Piers Morgan trolls Dan Walker over 'taking Louise Minchin's place' on BBC

Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has trolled Dan Walker online to tell him he’s taking Louise Minchin’s place on BBC Breakfast.

Louise shocked viewers of the morning show by telling them she was leaving saying: “I have decided it is time I stopped setting my alarm for 3.40 in the morning.”

She added: “This year, it will be 20 years since I first presented this programme.

“Since then I felt part of a huge BBC Breakfast family which includes everyone who works here, everyone on the team and every one of you who watches the programme. I’ve loved being part of it.”

Following the shock news her presenting partner Dan Walker spoke of his upset at the announcement online.

He wrote on Twitter: “This feels like a break-up . What am I going to do without Louise?”

“Thank you for all the lovely messages after an emotional morning on #BBCBreakfast – I’m sure Louise will get to read them all later.

“My life will be poorer without her on the sofa. She’s the best.”

Dan’s Twitter upset proved the perfect opportunity for Piers Morgan to take the mickey out of him.

Pretending he was going to step in as Louise’s replacement, Piers wrote: “Stop blubbing Dan – I start Monday.

“BBC wanted the guy who beat you in the ratings, and the first same-sex male breakfast presenting team to appease the wokies.”

Piers has aways mocked Dan, his competitor, from his ITV desk and after his final GMB show beat BBC Breakfast in the ratings he really rubbed things in.

Dan didn’t let Piers be smug for too long as he replied, referring to Piers’s GMB walk-off in March.

“No thanks… wouldn’t want you storming off if Carol asked you something awkward. #TearsForPiers.”

Piers took it all in good fun and later sent Louise a message saying: “Great innings Louise – you’re a class act. Enjoy those lie-ins!”
