Piers Morgan, 55, has questioned BBC Breakfast boss Richard Frediani after the show’s editor praised the team for “dominating morning TV”. The Good Morning Britain presenter called out Richard for his post about the programme’s ratings, as he only joined the show “a year ago”.
Piers sarcastically asked the BBC boss to reveal “the comparative year-on-year numbers” for both BBC Breakfast and GMB “so everyone can see” his impact on ratings.
