Ranvir Singh and Ed intiailly appeared to ignore Richard as they spoke about the drama that happened following Movie Night on the hit ITV2 dating show.

They also spoke about how reality shows hold up a mirror to society and promote “worrying trends”.

All the while, Richard was sitting at the other end of the desk, being ignored.

Eventually, Ranvir turned to Richard and asked: “What is going on on Love Island, from your point of view, what is being exposed?”

“Well I’ll bring you up to speed if you’ll let me and I’ll bring you up with the nitty gritty of it,” Richard sniped.

Ed wanted to join in on the discussion though and interrupted Richard. “Movie Night was not a good night for the boys was it?” he asked.

“Well you’ve practically done all the item, Edward,” Richard snapped. Looking shocked, Ed said: “It wasn’t me, I want to see the clips.”

“Enough about the tension here on the Good Morning Britain desk,” Richard continued. “Can we crack on with it? I’ll speak if you let me. Thanks.”
