And Susanna Reid is firmly on Iain's side...
We all know that Piers Morgan isn’t the biggest fan of Love Island. His awkward interview with ex-contestant Jonny Mitchell last week proved just that.
And while Jonny, 26, seemed to win that round, it seems the war isn’t over.
The 52-year-old spoke to narrator Iain Stirling on this morning’s Good Morning Britain, and he went in. Once again.
Talking via a video link, Piers asked: ‘My kids love it but I’m worried about the role model impact on my sons who are 23, 20 and 16.
‘Do I really want them thinking these women are the great aspiration for their romantic ideal? And for my nieces, do I want them looking at these blokes thinking: “There lies the path of true love?”‘
Iain didn’t seem fazed by the question. We mean, he probably expected it.
The 29-year-0ld replied: ‘I suppose that’s down to you as an individual. I guess you take what you will, I think it’s quite a good lesson in how to conduct yourself in relationships. It’s quite a good lesson to learn. People make mistakes but who doesn’t in real life?’
But that wasn’t the end of it. Piers then told his co-host (and Love Island fan) Susanna Reid that she was going through a ‘mid-life crisis’, to which she responded: ‘I’m learning a lot actually. How to do dating!’
Piers held his head in his hands and continued to hit out at Susanna, 46. But Iain stuck up for her, joking: ‘Piers you’ve got to start paying attention. You’re getting mugged off! Look mate, you melt! Watch it, you melt.’
Of course, viewers had a lot to say about Piers’ views.
One Tweeted: ‘Stop banging on about Love Island you bore – I don’t watch it either but I don’t spend my time moaning about it to the people that do watch,’ while another wrote: ‘Piers Morgan thinks love island isn’t a good roll model, does he think he is? At least the love islanders aren’t so judgemental #LoveIsland [sic].’
