Hosts of Good Morning Britain (GMB), Susanna Reid and Ben Shepherd, were left speechless after Patsy Palmer hung up on their video interview this morning.

Patsy who is currently in Malibu left the interview after noticing the headline that GMB used to cover the segment. 

The interview started off on a bad note as Ben asked, “Did you move to Malibu to get away from people shouting 'Ricky' at you on the street?” Patsy wasn’t impressed by this line of questioning and replied, "Um, not really not just for that reason, maybe one of them. Maybe many.”

Susanna then brought up Prince Harry and Meghan and related their difficulties with privacy to Patsy. However, the actress then noticed the banner that GMB used to describe the interview running along the bottom of the TV screen. ITV had labeled the segment, “Patsy Palmer: Addict to Wellness Guru.”

Unimpressed by the label, Patsy said, "You know what actually, I don't even want to do this interview, because I don't even want to look at what it says at the bottom of that screen. So I am just going to switch off, do a real Piers Morgan, and say it's not okay to have 'Addict to Wellness Guru' on the bottom of the screen."

Susanna quickly said, “Huge apologies for that,” but Patsy announced that she wanted to end the interview. “My issues that I had years ago, that were talked about by me many many years ago, and it's over, so I am not going to talk to you, don't worry about it but I don't really want to talk to you," she said. She then swiftly shut her laptop and ended the interview. 

Fans have been shocked by this interaction and many have taken to social media to share their support for Patsy. One fan said, “Good for Patsy Palmer not tolerating a caption ‘playing’ on addiction and ditching her GMB interview. The person that came up with that caption should hang their head in shame.”

Another fan said, “Wow, that Patsy Palmer interview on GMB was cringe. You could tell she didn’t want to do it from the start, even the way she said morning, she was not feeling it.”

Ben Shepherd stated after the disastrous interview, "That's obviously a quote from Patsy's book as she's talked about in the past, it certainly wasn't our intention to upset Patsy."
