MENTAL health campaigners have congratulated Piers Morgan for making it through an entire interview without storming out offended.
Fragile, delicate Piers left his last job after walking out live on air, unable to cope with the stress of being mildly criticised by a part-time weatherman.
Ever since the snowflake former Mirror editor has been trying to build up the mental strength to survive an hour-long interview, in the full knowledge that his beliefs may be challenged by others at any time.
An ITV insider said: “We set up the interview with Keir Starmer because we knew he’d rush to agree with anything Piers said, saving him from the immense trauma of opposing viewpoints.
“Nonetheless it was touch-and-go. What if Keir said something positive about vegan sausage rolls? What if he believed that a model who’d appeared nude could also be a feminist?
“We had a team of professionals on hand in case Piers was triggered by a memory of Daniel Craig wearing a baby carrier. But he made it. We’re so proud. Naomi Osaka sent her personal congratulations.”
