    Good Morning Britain viewers were left unimpressed as one guest speaker seemingly made a dig at I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Olivia Attwood.

    Olivia was forced to exit the jungle after just 24 hours after show medics raised concerns – confessing she was “gutted” to be forced to leave the camp so early.

    But, appearing on GMB, Andrew Pierce seemed sarcastic as he said he was “devastated” about her exit, and didn’t even know Olivia’s name.

    Speaking about Matt Hancock possibly entering the camp early, Pierce said: “Well now he might have to come in now this woman’s pulled out.”

    Susanna Reid corrected him: “Olivia Attwood has pulled out. We’re not entirely sure why, medical reasons.”

    “Devastating,” Andrew commented, sounding sarcastic as Susanna raised her voice to say: “We hope that she is all right. Seems a terrible shame because I thought she was absolutely brilliant for the few moments she was in there. Great fun.”

    The political commentator appeared alongside Kevin Maguire, who seemed more impressed with Olivia’s performance as he praised her skydive.

    He commented: "When she jumped out of the plane and said she was worried she was going to lose the veneers on her teeth!"

    Some fans were left with a sour taste after Pierce appeared on the show, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.

    One branded him a "clown", as someone else begged GMB to "get rid" of the commentator.

    Someone else fumed: "[Pierce] continually talks over people and shouts people down. The lack of self awareness in him (and GMB who continually have him on) is staggering."

    Turning his attention back to Matt Hancock's impending arrival, Andrew went on to say: "I can't decide whether I am going to vote him to do the BushTucker trials to humiliate him or just get him out as quickly as possible.

    "Because we want him humiliated either way, don't we?"

    Susanna then interjected to say: "Well, we know you do, Andrew, because you've got a certain term for him!" – after he branded the former Health Secretary a "d***head" on live telly last week.

    It comes after one of Olivia's pals confirmed: "This has nothing to do with her ADHD or anxiety.

    "Olivia wasn’t feeling ill, unwell, she was perfectly fine. There was just something that came up which concerned the show medical team and it escalated from there."

    GMB airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
