Alok Sharma appeared on BBC Breakfast to be quizzed by Louise Minchin over the local lockdown in Leicester as well as the government's latest testing numbers. Moments later on GMB, Piers and Susanna were left picking through Mr Sharma's answers on the 64th day that a government minister has refused to appear on the ITV show. While Mr Sharma may not have appeared on GMB, Piers was quick to slam both his responses and the line of questioning.
Before a clip from Mr Sharma's interview was played, Piers didn't exactly give him the warmest of introductions.
The GMB host described Mr Sharma as "one of the worst-performing government ministers" to appear on GMB, adding "the bar was pretty low."
Piers then revealed that the MP had gone onto the BBC show and admitted "he was wrong" about information he'd previously given the programme regarding testing figures.
