This Morning slammed as millionaire guests brand GCSEs 'pointless' saying 'I didn't get any – look at me now' | The Sun
THIS Morning viewers have been left baffled after a ‘bizarre’ segment on the show, following people across the country getting their GCSE results.
Every August students in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland eagerly await the results of their GCSE exams – taken before they left school.
And today was the big day, so it was marked by a segment on ITV daytime show This Morning as Rochelle Humes and Andi Peters were joined by two millionaire guests.
One was Dragons' Den star Duncan Bannatyne, 76, who joined via video link, and the other was Dave Fishwick, and they conversed about being millionaires, despite never having got a GCSE.
The segment was quick to gain backlash on social media, as fans accused the show of celebrating those who didn’t get qualifications.
One person wrote: “Ridiculous segment, it was a completely different time! #ThisMorning."

Another echoed: “How many millionaires did do exams? Let's not celebrate not doing your best or not trying in exams #ThisMorning."
And a third added: “There’s nothing more reassuring than 4 millionaires sitting round a table bragging about how easy it was to make their money is it #ThisMorning.”
A fourth person commented: “We don’t have GCSEs but were millionaires' well good for you two #ThisMorning.”
During the conversation, Dave enthusiastically told the hosts: “I didn't take any exams!”

He went on to say how communication skills are “far more important than qualifications.”
Dave added: “What I did was the year before my father got me a job on a building site, it was a summer job for five weeks and the builder said to me at the end of the five-week holiday, 'I'll give you a job when you leave school lad, you've worked hard’
“So I thought, 'I don't need qualifications' so straight from school, no qualifications, onto a building site."
Duncan nodded in agreement with Dave, and went on to share how he had no qualifications but had still managed to find success.
Rochelle added: “Well I didn’t get the grades and I’ve gone on to get a career since.”
