Piers Morgan took aim at Dan Walker in his latest column today. The outspoken journalist responded to comments the BBC Breakfast host previously said about him last month.

Underneath all Dan Walker’s faux saintly froth, there’s a nasty piece of work

Piers Morgan

The 56-year-old shared his thoughts on what he thinks his BBC rival is really like behind the “faux saintly froth”.

As he spoke out about the Football Focus presenter, 44, he also made sure to reference Good Morning Britain’s ratings during his final instalment.

Piers and Dan have regularly exchanged cheeky jibes at each other, both on Twitter and in interviews since they went up against each other on TV.

And today the former had his say on being branded “a decent bloke fighting to get out” by the latter.

Piers stated: “My supremely virtuous former breakfast TV show rival Dan ‘Halo’ Walker said about me: ‘Underneath all the froth, I think there is a decent bloke fighting to get out.’

“Ironically, I’ve always thought that underneath all Dan’s faux saintly froth, there’s a nasty piece of work fighting to get out.”

The father-of-four then went on to discuss GMB finally triumphing over Breakfast.

He continued: “The one thing guaranteed to have him stamping on kittens is the knowledge that GMB finally overtook BBC Breakfast in the ratings, on his watch, on my last day.”

Piers added: “‘For somebody who has gone on record saying they detest silver medals, five years in second place must hurt quite a bit,’ cocky Dan sneered in February.

“It did, yes. But fortunately, Mr Walker, your poodle­like simpering with Government Ministers single-handedly gifted me the gold medal and cured the pain!”

His final GMB instalment saw 1.3 million viewers tune in, beating Breakfast’s 1.25 million.

It came before he stepped down from his GMB role, after sparking complaints to Ofcom for his remarks about Meghan Markle.

He later said he refused to apologise for saying he disbelieved the Duchess Of Sussex and left his job.

Just a matter of weeks ago Dan said it was just a “friendly rivalry” between him and Piers, while chatting to The Sunday Times.

He stated that it had “been good for BBC Breakfast and GMB”.

The dad-of-three then said: “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.

“Our styles are very different, but the idea that you’ve not done a good job unless you demand resignations and rant at the interviewee is laughable.”

Piers previously raised eyebrows among athletes at the Rio Olympics by tweeting that he “just can’t get excited by silver and bronze medals”.

He added: “You win or you lose.”

Tomorrow Piers is set to fist televised interview since his GMB exit, to Tucker Carlson on his Fox Nation show.
