Piers Morgan has taken to Twitter to celebrate after it was revealed that Good Morning Britain has received two BAFTA nominations. The popular breakfast show has received two separate nominations in the Best News Coverage category for two of their segments; On a Knife Edge, a special which looked at knife crime, and their exclusive interview with the Duchess of Sussex's father, Thomas Markle. Piers was unsurprisingly delighted by the nomination, and tweeted: "BREAKING: Half of all the BAFTA nominations for Best News Coverage have gone to @GMB - our first ever BAFTA noms too. Very proud of the whole team!"

He then pointed out out that the Guardian hadn't mentioned the show's nomination in their coverage of the BAFTA nominations, adding: "Guardian refuses to mention that @GMB got half of all the Best News Coverage nominations. I love how much this must be killing them," accompanied by a laughing crying emoji. The show is up against Bullying and Harassment in the House of Commons and Cambridge Analytica Uncovered.
