‘Turn off the lights and bolt the door!’ GMB viewers blast Kate Garraway as they turn off
Tuesday morning’s Good Morning Britain saw hosts Adil Ray and Kate Garraway take the reins in regular host Susanna Reid’s absence and following Piers Morgan’s permanent exit last month. The ITV presenting pair had plenty to get through, including interviews with Alex Salmond, Jonathan Ashworth and Nadhim Zahawi. However, many GMB viewers decided enough was enough after witnessing a number of interruptions throughout the interviews and made their opinions on the show clear.
While there were a number of talking points from Tuesday’s GMB, none more grabbed the attention than the interview with Mr Salmond.
The Scottish politician, who’s heading the new Alba Party to oppose Nicola Sturgeon’s Scottish National Party, became embroiled in several heated clashes with Garraway as he tried to discuss his party’s plans and quest for Scottish independence.
In one instance, Mr Salmond even had to ask the GMB presenter to stop interrupting as they “weren’t going to get anywhere”.
“It’s going to be very difficult to conduct the interview, can you let me answer the question?” Mr Salmond said as he tried to keep the chat on course.
“The amount of salary she takes you would at least expect her to be able to undertake the basics of her role.”
And a sixth didn’t mince their words: “Kate Garraway with a disgusting interview, not interested in what Alex has to say just throwing mud at him in the hope it will stick and constantly talking over him.”
A final viewer surmised: “@gmb the interview with @AlexSalmond with @kategarraway constantly interrupting him was one of the worst I’ve seen.
“It’s every show now it happens with a guest or cutting over a fellow presenter @benshephard. Somebody speak to Kate, it’s getting ridiculous now and it’s so rude.”
Garraway and Ray were filling in this week as Reid takes a break from presenting duties.
Ray will keep his place as the main host for the rest of April although ITV is still yet to announce a permanent replacement for Morgan.
Good Morning Britain continues weekdays at 6am on ITV.
