Piers Morgan has been criticised by Good Morning Britain viewers for supposedly mocking the Chinese language.

Ofcom received over 1,500 complaints after the broadcast in January, which saw Morgan mimic the language during a discussion about the Queen's grandson Peter Phillips appearing in a Chinese TV advert for milk.

ITV issued a statement in response to the complaints, saying that Morgan's comments were "not intended to mock or denigrate Chinese people, their language or accent" but instead "to mock a member of the Royal Family."

Jennifer Gannon and Joe O'Shea discussed this and more in our weekly TV slot.
