Piers Morgan was taken off the air after he had a go at the crew at Good Morning Britain.
It seems the production team got their own back on the controversial presenter after he suggested they were not true professionals for getting a date wrong on the show.
Yesterday, the show’s voiceover announced the date, but sadly had forgotten the New Year, naming it 2018.
And today was no different when he took aim at the teleprompter operator, saying he didn’t “believe” what they were writing.
He said: “It said earlier that it was the paper review and we didn’t have the papers so I don’t believe entirely what I am seeing on that screen.
“I have lost confidence in the gallery’s ability to deliver.
“They’re a bit like Theresa May at the moment – they promise in that screen what we have and then nothing happens.”
In protest, they took him off air and continued to show their upsets and complaint by focusing the camera on news anchor Charlotte Hawkins, who also chastised Piers for his comments along with Susanna Reid.
When he realised what he had done, he quickly said: “They have got the ultimate power.
“They can just literally yank the plug, and then the viewers would rebel and you’ll all have to lose your jobs.
When Charlotte celebrated the camera being focused on her, Piers said that would certainly not work, joking: “We tried that last week and the ratings tanked.”
In yesterday’s episode, Piers claimed the wrong date was caused by a mystery crew member who “fell asleep.”
He said: It wasn’t deliberate. Literally someone’s asleep – but they won’t be when we finish with them.
“11th of December 2018. Whoever that was had one job, one job; to press a button.
“We have to own our mistakes live on air so why should they be allowed to hide when they give the wrong date to the entire country?
“And it’s actually last year, it’s not even this year!
“We will have some stocks and get them in stocks by the end of the show.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
