Patsy Palmer dropped out of an interview with Good Morning Britain after he was billed for an “addict to wellness guru” bill

The former EastEnders actress said she was doing a “Piers Morgan” after seeing her featured on the commercial that appeared on the screen under her name

Palmer was seen live at her breakfast in Malibu, California on the breakfast show via Zoom

From the start of the chat, the 48-year-old appeared nervous – and as parallels were drawn between her move to the US and that of Prince Harry and Meghan, the actress leaned over to read the written details on screen / p>

Palmer held her dog Boo on her lap and replied to Susanna Reid’s first question about whether she had more privacy now: “Yes, I think you do” before she said: “You know what actually, I don’t even me want to do this interview because I don’t even want to see what’s at the bottom of the screen

“So I’m just going to shut down and do a real Piers Morgan and just say it’s not okay to have” from addict to wellness guru “at the bottom of the screen”

Palmer added that the addiction problems “were discussed by me many, many years ago and it is over” in relation to parts of her 2007 autobiography, All Of Me, in which she talked about struggles with alcohol and drugs / p>

Both Reid and co-host Ben Shephard quickly apologized, saying it was never their intention to upset them

However, it was too late for Palmer, who abruptly shut down her laptop, broke the link and ended the interview

Reid added, “I had no idea this was showing on the screen Well that’s a terrible shame We apologize to Patsy, she has the right not to do the interview and we are moving on”

The hosts went on to say they were hoping to talk about their “journey” from staying in rehab to launching their own wellness brand

The actress, who recently appeared on ITV reality show The Masked Singer, shared a photo on Instagram prior to the interview saying she was a “morning person” and stayed up for the chat (which due to the US) time difference was late in the evening) was tough

She later posted an Instagram story telling fans, “I haven’t written a book in 20 years,” reminding them that “people change”

Palmer’s quick exit echoes that of former GMB host Morgan, who left without a script earlier this month after complaining about disagreement with live on air

The 55-year-old snorted during a heated discussion with weather host Alex Beresford from the set, after previously commenting that he did not believe what the Duchess of Sussex said during her much-discussed interview with Oprah Winfrey

Morgan was later criticized by Mind, a mental health charity, for saying they were “disappointed and concerned” with the way he spoke about the Duchess’ mental health

Meghan has complained to Ofcom about Morgan’s words since the TV watchdog was already investigating his comments after breaking more than 41Had received 000 complaints from members of the public
