Piers Morgan: GMB host takes swipe I'm a Celebrity star Ruthie for putting on 'waterworks'

Like many of us in the UK, Piers Morgan, 55, has been watching the highly-anticipated 2020 series of I’m A Celebrity, but he wasn’t onboard with some of the reactions from the campers last night. Actress Ruthie Henshall fought back tears as she battled with her first “low” day in the camp, and while she received support from her fellow celebs staying in the ruins of Gwrych Castle, there was no sympathy from Peirs.

In what appears to be a bit of a indirect dig, he took to Twitter to mock what he likened to as a sob-story to avoid the first elimination.

“I could never do #ImACeleb – because I wouldn’t be able to stop laughing when my camp-mates turned on the crowd-pleasing ‘PLEASE DON’T VOTE ME OFF!’ waterworks,” he wrote.

Disregarding the blatant swipe, fans rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the Good Morning Britain star being subjected to all the ITV show has to throw at him.

“You couldn’t survive without the fine wine and gourmet food!” one joked.

“You have an idea of you will be in here, I’ll be the mother, I’ll be the entertainer, I’ll be this, that and the other, but you’re not the strong woman that you thought you were.”

Victoria Derbyshire also took time to console her place, offering her some kind words of encouragement.

She said: “You are absolutely allowed to feel vulnerable, no one is strong all of the time, no one.

“No one is happy all of the time, none of these things are a permanent state, it’s good to let it out, let it go, get it out of your system.”
