GMB viewers are used to seeing Piers Morgan lose his rag on the breakfast show but he was out-outraged by a guest this morning (June 3).
He and Susanna Reid were joined on Good Morning Britain by celebrity hairdresser Adee Phelan, who has spearheaded an initiative to give free products and styling to NHS workers.
But as he spoke about the incredible work NHS staff are doing and why we each have responsibility to do our bit, Adee grew enraged.
He railed against the government and Boris Johnson – and said the country deserves a leader like Winston Churchill, JF Kennedy or Martin Luther King.
‘It’s not right and it’s not fair.’
Celebrity hairdresser Adee Phelan passionately expresses his thoughts about the Prime Minister’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

During his impassioned rant, Adee swore three times – a no-no before the watershed.
While Susanna looked a little uncomfortable, Piers said: “Normally I’d issue a grovelling apology, but I’m prepared to take a hit from Ofcom and won’t apologise.”
The host went on to explain that viewers were loving Adee’s interview segment. And he wasn’t wrong – Twitter was full of tweets praising him.

Another agreed: “Adee, a man who talks sense and a man with so much passion. I agree, no apology needed.”

A third wrote: “Anyone who complains to Ofcom about Adee’s language should take a good hard look at themselves.”

A fourth praised him: “Well done Adee for supporting the NHS and agreeing that NHS workers are the celebrities!”

One joked: “If I get a haircut from Adee I must remember not to mention the government.”
