There was almost trouble on Good Morning Britain today as a guest on the breakfast show slipped a bit of a swear into his interview.
Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan was appearing on the ITV morning show to discuss Brexit, but he was also asked by hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid about his opinions on the historic meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.
Hannan admitted that he is “no great fan of Donald Trump – I think he has character problems”, but said that he had to give him some credit for the summit.
He added that a lot of people will be reluctant to offer any praise for Trump’s actions, saying: “It’s a very, very common thing in politics where even when you do something that people agree with they say, ‘We didn’t want this from you, you b******d’. I’m afraid that’s human nature.”
A concerned looking Reid quickly said sorry to viewers for the outburst, declaring: “Language we’re not actually allowed to broadcast at this time in the morning. Apologies for the use of that word while children are eating their cornflakes and they will ask their parents what that means.”
Viewers were quick to jump on Hannan’s words.
It’s certainly not the first time an ITV presenter has had to apologise for language live on-air recently, with Janet Street-Porter telling her fellow Loose Women panellists a couple of weeks ago that she “loves a p**s-up”.
