GMB ‘car crash’ moment as viewers slam Ed Balls’ ‘nasty’ question to runner

ITV viewers have hit out over a “car crash” interview with presenter Ed Balls on Monday’s instalment of Good Morning Britain. The former politician was speaking to Russ Cook, known online as the Hardest Geezer, who had ran the length of Africa for two charities.

One viewer shared: “@GMB @hardestgeezer Ed Balls, why would you try ruining his moment of glory by mentioning that someone might have done it before him!”

Catherine penned: “What a psychopathic question from Ed Balls. Nasty #gmb.”

Steve simply noted: “Ed puts a damper on Russ’s journey. #GMB.”

Another disgruntled viewer shared: “#gmb Ed Balls is an absolutely terrible presenter, a mumbling bumbling fool who thinks he is funny but really isn’t.”

Tracey fumed: “Ed Balls, he’d p**s on the last fire on earth… what car crash moment. And what a p**t. No need for that at all…”

However, other viewers were more focused on Russ’ phenomenal achievement, with one writing: “An incredible achievement @hardestgeezer #respect.”

While Russ believed he was the first person to run the full length of Africa, Ed challenged him on this which sparked the backlash online.

His claim has been disputed by the World Runners’ Association which is an organisation made up of ultra-endurance athletes who state the record was set in 2010.

However, Russ told presenters Kate Garraway and Ed live from Tunisia that he was overwhelmed by the amount of support he’d received after running across Africa for the past year on a 352-day mission.

He explained: “The thought of not running today is a bit of a mad one as that’s been the case for the past year.”

Russ has raised more than £700,000 for The Running Charity and Sandblast after running 29 miles a day through 16 countries in difficult conditions.

The 27-year-old from West Sussex said he’d struggled with drinking, gambling and his mental health ahead of the challenge.

He faced a myriad of setbacks along the way including being robbed at gunpoint, running with food poisoning and countless health setbacks.

During the final part of the race, Russ was joined by supporters from all over the world before he was reunited with his girlfriend at the finish line.

Good Morning Britain airs on weekdays between 6am and 9am on ITV and ITVX.
