Dan Walker, 43, pointed out BBC Breakfast didn’t air yesterday as ITV rival, Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan, 55, took to Twitter to make a dig about the two early shows. The former programme wasn’t shown as a US Election 2020 special was broadcast instead.
It comes after Piers announced the staggering amount of viewers they had watching GMB yesterday.
In view of his 7.6 million followers, he wrote: “BREAKING: So, @GMB averaged 1.16m viewers & 27 per cent audience share pts yesterday.
“That’s UP by 20 per cent & 58 per cent on the 2016 US election. But.. @BBCBreakfast was DOWN by 852k viewers (34 per cent) & 8 share pts (20 per cent) on 2016. Thanks for watching!”
It wasn’t long before Dan waded in: “Well done… but we weren’t actually on yesterday.”
