Piers Morgan reignites Dan Walker feud as he mocks Channel 5 move: ‘Dan who?’

Piers Morganappears to have reignited his feud with fellow TV presenterDan Walkerin light of him leaving BBC Breakfast for a new position at Channel 5.

In recent years, Piers, 56, and Dan, 45, have hosted two of the UK’s most popular breakfast news programmes, sparking the pair to have some competition with one another.

With this in mind, they would often take to Twitter to “joust” with each other.

Things appeared to quieten down between the two of late, but Piers has reignited their feud by making a dig atDan’s new job at Channel 5.


Asked about their rivalry, Piers said to theMirror: “Dan who? Hasn’t he disappeared to Channel 5 or something. He disappeared with his tail between his legs after we beat him in the ratings.

“It was actually quite priceless as we beat the BBC on my last day [on ITV ’s Good Morning Britain] so he couldn’t ever do anything about it.”

“He could never beat us again,” he went on. “Anyway, best wishes to Dan. I hope he enjoys Channel 5. Is that still on TV? Apparently, yes.”

Dan’s thought to havesigned a £1.5 million deal with Channel 5ahead of his move from BBC, despite having once said that he isn’t “motivated by money”.

A source said toThe Sunabout his move: “He’d made it pretty clear he wanted to front prime-time evening shows on the BBC for quite some time.

“He went to them to discuss his future after getting the offer from Channel 5 in the hope that they’d give him what he wanted to keep him on the breakfast show.”

They went on: “The details have yet to be finalised but could include a quiz show or a programme in the style of Susan Calman’s Grand Days Out.”

As Dan prepares to join Channel 5,Piers will be starting his new role at TalkTV next week.

The new sixty minute daily show will be broadcast every week night in the UK on TalkTV as well as streamed around the world on FOX in America and Sky News Australia.

The former GMB host said of his new job: “I’m delighted to now be returning to live television with a new daily show whose main purpose is to cancel the Cancel Culture which has infected societies around the world. I want it to be a platform for lively vigorous debate, news-making interviews, and that increasingly taboo three-letter word: fun. I also want it to annoy all the right people.”
