime Minister as to when he would be appearing on the ITV show 

Ranvir Singh, who is currently reporting live from the Tory party conference in Manchester, called Mr Johnson over and asked him why he hadn’t appeared on their show and when they would be. 

Mr Johnson, responded to Ranvir by telling her had to go as he was also going to be on the Today programme, another BBC show.

This seemed to enrage Susanna who then began shouting at the Prime Minister, questioning when he would appear on the show, which he had promised to do just a few months ago.

As Ranvir tried to confirm a dater that Mr Johnson could appear on the show Susanna shouted: ‘You can do it right now Prime Minister.’

Mr Johnson apologised to Susanna and Piers and said: ‘Good morning, I’m so sorry to be missing you both today but I’ve got to go and do the Today programme’.

Boris Johnson lays out his ‘game changing’ Brexit plan for avoiding hard Irish border during BBC interview 

Boris Johnson urged Brussels to ‘compromise’ today as he laid out his ‘game changing’ Brexit plan to avoid a hard Irish border – but immediately saw it dismissed by the EU.

The Prime Minister said he is fighting hard to get an agreement with Brussels and the sides were facing the ‘critical moment of choice’, as details of the blueprint started emerging.

But he insisted that the UK must leave with No Deal on October 31 if a settlement proves impossible – warning the EU would be making a ‘mistake’ if it tries to keep the country ‘bound’.

‘This is the moment when the rubber hits the road,’ Mr Johnson told BBC Breakfast. ‘We do have a solution.’  

The new plan appears to involve Northern Ireland following some EU regulations – but staying in the UK’s customs jurisdiction. 

To avoid infrastructure at the border checks would take place some distance away, and technology would be deployed to minimise friction.

Mr Johnson said this morning that the UK government had ‘moved a long way’, and was accepting that the ‘people in Northern Ireland may by British but the cattle are Irish’.

He is then implored by Ranvir to ‘promise the viewers’ to come on the show as ‘some of them are you voters’.

He said: ‘I’m going to come on as soon as I possibly can’.

Asked if it would be in the next week or two, he said ‘you bet’ and told Ranvir that it had been nice to see her.

Susanna once again starts shouting and says: ‘tomorrow Boris, tomorrow’.

Piers then highlights that the Prime Minister had been going straight from one BBC interview to another BBC interview, but that he had promised ‘once again’ that he would come on the ITV show.

Ranvir highlighted that it wasn’t the commitment to the presenters that was important, but the commitment to the viewers at home.

‘He has now made a verb contract with our viewers and if he breaks that contract, well that is a stain on someones character.

Piers said that he ‘wouldn’t hold his breath’ and that the Prime Minister didn’t want to be asked ‘tough questions’. 

‘If you can’t deliver Prime Minister then stop promising you’re going to do something if you can’t deliver. 

‘Because it makes me think then about your bigger promises, you’re full of it.’

The team were informed at the beginning of the breakfast show that the Prime Minister would be appearing on BBC Breakfast, by one of the their producers.

Piers was irked at this and said that if it was true, then he knew ‘a lot’ about the Prime Minister and was start to ‘reveal all’ if he were to appear on the show.

He then went on to email Mr Johnson’s press team to ask them if this was happening, and it was said on air that the team at Good Morning Britain had also been putting calls in to Mr Johnson’s team.
