Paul Brand locked horns with National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers’ boss Mick Lynch as he made his Good Morning Britain hosting debut. However, Mr Lynch soon slapped down the ITV journalist after he probed him about his salary live on air. The union boss appeared on the programme as 40,000 Network Rail workers walk out in another planned strike for better pay.

Paul asked the 60-year-old: “What support are you giving members because you are on a six-figure salary, I don’t want to demonise you for that as there are politicians on a six-figure salary.”

Mr Lynch quickly slapped Paul down by assuring him he was not on a six-figure salary, adding: “I’m not on a six-figure salary, that is completely untrue.”

The pair spoke over each other as Paul suggested Mick was on “significantly more” money than the members of the union he represents.
