Piers Morgan tears into David Walliams’ ‘unfunny’ turn at National Television Awards


Despite boycotting the National Television Awards this year, Piers Morgan still appeared to come away from the event with a huge chip on his shoulder.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, who lost out to This Morning in the Live Magazine Show category, launched a scathing attack on host David Walliams and winners Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

Taking to Twitter, Piers snapped: “Bradley Walsh’s loser reactions are ten times funnier than anything the host has done.

“Can he do it next year please?

“Andy why is Bradders not winning any awards? He’s one of the most entertaining, hard working guys on TV.”

He spoke out just after The Chase star Bradley was trounced by Ant and Dec who took home a record breaking 19th win in the Best Presenter category.

The iconic duo were also presented the Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

Their winning streak comes after Ant returned to his TV commitments this year following a 10 month hiatus to focus on his sobriety.

While after taking over from Dermot O’Leary this year, David Walliams’ turn as host received a mixed reaction from viewers at home.

At one point David was jeered by the audience at London’s 02 Arena for making a joke about Caroline Flack.

When The Masked Singer host Joel Dommmett appeared onstage with the Hedeghog character from the show, David quipped: “Thank you – and so nice to see Caroline Flack back on TV as well.”

Then in his open monologue he swiped at actor Laurence Fox, BGT co-stars Ant and Dec and Gavin and Stacey funnyman Rob Brydon.

“You guys are the real stars, by which I mean you’re miles away from Earth. But without you, us lot down here would be nothing. I mean I’ll be fine, I’ve got my bestselling children’s books.”

“Their diaries would be emptier than Laurence Fox’s,” he added, referring to the other TV stars.

Referencing the seating position of the Geordie duo, Walliams said: “They are on the front row not because they’re important, it’s because they’ve forgotten their booster seat.”

Walliams then mocked Welsh star Byrdon as he reflected on James Corden and Ruth Jones’ success.

“Uncle Bryn has got his ferry ads,” he joked.
