Piers Morgan had a mini-meltdown this morning over a faulty earpiece, which had apparently been giving him trouble for a week.

The Good Morning Britain host ran into a few technical issues and could be heard on air giving the ITV show's producers a bit of a bollocking.

As he and co-host Susanna Reid attempted to cross to a live report, he spoke up to tell his bosses he couldn't hear what they were saying.

He said: "I still can't hear anyone in my bloody ear. I don't know what's going on with this.

"It's been going on for a week now. Can someone talk to me? I'm not hearing anyone. There's no one there."


Before saying: "Oh we're on air?" and carrying on with his lines. Nice and awkward.

Later on in the show, Piers spoke out about extremism, saying 'shame on you' to anyone who didn't report concerns about people who may have been influenced.

Speaking just hours after the terror attack in Finsbury Park, which saw a man plough into people who had just left a mosque, Piers said: "If you know who that man is, his video is all over the place on the internet. If he lives near you and you saw him turn into an extremist, then shame on you for not shopping him earlier.

"It's incumbent on all of us in all sections of our society to root these people out, whether they're Islamists or white extremists, get them out before they commit these atrocities."

A 48-year-old man has been arrested in relation to the attack.
