Susanna Reid grilled the PM over the cost of living crisis
His ignorance about TV legend Lorraine Kelly sent shockwaves around the nation.
“We all know Lorraine Kelly,” Piers told Tom Newton Dunn on TalkTV.
“I think he knows who Lorraine Kelly is, he just didn’t know what on earth was going on in that whole interview.
“I thought Susanna skewered him beautifully and he just lost his way and lost his mind as he does so often.
“He can probably survive partygate to a degree, maybe even survive surging inflation. He can’t survive insulting Lorraine Kelly. It’s over for him.”
Good Morning Britain fans showered Susanna with praise after her first interview with Boris in five years.
He had ducked out of interviews while Piers was on the show – even going as far as to hide in a fridge.
Piers added: “It’s good to see him back on Good Morning Britain. It only took him five years and he waited until I’d left.”
The PM insisted the government was doing “everything we can” – but admitted he could not completely shield people from crippling costs.
But Boris admitted it still would not be enough to shield everyone from the cost of living onslaught clobbering Brits.
One fan wrote on Instagram: “Wow, @susannareid100 what a brilliant interviewer, presenter & reporter you are. Thank you for what you do & bringing it to us all.
Another said: “Best interview yet u grill him.
A third posted: “Sterling job Susanna unmissable TV.”
