It was the Home Secretary’s response to these issues in particular which led to several fans taking to social media to voice their disdain for the chat.
“Car crash interview with the Home Secretary on @BBCBreakfast,” said one fan on Twitter. “‘Tests in Bolton aren’t available’. ‘They ARE available'”
A second weighed in: “Priti Patel giving the answers she chooses whilst ignoring the questions she has been asked … whilst never being interrupted or unchallenged on #BBCBreakfast.”
While a third added: “Priti Patel having an absolute mare on #BBCBreakfast trying to explain what’s going on with the testing. There clearly is a problem with sample (swab) collection – does anyone know what’s actually happening with lab (test) capacity?”
