The feud between Piers Morgan, 55, and Dan Walker, 43, has been going on for years, and some may be even tired of their back and fourth bickering on Twitter. It doesn’t take much for either to take aim at the other, a battle usually over viewing figures and breakfast show ratings, but this time the Good Morning Britain presenter offered to help his rival BBC Breakfast host “grow a pair” when it comes to the nitty gritty of grilling government ministers on-air.

Very happy to help him grow a pair

What’s become apparent during the coronavirus pandemic is that there is no right or wrong way to interview a minister and manage to please everyone.

Both Dan and Piers have both received their fair share of negative feedback for either shouting over guests or allowing them to avoid the question altogether, constantly being compared for their interview styles.

But with the criticism also comes some positives, with many believing they both do their jobs splendidly just in different ways.

Piers is definitely no stranger to backlash on his interview techniques, but his latest swipe at Dan came after a particularly pleasant comment caught his attention.

A fan replied to a post by the official GMB Twitter account, who shared a clip of Piers going head to head with questions Nadhim Zahawi after Health Secretary Matt Hancock was found to have “acted unlawfully” in signing PPE contracts.

Calling it “completely unacceptable” that NHS staff were forced to wear bin bags due to the lack of PPE, the outspoken presenter wanted to know if the government would apologised for their mistakes.

The feisty clip prompted the viewer to reply: “Spot on @piersmorgan.

“Perhaps you could tutor that jellyfish @mrdanwalker of @BBCBreakfast on how to interview hold government ministers to account?”

It wasn’t long before the ITV star responded with a short and simple statement.

“Very happy to help him grow a pair,” he penned.

Dan, if ever, is yet to respond.

But of course, Piers was hit with comments about his style as fans of the BBC star, who in the past has been branded a “mild-mannered” presenter due to his friendliness, came to is defence.

“Fortunately Dan is a proper journalist not a wannabe celebrity,” one snapped.

Another agreed: “Difference is he lets them speak rather than you and your echo shouting over them for your own feeling of self-satisfaction.”

With opinions about who’s the better presenter bouncing back and fourth, it’s safe to say it’s probably a tie.

Yesterday was Piers’ first day back on GMB after having a ten day break, but after announcing his return on social media he left some of his followers worried for his well-being when he posted a bedraggled photo of himself looking a little worse for wear.

Taking to Twitter to give fans the good news, Piers wrote: “It’s been a long ten days but it didn’t break me,” he joked.

“See you back on ⁦@GMB⁩ tomorrow morning. #LockdownHalfTerm.”

He accompanied the caption with a weary-looking snap of himself with stubble and wearing dark sunglasses.

While the majority were pleased to see that the outspoken star would be back in his rightful place on the panel this morning, there were others who wanted to check in on him after being stunned by his new look, and asked him if he was doing OK.

Good Morning Britain and BBC Breakfast both air weekdays from 6am on ITV and BBC One.
