@bigmac_billy echoed: “For God’s sake let the man speak. Why invite someone in, ask him questions then keep interrupting him whilst giving his answer. It’s not all about YOU.” (sic)
@MancTotter pleaded: “Please just shut Richard Madeley up.”
“I just can’t listen to Madeley when it’s a conversation about a serious subject, he just tries to score points. #GMB,” @laird01554927 went on to say.
@bhindi12 commented: “It would have been good to hear what Crispin Blunt had to say without the interruptions from Suzanna and Richard.” (sic)

@TalbotRothwell stepped in to defend the ITV host as they tweeted: “Richard Madeley really is the best journalist ever. His intelligence and caring attitude put him way above any other. Thank you, Richard.”
During one part of the interview when the MP tried to speak, Richard interrupted: “You had the attack last week….”
As MP Crispin tried to cut in, the ITV host went on: “Because you had the attack last weekend, which Susanna said was directly aimed at civilians.
“They were the targets, the children, the parents, and the families.”
“Indeed,” the MP weighed in before Richard interrupted again to get his point across.
In another part of the chat, Susanna asked: “Can there be an unintended consequence here which is the opposite happens?
“Does support for Hammas actually consolidate or grow as we attempt to obliterate them?”
“We don’t know which way that is going to go,” MP Blunt explained. “All we do know is that after the operation on Saturday, it should have been clear how shameful and shocking that was.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
