Piers Morgan brands Dan Walker ‘virtue-signalling fraud’ in Meghan Markle clash

Piers Morgan has continued his bitter feud with Dan Walker after the former BBC Breakfast responded to a tweet of his with a jibe about his treatment of Meghan Markle.

Piers called Dan a "virtue-signalling fraud" in the Twitter row which came about during Sunday's Wimbledon men's final between Novak Djokovic and the controversial Aussie Nick Kyrgios.

The hot-headed Aussie is known for his temper on the court and this was the case again in the SW19 decider, which saw him suffer defeat in his first-ever Grand Slam final, going down to Djokovic 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6.

A particularly explosive incident saw Kyrgios become fed up with a crowd member who he said was “drunk out of her mind”.

Kyrgios screamed that she looked like she’d had “about 700 drinks” and demanded that she be thrown out of the court.

All this happened when Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince George were watching from the Royal Box.

Following the incident, Piers took to Twitter and said: "What do we do if Kyrgios starts abusing the royals?"

Soon after, Dan hit back with a quip about Piers’ criticism of Meghan Markle.

He jibed: "Write an article about Meghan Markle?"

It didn't take long for Piers to hit back at his TV rival and accused Dan of "virtue-signalling".

He retaliated: "Aww, it’s so sweet how you stand up for fellow virtue-signalling frauds."

The latest incident in the feud came just two weeks after Piers branded the former BBC Breakfast presenter the 'most boring interviewer'.

Piers, 57, now presents his own primetime programme 'Piers Morgan Uncensored' on start-up network, TalkTV moving from ITV's Good Morning Britain whilst Dan Walker, 45, moved from BBC Breakfast to be the lead anchor on Channel 5 News.

Both men had interviewed union leader Mick Lynch during the rail strikes, with a row breaking out almost immediately in the aftermath.

Dan, meanwhile, has responded to fan comments that suggest he has more “freedom” as a journalist at Channel 5 – telling them it’s “just not true”.

“I have always valued journalism over sensationalism, whether at the BBC or not. I was never told what to say, or what not to say, at the BBC.” he said.
