Welsh couple whose TV knocked out the entire village’s internet for 18 months delight GMB viewers once again as Piers Morgan keeps his promise to send them a new set

  • Alun and Elaine Rees were unaware their TV knocked out their village internet 
  • Neighbours had poor connectivity every morning at 7am in Aberhosan, Powys 
  • Elaine crocheted through entire interview and left Piers Morgan in hysterics 
  • Piers sent  GMB superfans a brand new television this morning delighting fans 

A Welsh couple who knocked out their village’s internet for 18 months have delighted Good Morning Britain visitors once again after being gifted a new TV by Piers Morgan. 

Pensioners Alun, 67, and Elaine Rees, 63, left viewers in hysterics last week after appearing on the show and telling off presenter Piers, 55, for speaking over co-host Susannah Reid. 

The GMB superfans revealed on the show their old 16′ Bush TV had unwittingly been leaving their neighbours with poor broadband connectivity every morning at 7am in the village of Aberhosan, Powys.

Appearing on the show again today, the couple left viewers ‘smiling inside and out’ after they were gifted a brand new giant television, which Elaine says will be going up on their bedroom wall.

The new television was delivered to their door by Andi Peters, who told a crocheting Elaine: ‘This is it, this is your brand new telly. For you Elaine it means you can see Piers in ultra HD crystal!’

‘It’s going up on my bedroom wall,’ she replied. ‘It is, yeah.’

‘How do you feel about having Piers Morgan life sized in your bedroom?,’ Andi asked Alun, to which he replied: ‘I think I’ll manage.’ 

‘As long as he’s got Susannah,’ Elaine interjected.

Piers tweeted last week to say that the couple were ‘possibly my favourite guests ever’ and said that they would be buying the couple a new TV

When quizzed on the huge reaction to their last interview, Elaine said: ‘To be honest, I started at the top didn’t I, so I didn’t want to give any more interviews because you can’t beat the best can you.’ 

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to praise the couple, with one writing: ‘Alun and Elaine brightening up my morning again’.

‘Made me smile inside and out! What lovely people’, said another. 

A third wrote: ‘Alun and Elaine, I want them to be my nana and grandad #goodmorningbritain’.

The retired couple explained last week that their old £30 TV set, which is in their bedroom, was turned on every morning to watch Good Morning Britain. 

Piers tweeted last week to say that the couple were ‘possibly my favourite guests ever’ and said that they would be buying the couple a new TV. 

Elaine, who loves to watch Piers Morgan in the morning because he ‘makes her laugh’, was crocheting a blanket throughout the interview and showed off another she had crocheted over the back of the sofa behind them.

She explained that, while retired farmer Alun is driving his tractor, she sits in the back and crochets. 

Elaine added: ‘We’ve got a camper van that we actually made up ourselves and I do sit in the passenger seat crocheting when Alun is driving the camper van.’ 

When Piers asked Elaine when he makes her cross, Elaine told him it was when he wouldn’t let co-host Susanna talk, to which Susanna responded with a round of applause. 

Piers said: ‘By the way, pretty rich coming from you given Alun doesn’t talk either. I haven’t seen him get a word in.’
