Piers Morgan slams ‘young wokies’ at ITV

Piers Morgan was booed on Tuesday evening as he was introduced at the National Television Awards.

It comes after host Joel Dommett was introducing a series of people nominated in various categories.

Joel said: “Piers Morgan is here!”

However, when the camera panned to the TalkTV host, booing could be heard from audiences in the crowd.

As Piers seemed to be ignoring the less-than-warm reaction, Joel couldn’t help but comment on the situation.

Picking up on the reaction, Joel said: “Hey, everyone, say what you like about Piers Morgan-“

Although that appeared to be all he had to say as Piers pulled a confused face at the jibe that was made.

Speaking about how he might fair in his category, he added: “I don’t have any competition.”
