Good Morning Britain presenter Richard Bacon was criticised over his interview with Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno today.
Serge, 38, was chatting on GMB with Richard and Charlotte Hawkins to launch his new solo project The S.L.P. & Favourites single feat. Little Simz.
And it definitely seemed like Richard was a big fan.
While conducting a previous segment, Richard, 43, was seen waving at Serge.
Then as the chat started he exclaimed: “I know I’m not meant to give opinions on this show but I love you and I love your music.”
He then told the musician that his record will “sell itself”.
GMB viewers certainly noticed the fawning.
One slammed: “Bacon, top licking his a**e.”
While another added: “Bacon spewing out the BS!”
A third added: “Richard just said ‘we’re not meant to give opinions on the show’, I’ll leave it at that…”
Serge stressed that Kasabian hasn’t split, despite his solo material.
He said: “The last 17 years we’ve been busy playing.
“But the first year I got off, I thought I can’t sit on deck chair, I had to do something.
“I had a studio at home and just started making a record.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am.
