Boris Johnson’s ex flame Petronella Wyatt slammed Good Morning Britain host Richard Madeley as ‘presumptuous’ as he opened up a rather intimate line of questioning live on-air.

Petronella appeared on the programme to discuss the recent vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister, but Richard was keen to question her on the particulars of their love affair.

They spent four years together, and Richard was desperate to find out more about it, despite Petronella’s discomfort.

One line of questioning involved him wondering if she’d get back together with the PM if they were both single.

Richard asked: “If he wasn’t married, if he was single, and if you weren’t going out with anyone, could you see yourselves getting back together?”

“I’m not going to answer that,” Petronella clapped back. “I could be engaged, I could… I’m not going to answer that.”

Resigning himself, Richard then said: “You don’t have to answer it.”

Things got even icier as he pressed: "You were together for four years, presumably in that period you loved him…."

Petronella interjected: "You're very presumptuous, Richard!" as Richard argued: "Well you were together for four years, I assume you weren't with him because you hated him! It's not presumptuous, it's common sense!"

Thankfully the pair shared a giggle before Richard continued with his questioning – making it clear it was all in good fun.

And Richard wasn't deterred as he pushed: "Two questions, really. One, what would you say is most loveable about Boris, and two, what did you think the day you heard he was Prime Minister?

"Did you think it would all end in tears?"

Petronella responded: "Erm… he's instinctively good natured. And he's funny, he's witty. He's well read. And he's got charm – those are all loveable qualities."

Viewers were quick to point out how 'awkward' the interview was on social media, with one Twitter user writing: "This interview with Boris’ ex girlfriend Petronella Wyatt on #GMB is a lot awkward!"

"@BorisJohnson's ex on @GMB looking very awkward… like perhaps she regrets saying yes to the interview…" another followed up.

As a third viewer posted: "That interview was absolute cringe & gave zero insight in to anything currently happening. An ex girlfriend doesn't need to be interviewed for everyone to realise #BorisJohnson is useless!"

GMB airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
