Piers Morgan has expressed his support for Huw Edwards, calling him a “stand-up guy,” after the newsreader was identified as the presenter involved in the scandal. Huw’s wife revealed that he is currently dealing with serious mental health issues and is receiving inpatient hospital care. She also disclosed that he is the BBC presenter facing allegations related to payments for sexually explicit images.

Speaking on his Talk TV show, Piers began by acknowledging Huw’s authority and trustworthiness as a news anchor, stating that audiences have always held him in high regard. Piers, who personally knows Huw, expressed shock at the news and recognized the impact it must have on his family and the millions of people who watch him on the news each night. He also acknowledged the impact on Huw’s colleagues at the BBC.

Piers highlighted the unsustainable nature of the speculation surrounding the scandal and how it unfairly affected other BBC presenters who were mistakenly linked to the allegations on social media. He noted that viewers would have noticed Huw’s sudden absence from the nightly news bulletins. Piers acknowledged that Huw is now in a serious situation and likely feels like he is losing everything.

Previously, Piers had discussed the situation, questioning whether it would be wise for the presenter involved to come forward and address the allegations openly if there is nothing to hide. He suggested that sharing the truth, without necessarily defending oneself, could provide clarity and prevent further damage.

A public relations and crisis consultant, Mark Borkowski, praised Huw Edwards’ wife, Vicky Flind, for taking control of the situation and addressing the issue. He emphasized the importance of a thorough examination of the facts. Borkowski commented on the enduring presence of shame in our society and how it impacts individuals, applauding Vicky for confronting this aspect. He also acknowledged the pressures faced by public figures, highlighting the challenges and loneliness often associated with fame.

The situation surrounding Huw Edwards continues to unfold, with Piers Morgan lending support and discussions around mental health taking center stage.
