The broadcaster has been accused of “ mocking Chinese people ” and subsequently racism after he attempted to imitate the narrator of a Chinese TV advert for milk . During the latest Good Morning Britain, Piers and Susanna Reid discussed Peter Phillips’ – the eldest grandchild of the Queen and Prince Philip – who recently appeared in the Asian advert.
After the advert was shown, Piers attempted to repeat what was said, making noises in what was apparently an imitation of the Chinese brand’s name.
Co-host Susanna was left exasperated, covering her face with her hand, looking at the desk below her.
“ I don’t know the Chinese for ‘I only drink …’, what’s it called? ”He said.
He then quickly requested the advert be shown again, after which he again made an attempt at imitating the brand’s name.
