Andy Burnham joined Kate Garraway and Ranvir Singh to discuss his decision to block Boris Johnson’s plan to bring Greater Manchester into tier 3 coronavirus restrictions. However, as the Great Manchester Mayor explained what he hoped would be gained from the latest round of discussions with the Government, the two Good Morning Britain presenters spoke over Burnham and ITV viewers weren’t impressed.
One tweeted: “This interview with @AndyBurnhamGM on @GMB is disgraceful. The verbosity of the questions painting Andy as the bad guy by @ranvir01 and @kategarraway is not enough, they also keep talking over him when he’s trying to get a word in to answer their criticism. #GMB.”
Another shared: “Is this @ranvir01 trying to copy @piersmorgan… let Manchester mayor @AndyBurnhamGM reply before talking over him #gmb @GMB.”
“#GMB Could the presenters ask more concise questions and give the guests more time to talk?” Someone else asked.
A fourth pleaded: “#GMB I’ve got a bad head, please ladies stop shouting over each other and the interviewees.”
