Robert Peston brutally under fire by GMB star over new career move: 'He can't do it!'

0


Peston, 60, is best known for holding Government ministers to account in his role as a political broadcaster for ITV. However, last month, viewers saw a very different side to him as he showcased his singing talents on All Star Musicals as he performed his rendition of Luck Be A Lady from Guys and Dolls. However, it seems journalist Andrew Pierce, 60, was not impressed as he shared his views of his colleague’s new career move on Good Morning Britain whilst talking about returning to the theatre.

Pierce expressed his desire to watch Mamma Mia! live once more as lockdown restrictions begin to ease in the next few months.

Offering an alternative, host Adil Ray, 46, said: “There is a series of ITV musicals, maybe (you could take part in that?)

“Robert Peston was terrible,” the journalist remarked as he brutally critiqued the political broadcaster but his review didn’t stop there.

“He was terrible and I would have done a lot better,” the panellist continued with Kevin Maguire, 60, in agreement.

Ranvir Singh, 43, explained to the guests the GMB director thought Peston “did well” by showcasing his singing abilities.

“Peston can’t sing,” Pierce replied, with Ranvir telling him it seemed the “jury was out” over their critique of the political broadcaster.

“No, the jury is not out. He was terrible,” the journalist hit back at the host’s remark, who went on to ask if he would take part.

Pierce said he would love to showcase his musical abilities, with Maguire adding: “Your director thinks he can have both points of view.”

However, on the night All Star Musicals aired, viewers seemed rather impressed with Peston’s new career move.

 

The journalist said: “I love singing and have always adored old Broadway shows. I [would] make a fool of myself, but I could not care less!”

“I [was] not looking forward to being judged. I will care, I definitely will care.

“Guys and Dolls was my dad’s favourite musical so I am hoping he will be proud of me. I am performing for him.”

An insider explained why ITV bosses wanted him on board, stating: “Robert loves singing and music and [was] up for a laugh.

“Away from the cameras he doesn’t take himself too seriously and is very game.”

“He [was] looking forward to showing off his musical ability,” the source told The Sun.

Unfortunately for Peston, he did not win the latest instalment of All Star Musicals as his co-star Judge Robert Rinder, 42, won.

He was up against Bradley Walsh’s, 60, son Barney Walsh, 23, as the pair had scored the highest with the panel.

Commenting on the result, one viewer wrote on Twitter: “Judge Rinder on #AllStarMusicals is so precious…I love him so much.”

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
