Watch: Piers Morgan opens show holding a pig
The outspoken broadcaster didn’t hold back as he shared his feelings about the Prime Minister on Piers Morgan Uncensored on Wednesday, saying he thought nothing could 'save his bacon' now.
Clutching the pig in his arms, he told viewers: “Boris Johnson must go.
"The greased piglet of politics has slipped and squirmed through almost three disastrous years of disorder and deceit."
He went on: "Thirty eight resignations in two days have butchered his government and tonight, surely, nothing can now save his bacon."
Viewers couldn’t believe what they were seeing and some shared their reaction by posting laughing emojis on Twitter.
“Absolute comedy gold,” one person tweeted.
“What the hell is happening now? Why is Piers Morgan holding a pig?” said another shocked viewer.
However, others said they were “perplexed” by the stunt.
“Just tuned in, saw Piers with a piglet so turned off,” posted one person.
Someone else quipped: “Piers off and let the pig run things.”
Morgan was speaking as Johnson was expected to step down, amid a flurry of resignations from the government.
He also shared his thoughts on Twitter, urging the Prime Minister to resign.
“This is humiliating for you, toe-curling for the rest of us, and so damaging to the country,” he said.
“It’s over, done, kaput… pack your bags and get out of Downing Street.”
The prime minister has since announced his intention to resign.
