It didn’t take the Good Morning Britain presenter long to call out his BBC Breakfast rival.
“A lot of people voted and very interesting who won…Eamonn Holmes is the king of breakfast TV”, said Morgan live on air. “Then we get into the current breakfast TV presenters and that would be me. Dan somebody on the BBC trailing below me and he only just beat the guy who’s been retired… And the queen of breakfast television is our very own Susanna.”
Morgan followed up with a tweet offering Walker his “sympathies at this difficult time”.
Walker didn’t take the jab lying down, though. “Are you celebrating not being the best… again?” he asked Morgan, while several other Twitter users referred to an old tweet from the GMB host that said “Gold” was the only medal worth winning.
