Susanna Reid hints Piers Morgan is faking outrage for ratings on Good Morning Britain

Piers Morgan appears to have been angrier than ever on Good Morning Britain in recent weeks.

And co-host Susanna Reid has definitely noticed, hinting that he is faking his outrage for ratings.

For the second day in a row, Piers introduced a debate on the Gillette advert, which he branded an ‘attack on masculinity’.

"Well Gillette’s latest ad campaign is a war on man and masculinity and mankind – that’s my view but others apparently disagree," he said.

Shaking her head, Susanna said exasperatedly: "It’s manufactured outrage, Piers Morgan. It comes just days after the American Psychological Association labelled masculinity as harmful

He retorted: "So so manufactured now, is it?"

"And you present her with… what more could a woman want than a […] £1 tinny little ring from poundland," Piers said as he showed off the silver ring adorned with a red gem in the box. "To show the real depth of my feelings for you."

Susanna looked less than impressed as she gave him a flat look before saying: "Talk to the hand."
