‘BBC Breakfast’ presenter Dan Walker has been embroiled in a number of Twitter clashes with ITV star Piers Morgan since his debut on the TV show four years ago. Another could follow in response to the ‘Good Morning Britain’ host’s promise of a “big announcement” today (July 16). On the social media platform he teased fans to “watch this space” and made a series of jokes about the update, only to unveil that he had written a new book at midday. Dan may reignite their longstanding feud with a cheeky snub in response to the self-promotional post in a continuation of their lighthearted rivalry.
Of their many bitter exchanges, one notable clash erupted online when the 43-year-old host was subject to a snarky comment by Piers Morgan, 55, about a technical issue on the BBC show.
When the programme briefly stopped broadcasting because of a hitch in December 2018, Dan joked in a tweet: “Can you see us on BBC1? Have we gone somewhere? Can someone put the plug back in?”
Shortly after they came back on-air, he made a cheeky reference to US sci-fi film ‘Back to the Future’, when he wrote: “We’re back. The flux capacitor is working again.”
Unable to resist an opportunity, Piers quickly chimed in with a brutal snub to his TV rival one minute after the tweet was posted, where he wrote: “Cut off for being too boring?”
But the ‘BBC Breakfast’ star bluntly fired back: “Our black screen still had double your audience [laughing face emoji].”
A number of Twitter users praised him for his quick-wit, with messagings that included “Well done”, “go Dan”, “spot on” and some who branded him “hilarious”.
One person wrote: “Hauled out the flamethrower for that epic burn.”
Another commented: “I turned over to ITV to check it wasn’t our TV but quickly turned back to the blank screen because it was infinitely preferable to the ITV Breakfast Show!”

While Piers didn’t respond online, he chose to fire back on GMB where he claimed their programme has been canned for poor viewing figures.
He said: “Our rivals at BBC Breakfast have had the plug pulled on them.
“Apparently they went off air. Apparently it took a long time for anyone to realise.
“If you’re watching the BBC and you’re obviously bored come over here – we have power in every sense.”
