Choosing the hashtag #TrumpMorgan to promote his ITV interview with US president Donald Trump, Piers Morgan was clearly hoping it would go down as a modern-day Frost/Nixon, yet for the majority of viewers it wasn’t quite the in-depth, hard-hitting face-off that implied.

In fact, a whopping 88% of those polled on Sunday night by RadioTimes.com said Morgan was not tough enough on Trump.

Many of those commenting on Twitter found the "love-in" between Morgan and his "great friend" an uncomfortable watch that failed to press Trump on any of the important issues...

Some found it really uncomfortable...

On Facebook it was a similar story.

"The most sycophantic interview I have ever lived through," wrote Collins Chidimuro, "and I grew up on a diet of Robert Mugabe interviews with the Zimbabwe state broadcaster. Shameful."

"They just seemed to be kissing each other’s behinds," noted John Wyres-Smith.

In the interests of balance we worked hard to dig out some positive reactions, although they were wildly outnumbered by the negative.
