Good Morning Britain's Richard Madeley slammed by furious fans as he 'gives away' plot of hit BBC show and 'ruins it' | The Sun

GOOD Morning Britain host Richard Madeley was called out by furious TV fans for "giving away" spoilers to a hit BBC show.

The ITV anchor, 67, came under fire during a chat with veteran actress Anne Reid, 88.

The pair were having a natter about her chilling BBC series The Sixth Commandment, in which she plays the role of Ann Moore-Martin, on Wednesday's Good Morning Britain.

Richard had made it clear throughout the interview how much of a fan he is of the drama – before going on to spill the secrets of the plotline.

Yet for fans who haven't got around to watching the gripping series – which is based on real events which resulted in murder – there was little left to learn after his monologue.

One took to X formerly known as Twitter, to muse: "If you haven’t seen the sixth commandment Madeley gave it all away instead of letting Anne Reid speak."

Another raged: "Richard Madeley telling the whole plot of the show I won't bother watching it now."

A fan then added: "Anne Reid is blooming lovely! If only Richard would let her speak. I’m sure she even eye rolled him at one point."

One then pleaded: "Stop butting in Richard."

Recently, fans were all left saying the same thing about the "disturbing" drama.

The four-part series has an all-star cast including Timothy Spall, Dame Sheila Hancock and Èanna Hardwicke.

The Sixth Commandment is based on real events involving author Peter Farquhar, who was killed by Benjamin Field, with the TV adaptation penned by screenwriter Sarah Phelps.

Sarah also has writing credits on popular thrillers such as A Very British Scandal, Dublin Murders and The ABC Murders.

In 2015, Benjamin fabricated a fake relationship with Peter to take advantage of him and eventually applied the same tactics to his neighbour Ann Moore-Martin.

Timothy plays Peter in the TV adaptation, with Anne as Ann and Èanna as Benjamin.

Fans of the show found the first episode to be difficult viewing due to the subject matter.

A live tweeter during the first episode found it hard to stomach and said: "Am watching the sixth commandment it’s horrifying."

All four episodes of The Sixth Commandment are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
