Rob Brydon couldn’t help but joke that Good Morning Britain was ‘inferior’ to BBC Breakfast after appearing on both shows during the past week.
Speaking via video link on Friday’s BBC Breakfast, the Gavin and Stacey star poked fun at GMB during an interview with presenters Naga Munchetty and Jon Kay.
The actor was on the programme to talk about his support for the campaign to save Park Lane Stables, which was at risk of being shut down if it didn’t raise £1million.
The London-based charity had until 25 February to raise the funds needed to buy its Teddington home and continue to provide its vital services to the community.
The appeal, initially featured on GMB last Thursday, before it reached its target.
However, during today’s BBC Breakfast, Rob featured on the show to chat about the stables finally reaching its goal of £1million.
Speaking about his support he began: ‘I did a few tweets about it and then they asked if I’d…there’s another breakfast news programme on another channel.’
‘No there isn’t,’ Naga interrupted. ‘No there isn’t.’
‘Inconsequential,’ Rob joked. ‘Inferior, unpleasant.
‘Anyway I went on that last week, and if I’m very honest, I went on that, and they were a long way off and in all honesty, I didn’t really think that we’d get to this figure, but I thought it was a noble thing to try and do.’
‘Then when I heard yesterday, I was just bowled over,’ he added. ‘It’s such a wonderful, good news story.’
‘So what’s you’re saying is’ Jon weighed. ‘You went on another programme and they failed to hit the target but when BBC Breakfast yesterday covered this tory. They not only reached their target, they busted right through.’
To which Rob laughed: ‘I think there’s no doubting your journalistic background. I think everybody across the spectrum has done their bit.’
Park Lane Stables manager Nat O’Rourke also appeared on the show where she explained in an emotional interview how ‘overwhelmed’ she felt.
‘I can’t really put it into words,’ she sobbed.
‘We had nothing, we’ve always got nothing and very few people believed in us. I just can’t believe that we’ve made it and we’ve still got a few days to spare.’
BBC Breakfast airs weekdays at 6am on BBC One.
