Dan Walker makes sly dig at Piers Morgan as the two go head-to-head in latest spat | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Probably fed up with constantly being compared to his rival, he explained that you can conduct a good interview with different tactics to that of outspoken Piers.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a lot of confusion about what is expected of the public, and why certain “mistakes” were made at the start of the outbreak.
As people want the government to give a clear outline of what is going on, direct answers are everything.
In view of his 649.8K followers, Dan thanked BBC viewers before insinuating not all presenters need to adopt Piers’ style of interviewing in order to get those answers.
“Thanks for all your kind comments about our #BBCBreakfast interviews this morning,” he wrote.
“It is possible to challenge politicians & and ask difficult questions without… Shouting interrupting, telling everyone you’re brilliant at holding them to account. Thanks for watching.”
The sly comment received a mixed reaction from fans and while many applauded the BBC star for his hard work, others suggested he should be “more like Piers” in order to get the answers the public want.
