This Morning viewers blast 'cringey' Peaky Blinders segment 'Looks like a 1940s binman!'


On Friday’s This Morning, ITV viewers were treated to a Peaky Blinders fashion segment in light of the sixth and final season airing on BBC One. However, viewers were left feeling in hysterics when host Dermot decided to wear a floor-length black coat, styled to look like the Brummy gang leader Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy). 

The ITV channel switched to a segment outside of the studio and as they brought it back to the hosts, the colour of the screen looked slightly off with a hue of grey. 

Appearing alongside a fashion expert, who went through some of the show’s most iconic styles, Alison Hammond and Dermot watched on. 

Fans on social media shared their thoughts after on Dermot’s new attire as he sported an oversized jacket that covered his entire body while others simply joked about the segment itself. 

Taking to Twitter, @johnlawton1974 remarked:  “#ThisMorning Coat?! He needs a new T shirt that fits!!” (sic)

While @YTVChase chuckled: “Hahaha. Dressed him like a 1940’s bin man.  #thismorning.” (sic)

@JadeDonnelly11 jested: “Dermot doesn’t look like a peaky blinder in that coat, he looks like a passenger on the titanic #ThisMorning.”

@MadameMing agreed: “As much as I love Peaky Blinders, the sight of chavs at the races dressed up like this is hilarious! #ThisMorning.”

@jandixonjazz quipped: Is Dermot wearing half of his nans twin set ? #thismorning.” (sic)

Meanwhile, some members of the audience were quite pleased about the feature and said the look was a knockout. 

@mather_lynn beamed: “#ThisMorning Loving the Peaky Blinders look…the models rocked it.”

@TaniaWren gushed: “The Peaky Blinders look is very sexy!! #ThisMorning.”

When offered the jacket by the stylist, Dermot said: “So this is a blazer, waistcoat and suit. 

“It’s a couple of hundred quid but it’s a good investment, right?”

Dermot put the jacket on when the clothing specialist went on to remark: “It’s Cheltenham races for this week and he’d look fine in that.”

Alison looked at her co-star and said: “You look good in that.”

The stylist moved on to the shoes and said: “They’re handsome, sort of can-do, [they’re] proper man boots.

“Put the [shoes] with jeans and it would also function.”
