BBC Breakfast viewers in an uproar over Royal Wedding coverage: ‘Report some actual news!’
BBC BREAKFAST viewers have expressed their frustration at the news channel for prioritizing coverage of the Royal Wedding, which takes place tomorrow at midday.
Presented by Steph McGovern, this morning’s BBC Breakfast show received criticism from viewers over the choice of content being aired.
With the Royal Wedding taking place tomorrow, the BBC Breakfastensured that viewers were updated with every detail.
Frustrated, several viewers showed their annoyance on Twitter: “Non-stop coverage of the #RoyalWedding on @BBCBreakfast this morning.”
“Thankfully, there’s no other news happening at all. #bbcbreakfast” one wrote.
Another commented: “REPORT SOME ACTUAL BL***Y NEWS! #bbcbreakfast #RoyalWedding.”
The amount of Royal Wedding coverage the BBC Breakfast show reported, drove viewers to change channels in hope of watching the actual news.
One viewer said: “#bbcbreakfast turned to foreign channels to get some actual NEWS not just #royalwedding nonsense.”
Viewers even asked the breakfast show to “suggest an alternative channel to watch the morning which has some coverage of news?”.
It wasn’t going well for the show, especially as a live report was cut offhalf-way through an interview.
Naga Munchetty, was reporting from the grounds of Windsor Castle andhanded over to John Maguire who was live on the streets of Windsor town.
After speaking to TMZ Reporter Sean Mandell about the latest on Meghan Markle’s father – Thomas Markle, live coverage stopped and instead ablank blue screen replaced the image.
Immediately coverage switched back to Steph in the studio and she was forced to apologise for the transmission loss.
“Oh and unfortunately we’ve lost the line there to John I’m sure we will be able to get back there,” she noted.
But ever the professional, she continued, explaining: “We’ve got plenty of the team down there, and I’m sure we can find someone. Carol’s on Windsor’s long walk for us this morning.
“Carol you never let us down do you?”
Viewers were pleased however, and expressed their happiness that the Royal Wedding coverage was cut short.
Taking to Twitter, one said: “#bbcbreakfast have lost the line…thank god for that hopefully some wise person has cut the cable….#RoyalWedding #yawn.”
Another commented: “Ohhhhh nooooo… they lost the line to Windsor… #bbcbreakfast #royalwedding … Oh. Carol.”
“Shame we lost a connection. Not #BBCBreakfast,” said one user.
The Royal Wedding of Meghan Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33 will take place on Saturday 19 May.
The ceremony will commence at midday and is being held in St. George’s chapel at Windsor Castle.
