The controversial journalist and presenter posted online that he has signed up to host the show for another two years, sarcastically saying that it was a bad news for him and his co-host. BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker was one of the first to almost congratulate him. “What channel is that on?” he joked, referencing the ratings battle between BBC Breakfast and Good Morning Britain. His interview with a so-called gay cure therapist became the most complained about programme of 2017. Morgan also accused the BBC of discrimination, saying that he was simply “highlighting BBC gender equality hypocrisy.” He prominently opposes trans rights and the concept of gender fluidity.
