Piers Morgan, 53, took to Twitter to share the moment Dermot O’Leary and guests announced This Morning as the winners of the award. Once the winners’ names were announced Piers jokingly gave a disappointed look to the camera and refused to clap while his co-star Susanna Reid laughed. ITV shared a GIF of the moment to their official Twitter page with two million followers. They wrote: “Bad luck, @PiersMorgan.
“We can tell you’re absolutely delighted for @ThisMorning for scooping Best Daytime Show though. Vegan sausage rolls all round!
“@Schofe @HollyWills @RuthieeL @RochelleHumes @EamonnHolmes @AlisonHammond2 @OfficialNTAs #NTAs.”
Piers shared the GIF in view of his 6.53 million followers with the caption: “Absolutely thrilled for the snivelling little wretches.”
Many of his social media followers reacted to his post.
One user wrote: “I’m in hysterics well played Piers.”
A second penned: “I think we should have a second vote on this GMB totally deserved to win it!”
A third added: “Hahahahaha I love Piers Morgan.”
Also on Twitter, Piers shared a snap of Susanna Reid from the red carpet at London’s 02 arena tonight.
Susanna put on a busty display in an emerald-coloured gown and it seemed to impress her co-star Piers.
The upload sees the brunette beauty beaming for cameras as she showcased her glamorous look.
Susanna shared the picture with the caption: “National Television Awards…. Come on!!”
Piers also shared the snap and commented using fire emojis, insisting she looked good.
The TV duo previously vowed to change their lifestyles for a week if they won the award.
Piers said he would turn vegan for a week while Susanna said she would break her six-month alcohol-free ban.
Piers told viewers: “If you vote for us, and we win, Susanna Reid will break her alcohol-free [diet] – which has now been going on for about six months.”
Susanna added: “I will get absolutely hammered.”
Piers then asked her: “Will you come here and present the show drunk?” to which Susanna said yes.”
