Good Morning Britain hosts Charlotte Hawkins and Adil Ray were accused of being impartial as Alex Deane appeared on the show.

The GMB hosts were discussing pictures which were released of Prime Minister Boris Johnson from the garden in Downing Street during lockdown.

On Tuesday morning, Alex was discussing the photos on the show when he accused Adil of being "political" and making it "personal", before telling the hosts they were not "impartial".

As Adil and Charlotte were discussing the photos, Alex said: "I understand you want to use this opportunity to have a go at him," which prompted Adil to cut him off immediately.

Adil said: "Don't say to me I'm trying to be political. I lost three family members, this isn't just about politics. Please think about those people too."

Alex added: "Forgive me, if you're going to make it personal Alex -", before he got cut off by Nina Myskow who fumed: "He's allowed to make it personal. People have died.

"People have lost relatives. He's allowed to say that. Have you lost anybody Alex?"

He informed that he lost his father as the hosts told him they were sorry for his loss, before he added that the discussion was an "extraordinary way" to approach the debate.

As Nina told Alex that he was "disrespecting" Adil, it prompted Alex to tell her that they were "abusing people" as they said they should show off their gardens and said they were doing so on the programme.

Nina chirped: "I'm sitting here and I'm discussing this, how dare you say that I'm abusing you. I'm putting the hundreds of thousands of people who were bereaved, mourning and you should have more empathy."

Alex urged them not to make it personal again, before accusing GMB of being impartial.

He said: "You're going to have to decide if you're an impartial arena in which people air their views one on one in a fair debate, or if you're an arena in which before someone comes on air, the hosts are going to tweet jokes about people getting drunk at work and their cheese and wine parties are being disruptive to the workplace.

"I would suggest not having a position of your own and having a fair debate."

Alex's response came after Adil Ray tweeted about the claimed party on Twitter on Monday night through a series of tweets, including one which read: "Johnson defence re cheese & wine party: “they were at work, talking about work”.

"So plumbers, you were allowed to meet so long as you discussed the latest bathtub prices at Wicke’s, TV people if you discussed Succession, Nurses if you talked COVID. Etc…Which is what we all do!!!"
