GMB fans compare Kate Garraway to Piers Morgan during fiery Alex Salmond chat

GMB viewers said Kate Garraway was "morphing into Piers Morgan" after conducting a fiery live TV interview with Alex Salmond.

The controversial politician appeared on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday morning to discuss his dream of Scottish independence.

Alex, 66, hopes to create a so-called 'super majority' in Holyrood to take Scotland out of the United Kingdom with his new party and his rival Nicola Sturgeon's SNP.

During the interview, Kate, 53, repeatedly grilled Alex Salmond on his former conduct – claiming the public doesn't think he is the right man for the job.

Not stopping there, Derek Draper's wife also questioned if he could even do a deal with Sturgeon after an explosive showdown with her last month.

At multiple points during the live TV interview, Salmond called out Kate for "interrupting him" and not letting him finish answering the question.

Kate's strong performance saw her likened to her former co-star Piers.

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "Garraway trying to take piers Morgan’s role, it’s not really working Kate #GMB."

Another added: "GMB just gives me a headache. Shouting over each other during "interviews", more like an early morning Jeremy Kyle show."

A third moaned: "Kate you're not Piers Morgan let other people speak."

A fourth chimed in: "Kate hasn’t learned that she is not Piers and comes across as just interrupting for effect, whereas Piers had conviction about why he was interrupting."
