He added: “If you were prime minister, would you be sat here or would you be avoiding cameras too?”

As Mr Scully started talking, Adil interrupted him.

Viewers weren’t happy on Twitter, and said he appeared to be shouting.

One person said: “I really can’t be bothered watching @GMB with Adil shouting like he Piers #GMB.”

Another wrote: “For heavens sake stop being so rude Adil Ray.

What did viewers say?

“You’re no Piers Morgan although you’re trying to be. You’re not giving Paul Scully a chance to reply. RUDE….”

One added: “Since when did Adil Ray turn into Piers Morgan? Shouting a lot!”

However, others loved Adil’s approach on GMB.

One tweeted: “@adilray needs to be given a permanent position on @GMB. He’s respectful and robust in his questioning. Refreshing.”

Another wrote: “I think @adilray should be given the permanent role @GMB. Sharp and inquisitive. Holds people to account.”
