ITV Good Morning Britain viewers compare Richard Madeley to Alan Partridge over ‘TV gold’ Ukraine coverage

18

Good Morning Britain presenter Richard Madeley has been slammed by viewers for his coverage of the situation in Ukraine, with some comparing him to Alan Partridge. The show was updating viewers on growing fears that Russia could invade the Eastern European state, but viewers were distracted by the I’m A Celeb star’s ‘TV gold coverage’.

One tweeted: “Richard madeley going full partridge on GMB talking about war this morning is tv gold.” Another wrote: “Richard Madeley on the prospect of war between Russia and Ukraine: ‘if this thing kicks off’. Never let it be said that ITV have dumbed down.”

While a third joked: “Richard Madeley is on the verge of asking the armed forces expert if he knows Andy McNabb on @gmb”. A fourth was mocking the presenter a similar way by saying: ““Only Richard Madeley could compare potential war between Ukraine & Russia, to the Second World War.”

It didn’t stop there. Another said: “Richard Madeley presenting and interviewing style reminds me of that dad who tries to act cool in front of his kids mates.”

While someone else tweeted: “Richard Madeley has been a presenter for 20+ years, yet he still manages to act like he’s on work experience. Is he really the best presenter GMB could hire? Or do they mistakenly think people like him?”
