Richard Madeley Gives Piers Morgan A Run For His Money With ‘Good Morning Britain’ Interview

His interview style divided viewers.

Richard Madeley has wasted no time in getting comfortable on the ‘Good Morning Britain’ sofa and on Thursday (24 August), he did his best Piers Morgan impression during an interview with one guest.

The former ‘This Morning’ host was interviewing Duncan Dollimore, the head of Cycling UK when - in classic Piers-style - the whole descended into lots of talking and not much listening.

Richard was not backing out 

Richard was seriously unhappy with the fact Duncan was dodging some of his questions and attempting to change the subject, telling him: “Sir, you’re here to answer the questions and you’re not.

“We’re asking the questions – not on our behalf but on behalf of the viewers so could you respect them?

“We didn’t ask you about policing on the road, we asked you…”

As Richard demanded answers, Duncan did attempt to talk but, to be honest, it was too late by that point.

Kate Garraway was also hosting the show and (perhaps wisely) decided to just sit the whole argument out.

Richard’s style divided viewers, many of whom took to Twitter to discuss his presenting stint: 

Richard is one of a number of temporary hosts who are standing in for Piers while he enjoys his summer holidays.

Other presenters who have stepped up to the plate include Jeremy Kyle, who got a bit of a shock yesterday (Wednesday 23 August) when Richard Arnold began crawling over the desk to imitate ‘Magic Mike’ dance moves.
