The ITV news show was at the forefront of the coronavirus coverage when the country went into a nationwide lockdown. Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid interviewed those in power who were making decisions about how they would tackle the virus but it seems viewers weren’t impressed as Good Morning Britain received over 9,000 complaints.
A Freedom of Information (FOI) request revealed between 16 March 2020 and 15 August 2020, 22,000 complaints were made to Ofcom over television coverage.
Research by Buzz Bingo provided to Express.co.uk showed Good Morning Britain received the most complaints during lockdown, with Ofcom receiving 9,019 complaints between March and August.
This means GMB accounted for 40 percent of all television show complaints during lockdown.
Their show from 15 April was the most complained about episode during this period.
