Piers Morgan mourns GMB loss after Royal Television Society awards

Piers Morgan has been left disappointed after Good Morning Britain lost out yet again in awards dished out by the Royal Television Society.

It was confirmed that the awards ceremony would be live-streamed rather than be held live, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

But, with this in mind, Piers, 54, seemed adamant that this would be the year that Good Morning Britain would win – when they weren't there to accept the award.

Those that were nominated were asked to stay at home in order to avoid a mass gathering, in line with government recommendations.

Piers tweeted after the announcement: "This, of course, will be the time GMB finally wins."

Sadly for the controversial host, this wasn't the cast, and the ITV show lost out in the Daytime Programme category to BBC's The Repair Shop.

Speaking of The Repair Shop, judges said: "The passion pours through the screen. Produced with great confidence and real commitment, it's a show that feels just right for today's audience."

After losing, Piers tweeted: "Breaking: GMB fails to win yet another award."

The Royal Television Society also handed Scarlett Moffatt an award for her Channel 4 show The British Tribe Next Door in the Formatted Popular Factual category.

Judges said of the series: "Genuinely innovative, bravely breaking new ground as a format, an idea realised and executed impeccably well."

Former Gogglebox babe Scarlett was excited about the win, tweeting: "OMG we won. Wow thank you so much, can't believe it."

Her win meant her old show Gogglebox, or at least the celebrity edition, as well as The Circle lost out.

Casualty beat EastEnders and Coronation Street in the Soap and Continuing Drama category.

Judges said: "Excellent central dramatic performances combined with an authentic and gripping story."

Other winners included Phoebe Waller-Bridge for Fleabag in Comedy Writer, and Stormzy's Glastonbury 2019 set in Live Event.
