Piers Morgan Makes his Return to Breakfast Television

Published

on

The controversial journalist appeared on BBC’s Sunday Morning Show.

Piers Morgan has been a stranger to morning television since storming off the set of Good Morning Britain last year, amid backlash from comments made about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Last March Ofcom received over 54,000 complaints after Morgan slammed the pair during an argument with Alex Beresford, ‘They don’t how to spell compassion. They trashed his dad, they trashed his brother, they trashed his sister-in-law…They’ve trashed everything the Queen has worked so hard to maintain…’

The 56-year-old then famously walked off the breakfast show and tv regulators Ofcom launched an investigation into the episode of Good Morning Britain under harm and offence regulations.

Therefore viewers were surprised to see the 56-year-old appearing on BBC’s breakfast show, hosted by Sophie Raworth, talking about none other than the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

It seems Morgan’s appearance on the show may have affected their viewing figures as many people took to Twitter to vent their frustration, one woman remarked, ‘Why the hell is Piers Morgan on TV on a Sunday morning and why was he given carte blanche to air is obsessive, creepy anger with Prince Harry and Meghan?? BBC get your act together and keep him off your programmes! Had to turn over to Phillips…’

Another narked viewer added, ‘Turns on BBC Sunday Morning, sees Piers Morgan mincing about Harry and Megan again… turns off Sunday Morning.’

A third wrote, ‘Thought I’d have a look at @sophieraworth show as I refused to watch Marr. Five minutes in and @piersmorgan is on the screen, one minute later he’s having a go at Prince Harry. Not exactly the new, dynamic Sunday morning I’d hoped for. Same old, same old. Reach for remote. Off.’

Morgan once again weighed in with his opinion on the couple during his appearance on the show last weekend, with one viewer saying his ‘obsession’ with the couple is ‘frightening,’

When discussing whether Prince Harry and Meghan should be afforded police protection from the British police when visiting Britain, Morgan said, ‘Why should the British police protect him? He’s now a private citizen, he doesn’t do any Royal duties, they’re making hundreds of millions of dollars fleecing their Royal titles, which they still have while simultaneously trashing the Royal family and the institution of the monarchy that his grandmother is the head of, and now they want to have their cake as always.’

He stated, ‘I think there’s a brazen double standard.’

Doctor Who: David Tennant and Catherine Tate to return

Published

on

David Tennant and Catherine Tate are to return to Doctor Who, the BBC has confirmed.

The pair are currently filming for the sci-fi show’s 60th anniversary, which it will celebrate in 2023.

Tennant played the 10th Doctor on the time travel drama from 2005-2010, while Tate played companion Donna Noble. Tennant and Tate’s involvement means they will be reunited with returning Doctor Who head writer Russell T Davies.

Davies, who was in charge of Doctor Who when it was successfully revived in 2005, left at the same time as Tennant. Their last episode together was broadcast in 2010.

Tennant has briefly returned before, joining then-Doctor Matt Smith for the programme’s 50th anniversary in 2013.

Davies has teased fans, saying: “Maybe this is a missing story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback. The only thing I can confirm is that it’s going to be spectacular, as two of our greatest stars reunite for the battle of a lifetime.”

Tennant and Tate’s 2008 series of Doctor Who is the most successful that the show has had since its revival in 2005, with an average audience of more than eight million viewers per episode.

Are you excited to see their return?

Eurovision 2022: How Sam Ryder Turned Things Around For the UK

Published

on

Sam Ryder has said the “stigma” about the UK’s Eurovision performance has finally been “destroyed” after he brought home our best result in 24 years.

The singer led the UK to second place during Saturday night’s Song Contest in Turin, Italy, with his song ‘Space Man’.

It was the the highest the UK has placed since 1998, when Imaani’s ‘Where Are You?’ finished just behind Israel’s Dana International, who won with her song Diva.

In the years since, Britain has suffered a number of embarrassment moments, receiving the dreaded “nul points” in 2003 with Jemini’s ‘Cry Baby’ and in 2021 with James Newman’s ‘Embers’.

However, the public overwhelmingly backed Ukraine, who won the competition with 631 points on the leaderboard, with the UK securing 466 points.

Winning the 2022 Eurovision trophy is a hugely emotional and symbolic victory for Ukraine in the contest’s 66th year as the conflict continues.

The nation’s president Volodymyr Zelensky responded: “Our courage impresses the world, our music conquers Europe.

“We will do our best to one day host the participants and guests of Eurovision in Ukrainian Mariupol. Free, peaceful, rebuilt.”

The results had many fans in sheer disbelief on social media, while prime minister Boris Johnson said he was “incredibly proud” of Sam and how “he brilliantly represented the UK”.

You’re the winner in our eyes Sam, well done!

Eurovision 2022: Sam Ryder Odds Rocket Ahead of Eurovision Final

Published

on

The UK’s Eurovision 2022 entry Sam Ryder has closed in on Ukraine in the winner odds after his performance in the jury semi final.

The TikTok star blew away the audience who flocked to the Pala Olimpico arena in Turin, Italy to see the second jury semi final. The reaction to Sam’s act and his amazing performance have now got plenty of fans and experts predicting he is going to push Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra all the way on Saturday night.

Last week , Sam was sitting in fourth place in the Eurovision odds with his song ‘Space Man’ but, after his second rehearsal in Turin received a rave reaction from press over in Italy and fans and he was given a huge advantage by being drawn in the second half of the Eurovision final, he soared up to second.

The Ukraine currently have a 59% chance of winning and the UK 11%. Sweden and Italy then currently stand as third and fourth favourites at 9% and 6% respectively. Our odds have improved even more so since too as the UK have been announced to perform fourth from last, number 22, which has been the winning performance slot two years in a row.

On May 3 2022 it became exactly 25 years to the day since the UK’s last triumph in Eurovision, when Katrina & the Waves topped the leaderboard in Ireland with their anthemic track Love Shine A Light. Since then, there’s been little to shout about. The UK has always been on the wrong side of the leaderboard, with us consistently finishing at or near the bottom. And last year proved a particularly bitter pill to swallow when James Newman came last on zero points, having received nothing from either the juries or televote.
