The journalist accused Adil of “helping to destroy” the ratings he had built up before his sudden departure earlier this year.
Taking to Twitter, Piers shared an article about Adil’s swipe at him with his 7.9 million followers.
He captioned the tweet: “Hmmm. Given how Mr Ray has helped destroy GMB’s ratings since I left, if I were him I’d probably avoid mocking the guy who took them to record heights…”
It is true that in June, the ITV show’s viewing figures slumped from 1.9m to 450k after Piers’ exit back in March.
However, one month later on June 28, Susanna Reid celebrated ratings peaking at 1.2 million viewers, which was a 20% improvement from the same time last year.
