Good Morning Britain guest Mike Parry wasted no time in slating people who enjoy caravan holidays as he joined Friday’s programme, leaving Alex Beresford no choice but to intervene.
The radio presenter insisted he wasn’t a ‘snob’ multiple times despite saying that staying in a mobile home was worse than prison.
‘They are an eyesore and I don’t think they look good under any circumstances,’ Mike began. ‘Caravans went out of fashion in 1952.’
‘That’s absolute nonsense,’ Alex interjected.
‘When we got out of the second world war, my parents didn’t have any money to take us anywhere on holiday except Butlins,’ Mike continued. ‘They took us in a caravan to Anglesey. I’ve never had a more miserable existence in my life.’
Without missing a beat, he then launched into an impassioned rant against caravans.

‘I don’t understand how a human being can exist in a little tin can,’ he raged. ;Four human beings in a tin can, because that’s about what it is, it’s like hamsters in a sandwich bin. It’s like people crushing themselves together in a situation that you wouldn’t even welcome if you were in jail.
‘I just don’t understand the mentality of caravaners because caravaners seem to want to all crush together.’

He added that caravaners have this ‘urge’ to seem to want to try and convince everybody that they’re enjoying themselves.
At this point, Alex was forced to interrupt Mike and demanded that he stopped to take a breath.
Meanwhile, 80s popstar Sonia Evans said that going on a caravan holiday is about bonding and is a good option seeing as travelling abroad is currently restricted.
Viewers were outraged by Mike’s ‘snobbery’ and called him out on social media.
‘Imagine being this angry about a caravan,’ wrote one, while another penned: ‘Can I just say that caravan holidays are amazing, it makes the best family memories ever. Mr grumpy needs to cheer up and stay at home.’
Never a dull moment on daytime television, ey?
