Piers Morgan teases he's joining BBC Breakfast 'to appease wokies'

Piers Morgan has trolled Dan Walker, again, and teased he ‘starts Monday’ on BBC Breakfast, following Louise Minchin’s announcement she was leaving the programme after 20 years.

Dan shared a rather lovely post about his colleague, wondering what he was going to do without the presenter and lamenting his life would be ‘poorer’ without her on the BBC sofa next to him.

Enter Piers Morgan.

It’s no secret the pair have had a long-term slinging match on social media, as the former Good Morning Britain presenter taunted Dan and BBC Breakfast from his ITV desk – but now the journalist is teasing he’ll be taking Louise’s place.

Sharing Dan’s sweet post on Tuesday, Piers wrote: ‘Stop blubbing Dan – I start Monday.

‘BBC wanted the guy who beat you in the ratings, and the first same-sex male breakfast presenting team to appease the wokies.’

After ‘taking a deep breath’, Louise told viewers: ‘This year, it will be 20 years since I first presented this programme. Since then I felt part of a huge BBC Breakfast family which includes everyone who works here, everyone on the team and every one of you who watches the programme. I’ve loved being part of it.

‘But. There is a but. You know about the but. I have decided that is time that I stopped setting my alarm for 3.40 – sometimes when I’m feeling really rebellious, 3.46 – in the morning, and I’m going to be leaving the programme.’

Louise said her departure would ‘not be for a while’, and thanked the viewers for their loyalty.
