Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Good Morning Britain viewers stormed to Twitter to rage about Kate Garraway cutting an MP's conversation short so the show could broadcast the new John Lewis Christmas advert.

GMB hosts Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway were back on the show to present the latest news headlines and were excited to see the new ad.

But prior to this, the duo were speaking with one guest via video link about Tory MP Owen Paterson, who has avoided a suspension from the House of Commons.

Though, midway through the interview, Kate angered viewers after she stopped the debate to show the new John Lewis Christmas advert.

Fans took to social media to share their thoughts, with one saying: "Well that was #gmb deciding that they’d had enough of discussing serious corruption in our political system and they needed to suddenly deviate to show 10 seconds of the John Lewis Christmas ad. #ToryCorruption ?? Look over there everyone it’s a Christmas advert."

A second said: "@GMB WTF???? ARE YOU SERIOUS? You abruptly halted a serious interview regarding #Tory to show a clip of an advert? You have sunk to a new low! #GMB @benshephard I thought you were a good guy? Absolute disgrace. #ToryCorruption #JohnsonOut."

Sharing a clip of the moment on Twitter, a third penned: "This was a disgrace!"

And a fourth wrote: "STFU about this John Lewis advert & carry on about the corrupt tory discussion that you interrupted to show it."

The release of the annual John Lewis Christmas advert signals the beginning of the festive season for many people around the UK.

This year's ad, entitled Unexpected Guest, follows the story of a young alien girl who crashes to earth in her spaceship and meets a human boy during Christmas.

14-year-old Nathan introduces the alien, Skye, to the delights of the festive season as he treats her to mince pies and novelty Christmas jumpers.

The pair then make an unlikely friendship, with puppy love blossoming, before she heads back to space on her now-fixed spaceship.
