‘What you said doesn’t count’ Piers Morgan tears into Hugh Grant over tactical vote plan

Despite usually taking Friday off from Good Morning Britain, Piers Morgan was back on ITV’s screens to discuss the general election result alongside a panel which included Stanley and Rachel Johnson. The GMB host wasted no time in taking a swipe at Steve Coogan and Hugh Grant following their campaign throughout the election to persuade voters to oust Boris Johnson as Prime Minister.

The night before the election Coogan told viewers his character Alan Partridge would vote Tory because he’s “ill-informed” during an appearance on Channel 4 news.

Meanwhile, Grant had spent the election campaign urging people to vote for the Liberal Democrats.

The actor was pictured checking his phone with an unimpressed expression as the exit poll results were announced. 

Grant then tweeted: “There goes the neighbourhood.”

Discussing the actors, Morgan said: “[Grant’s] reaction was ‘There goes the neighbourhood’. Actually, there goes his credibility.

“What we’ve discovered, as Hillary Clinton, celebrities can have the opposite effect. Entitled millionaires telling us our vote doesn’t count. 

“I watched Steve Coogan on Channel 4 news I think it was on the day before the election and he was so sneering about Brexiteers called them stupid and thick.

“[He] said his character Alan Partridge was basically like them, ignorant blah blah blah off he went on his little rant and I watched and I thought ‘My god’…”

Interrupting, Susanna Reid asked: “Does that resonate in any way?”

“Imagine if you are a working class northern Labour voter who voted Leave,” Morgan continued. 

“Who’s an Alan Partridge fan…,” Reid added.

“You’ve got this multi-millionaire entitled Hollywood brat telling you your vote doesn’t count,” Morgan said.

“Well good morning Mr Coogan it turned out what you said didn’t count good morning Mr Grant it turned out what you said didn’t count.

“In fact if anything you both had the complete opposite effect in getting Boris elected.”

Earlier in the week, Coogan told Channel 4 news: “Well Alan Partridge is ill-informed and ignorant and therefore he’s a Conservative and a Brexiteer.”

He was asked: “So he’d be voting Boris Johnson?”

“Yes,” Coogan answered. “I think the reason Tories don’t invest as much in education is because they depend on a certain level of ignorance for support.”

With just two seats to be declared, the Conservatives had won 363 seats and Labour had won 203.

Labour suffered huge losses in the general election with leader Jeremy Corbyn confirming he will stand down following the crushing results. 

Meanwhile, Lib Deb leader Jo Swinson lost her seat to SNP rival Amy Callaghan.

Lucifer season 5: Will Ella find out that Lucifer is really the devil?

Lucifer season five will be the final series of the supernatural comedy-drama. Tom Ellis stars as the fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar and at the end of season four, he returned to hell to become its ruler. In season five, Lucifer comes back to Earth but will he finally show Ella Lopez (played by Aimee Garcia) his devil face?

During the past four seasons, Lucifer has been very open about his true identity as the fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar.

However, nobody in his inner circle believes him, apart from his brother Amendiel (DB Woodside), who is also an angel, and his friend Maze (Lesley Ann-Brandt) who is a demon.

It was not until the end of season three that Lucifer’s love interest, Chloe Decker (Lauren German) learned of his true identity.

Throughout season four, Lucifer continuously told his colleague and close friend LAPD forensic scientist, Ella Lopez, that he was in the devil but inevitably, she never believed him.

  • Lucifer season 5: Ella Lopez’ reaction to the real devil revealed

Actress Aimee Garcia who plays Ella Lopez spoke to Entertainment Tonight about Ella and Lucifer’s relationship in the fifth and final season.

Garcia explained that she believed their relationship would change “too much” if she ever knew the truth about Lucifer.

She said: “I love that she doesn’t know because she can say things like, ‘Oh, that’s right you’re the devil. AKA method actor.’

“So, I don’t want to take that fun away from her, especially now that Chloe knows.

“I love when he’s like, ‘You know, my dad, God.’ And Ella can be like, ‘Oh right, your dad, God.’“

Garcia also said that Ella being obvious to Lucifer’s true identity provides relief to some of the more serious personal things that Lucifer experiences on Earth.

She said: “I just think it’s so fun that she can rib him as just being an unemployed actor that can’t catch a break and needs a hug.

“And is like this really sensitive guy. I love that he’s one of the most powerful celestial beings in the history of the world and she’s like, ‘He’s really sensitive you guys.’”

In season four, Ella began to have some huge doubts about her life-long belief in God and the afterlife.

However, in the season four finale, Ella appeared to have made peace with her faith, so for her to realise the devil was walking on Earth, this would change everything for her.

Speaking about how Ella would react to Lucifer’s devil face, Garcia said: “I think she would hug him.

“And I think she would just have a lot of questions. I think she would ask if they could go out for a beer and just really clarify some stuff for her.

“What I love about her is that she is like a real-life angel. She is not judgemental.

“She gives people the benefit of the doubt, she sees the best in people and so I think in the same way, she would be consistent with that, even with the devil because we have heard her say before ‘the devil was a fallen angel’.

“And she specifically said, ‘If you were ever an angel, even a fallen angel, it means that you can’t possibly be all bad.’ So I think she would be really consistent with that and just have a lot of questions.”

This Morning shut down claims Phillip Schofield will be replaced amid ‘feud’ report

Phillip Schofield, 57, is a regular presenter on This Morning, hosting the proceedings alongside Holly Willoughby, 38, for four days a week. However, it was an interaction with Ruth Langsford, 59, from earlier this year which an article from The Sun was referring to when they published the false reports about a complaint. ITV have since denied any feud had taken place and now, they have confirmed the presenter will not be replaced.

According to The Sun, bosses thought Good Morning Britain star Ben Shephard, 44, would be a possible contender to fill in for Phillip.

The reports state the Ninja Warrior host showed “great chemistry” with Holly whilst presenting alongside her earlier this year.

It continues to say ITV Daytime boss Emma Gormley had her sights on the newscaster if Phillip were ever to leave the hit programme.

However, a spokesperson for the broadcaster denied any speculation of the latter being replaced when approached for comment by Express.co.uk.

They confirmed the claims were “untrue”, following denial eight ITV presenters had complained about a “toxic” atmosphere on the set.

“It’s deeply disappointing and unfair for Phillip to be the target of this sort of malicious gossip,” a representative told Express.co.uk.

“Phillip is a much respected broadcaster and colleague and this is absolutely not a description of This Morning that we recognise.”

The reports of a feud with Ruth were exacerbated when a moment resurfaced from April where the host cut off the Loose Woman presenter.

ITV spokesperson

During a crossover link with This Morning’s sister show, Ruth was informing viewers about what was coming up on the show.

However, Phillip had to interject as he and Holly needed to run another link, but it seemed his colleague wasn’t happy.

The panellist seemingly threw down her pen as she said: “Well I only had about two more words to say… don’t worry.”

He told her before Ruth’s reaction: “Guys, we are going to have to jump in there and stop you I’m afraid.

Following the reports complaints had been filed against Phillip, Amanda Holden, 48, gave her view on the matter during her Heart Radio show yesterday.

Whilst Holly was hosting I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! last December, claims surfaced Phillip had “blocked” the Britain’s Got Talent judge from filling in for his co-host.

Angry Jeremy Vine viewer hits back at NHS attack ‘This would have happened under Labour!’

Jeremy Vine welcomed Tony Blackburn, James Max and Jemma Forte onto his Channel 5 show this morning to chat about a number of topics. One of the major talking points was whether or not the row over a boy’s hospital treatment cost Boris Johnson viewers’ vote? The Prime Minister refused to look at a photo of a four-year-old lying on a hospital floor, eventually putting the reporter’s phone in his pocket.

One angry viewer slammed the use of the clip to damage the Conservative Party’s campaign as they insisted the NHS would still be in trouble if Labour were running the country.

Storm noted: “Next we’re going to speak to Susan from Hampshire, who says this incident shouldn’t be blamed on any particular party.”

“The incident of the young lad on the floor Susan?” Jeremy asked.

Susan replied: “Good morning. I think that this will have happened if Labour were in charge as well.

“They’re acting as if it was a Tory thing.”

“Yeah, good point,” Jeremy replied. “I suppose the issue, I don’t want to go on about it, maybe tomorrow we’ll forget about it.

“The issue is that Boris Johnson didn’t seem able to say what he probably have should have done, which is to look at the photo and say, ‘That is terrible. I’m on it and by this afternoon I will give you some answers.’

“He couldn’t say that.”

Susan added: “I agree he handled it wrong but I don’t think it was a mobile phone that was put in his hand when it was put in his pocket.”

“He didn’t think it was a phone?” Jeremy asked looking rather puzzled.

Susan confirmed: “No. I think he probably thought it was a picture.”

“There’s a certain weight to a phone, that would not stand up in court Susan,” Jeremy hit back.

“They’ve also said, and they’ve looked at all the manifestos, the promises that have been made in manifestos are not physically possible. The plans are not credible.”

“Well, I think it has to be a political decision whether we have an NHS, how it’s funded and what political parties decide they are going to do with it if they gain a majority in the next Parliament” Corbyn replied.

“The NHS has to be properly funded and at the moment it isn’t.”

“And, on a more educational level, the issues surrounding nurse training, doctor training and the funding that goes behind that because we have what, 40,000 nurse vacancies in the NHS, we have buildings crumbling, we have very expensive deals on which some of those places were built and we have privatisation within the NHS, which often doesn’t fit in with the NHS culture.”

Strictly 2019: Chris Ramsey to make final in shock twist as former pro speaks out?

Chris Ramsey and Karen Hauer found themselves in the dreaded dance-off last week where they were forced to dance for their survival on BBC the show. So far in the competition the comedian has scored a total of 287 points from the judges, placing him as the least likely star to win the show as all three other couples have scored more than him. But former Strictly Come Dancing professional Camilla Sacre-Dallerup has teased Chris may have what it takes to go all the way.

In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Camilla was asked if the professionals can spot which celebrities will do well in the competition.

“Oh, yeah, definitely,” she revealed. “I mean, you can spot immediately if somebody has any sort of experience in moving on a stage.

“Just like awareness about their own body or where they’re not scared of throwing themselves in the deep end.

“Because you can feel self conscious when you start.”

Camilla explained the key to success for celebrities is having the confidence to go for it.

She explained: “If you think people aren’t scared of [being self conscious], if they’re just like, ‘Oh, it’s fine, if I look silly’, [they’ll do well].

“So comedians can be good at that, because they think ’It doesn’t matter if I look silly at first, because I know that I need to get through that so I can then feel confident doing this.’”

“So it’s kind of an attitude thing,” she added.

Does this mean Chris has what it takes to make it to the final and even lift the Glitterball Trophy?

The comedian has thrown himself into every dance and has had a great journey over the course of the show.

In the first week, Chris’ Cha Cha Cha scored 13 points and in week seven, he scored 34 points for his Street/Commercial routine.

The former Strictly professional continued: “You can learn quite a lot from the beginning, when you see them pick up steps and how they’re kind of processing it in their minds.”

Camilla won the BBC show in 2008 with Tom Chambers and she confessed she knew he would go far the very first time she met him.

“When I met my winning partner, Tom,” she began. “I kind of knew from the very first conversation I had with him.

“His mindset was one of a positive one and that was going to be half the battle.”

“He said he would dream of making the final and having that freestyle to dance like Fred Astaire,” she continued.

Camilla added: “This is what I say about strictly, it is very unique that you have everybody who works on the show, whether it’s in costumes, or producer or camera, or they’re at the top of their game, and that’s why it’s so good.”

Vikings season 6 Amazon Prime release time: What time is Vikings on Amazon?

Vikings season six is coming to history after a near-year-long wait and excitement levels couldn’t be higher. Following on from the action-packed season five finale, the sixth series will pick up with Ivar (played by Alex Hogh Anderson) after his loss at the Siege of Kattegat. With so much drama on its way, fans won’t want to miss a moment. Here are all the times Vikings is released across the globe – on Amazon and History.

Vikings season six premieres on its usual network History US tonight (December 4).

The show’s first episode will air at 9/8c in the US, shortly followed by the second as the new season kicks off with a double-bill.

However, fans in the UK will have to wait a bit longer to find out what happens next.

This is because season six won’t arrive on Amazon Prime until tomorrow (Thursday, December 5), but at what time?

  • Vikings season 6: Real reason Ragnar Lothbrok won’t return

What time is Vikings season 6 released on Amazon Prime?

Unfortunately for UK fans, Amazon Prime doesn’t release an exact time for when their Prime Original Series are dropped onto the service.

But we can get a few clues from the US broadcasting time to figure out roughly when.

A double bill of Vikings will air tonight on History with each episode lasting an hour, including commercials.

The first show will air in the USA at 2am GMT while the second of the double-header will premiere at the equivalent of 3am GMT.

Therefore, it won’t be until after 4am GMT at least that the season six premiere will drop on Prime Video.

This is the only week where History will air a double bill.

After tonight, one episode per week will be shown on the American channel.

So UK fans can expect to watch the next instalment of Vikings sometime after 3am every Thursday.

But this won’t be the case for the Vikings spin-off series.

I’m A Celebrity 2019: James Haskell fights back tears as he exits camp ahead of final

James, 34, became the fourth star to leave the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! jungle tonight, just days before the final of the ITV reality show. As he recalled his journey, the sportsman was celery struggling to hold back his emotions.

After hosts Ant McParltin, 43, and Dec Donnelly, 44, announced the news of the latest elimination, stars such as Jacqueline Jossa, 27, and Caitlyn Jenner, 70, were sad to see James go.

Speaking with the presenters after walking across the infamous bridge to the studio above the camp, he admitted he didn’t think he would get emotional.

“I got quite emotional,” he began, before adding: “I thought I’m not going to well up here and I did.”

Dec remarked: “He’s got a heart,” after the rugby player seemed to have a stern exterior during his two week stint.

Talking more in-depth about his time on the show, the former rugby player said: “I learnt a lot about myself that in terms of challenges and hardship, I kind of suit it well.”

What he enjoyed most was helping other people as he explained being a sportsman and having committed to years of “hard training” gave him the ability to cope and offer support to others.

James said that’s what he had to offer as he admitted he couldn’t sign of dance and neither was he the funniest.

“But what I can do is help people with an arm when needed,” he added.

Discussing the difficulties of having to stay on a strict diet, the sportsman commented: “My body started to shut down,” as he’s used to eating a daily intake of over 4000 calories.

“I didn’t want to complain but I really struggled.

“I’m a stickler for chivalry and manners and I always want the girls to go first but everyone gave me a bit of their food which was really nice,” he explained.

Of another divisive issue about clashing with his campmates, the rugby player gave his thought process on the matter.

I’m A Celebrity 2019: Ian Wright horrified as Myles Stephenson drops shower revelation

After a few weeks in each others’ company in close proximity, many would assume that the campmates have become used to one another’ ways, even smells, but an admission from Myles tonight drove Ian up the wall. And then over the top and down the other side.

Patience might be starting to wear thin in the jungle, although what is very thin is the efficiency of that last dab or spray of deodorant from all those days ago.

Blood, sweat, and tears have been shed: on occasion, even by the celebrities, not just the creatures that have crawled over them.

As the showering facilities aren’t up to the standards they’re used to, not every contestant will be as fragrant as they would be when reclining on a chaise longue, fixing the shed roof, or whatever celebs spend their time doing.

Tonight Myles made an admission which freaked Ian out to such an extent, we may have to consult experts in nuclear physics.

“He’s happy to be reunited with his family. He was talking about champagne and a bath, so it’s a big night for Cliff.”

A bath. The contestants have been dunked, drowned, and dipped into offal, guts, and other animal parts even the most adventurous diner would decline.

The very thought of a bubble bath made Myles consider his own personal scent.

Burying his nose deep into his arm’s musk generator, he claimed a big whiff from his armpit had woken him up.

“I don’t want to talk to you and I can’t look you in the eye. You stinky bum.”

James added his own condemnation: “You stinky little teenage boy!”

However, Myles was unrepentant in the Bush Telegraph, saying personal hygiene is secondary to success.

“We all smell, why do I need to shower? I am not here to impress, I am here to get stars. I am the star lord!”
