First Minister Nicola Sturgeon joined Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain to chat about the rise in coronavirus cases across the United Kingdom and what steps were being taken to prevent a second wave. However, before the interview got under way, Morgan begged the Scottish leader to cheer up and appear happier to be on the show.
Before Sturgeon appeared on the show, Morgan and Reid spoke to a hairdresser who had been told her job advert was discriminatory as she was looking to recruit a “happy” employee.
Carrying on the topic of conversation, Morgan suggested Sturgeon look a little more cheerful as she joined them.
“First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, joins us now,” Morgan began. “Good morning to you First Minister.”
Sturgeon flashed a quick smile to the camera before replying: “Good morning, good morning.”

“Well, you could sound a little happier,” Morgan hit back.
“We just had a whole debate about happy salon where people are not allowed to apply anymore for happiness.
“Before we get into serious stuff, can you radiate a little more happiness?”
Sturgeon furrowed her eyebrows and sighed as she replied: “I’ll do my best. I’ve just had a hair-rising, traffic-laden trip through to Edinburgh from Glasgow so I just made it here by the skin of my teeth.
