Piers Morgan Destroys Love Island In Rant On Good Morning Britain


Now we all know Piers Morgan hates a lot of things and Love Island is the subject of his latest on-air rant.

On today’s Good Morning Britain, Piers went off on one over the popular ITV2 dating show, admitting he’d watched an episode the night before last.

He started:

I have never watched a more cretinous bunch of people behaving in a more cretinous manner in my entire life.

But when his co-host Susanna Reid stuck up for the show, which has attracted more than 2 million viewers, saying she’d ‘learnt a lot’ about relationships, his rant went up a notch.

He said:

What are you learning? They are such complete cretins.

It’s like a bunch of David Beckhams have been incarcerated with a bunch of the refuseniks from ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, the ones who never got into the actual show itself.

They’ve all been put into this hell hole, which is designed to basically scramble my brain and turn me into a complete lump of molten porridge. I can’t deal with it any longer.

And millions of people are watching this tripe. What is the matter with this country?

Reid had also accused Piers of being ‘intimidated by the abs’.


The rant reached a head with the former Britain’s Got Talent Judge – what was he saying about cretinous behaviour, again? – declaring the show had been designed to ‘scramble his brain’ and turn him into a ‘lump of molten porridge’.

Piers, chill out will you?
