Watch: Andi Peters made a hilarious Liam Neeson gag on GMB and people can't handle it


Andi Peters has reaffirmed his reputation for being a national treasure after taking a huge swipe at Liam Neeson on live television.

On Good Morning Britain today 48-year-old presenter was doing an outside broadcast from a house in the Wirral where he was visiting a competition winner who’d won £250,000 on the show.

After being introduced by GMB host Piers Morgan, Peters began his intro with: “And I’m the black man that everybody loves I hope because I give away money, and I give away loads of money.”

He then proceeded to lock the family’s front door, adding: “I do it every day, but I am going to lock the front door just in case Liam Neeson is in the area.”

The hosts of the show found his comments hilarious, as did many viewers of the show who took to Twitter to praise the former Live & Kicking presenter.

His comments come off the back of a controversial interview given by Neeson this week, where the Irish star admitted to prowling the streets with a cosh looking for “a black b*****d” to “kill”, after his friend had been raped.

His comments were met with a swift backlash with many people accusing the Taken star’s actions of being “racist”. Yesterday he refuted being a bigot, telling Good Morning America “I’m not racist”.

He added: “After that there were some nights I went out deliberately into black areas in the city, looking to be set upon so that I could unleash physical violence.

“I did it four, maybe four or five times until I caught myself and it really shocked me, this primal urge. It was shocking.”

Neeson continued: “I’m not racist, this was nearly 40 years ago. But because I was brought up in the north of Ireland, I was brought up in the Troubles in the 60s, 70s and early 80s. There was a war going on in the north of Ireland and I had acquaintances who were involved in the Troubles.

“The bigotry, one Catholic would be killed, the next day a Protestant would be killed, one Catholic pub would be bombed and a Protestant pub would be bombed.

“I grew up surrounded by that. But I was never part of it.”

Om Good Morning Britain yesterday, Piers Morgan called his words: “So racist. It’s like Ku Klux Klan stuff.”

However footballer John Barnes says the Irish star “deserves a medal” for his honesty.
