What did Dan Walker say about Piers Morgan?
Over the years, Dan and Piers have fired thinly-veiled shots at each other over their competing shows.
But, during a chat with The Sunday Times, Dan claimed there was a “decent bloke” in Piers.
The BBC reporter said: “Piers [Morgan] and I have had a friendly rivalry, but it has been good for BBC Breakfast and GMB.
I think there is a decent bloke fighting to get out
“He likes to throw a few insults around, but underneath all the froth I think there is a decent bloke fighting to get out.
“They are very different programmes and I’ve always said GMB do a good job.”
In addition, Dan, 44, went on to say how their interviewing styles were “very different.”
Dan and Piers’ rivalry
Viewing figures for Piers’ final appearance on GMB revealed that it beat BBC Breakfast with an audience share of 35.3%.
However, BBC Breakfast had 33.4%.
Sharing the news on social media, he wrote: “I had one goal when I joined GMB – beat BBC Breakfast in the ratings. On my last day, we did it.
“That was down to the hard work and dedication of the whole team.
“They don’t all agree with me, some don’t even like me, but we were a team… and we won.”
Meanwhile, Dan didn’t let Piers’ exit go unnoticed.
At the time, he responded to the news on Twitter.
Dan tweeted: “Sorry to hear the news about your departure from GMB @piersmorgan.
“If you’d like to come on the UK’s number 1 breakfast show to talk about it… we could make some space for you in the morning.”
