Good Morning Britain (GMB) welcomed on the show British comedian Al Murray on Tuesday 19th December 2017 and to make him more comfortable GMB had set up a fully functional Christmas themed bar serving Festive Beer where both presenters Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan joined Al with some freshly poured Draught Beer pints.

The section of the show was filmed live and had caught Susanna’s amusing reaction to realising that the pint she had picked up contained real beer.

The whole set up that includes the bar, beer and equipment was all provided by Bexley based business, Mobile Bar Hire. The portable bar hire company were called upon by ITV production team in the early afternoon of Monday 18th December 2017 and even with a busy Christmas Schedule, Mobile bar hire came through.

The bar itself was personalised with a Christmas chalkboard design at the front which adorned the GMB logo and rightly named ‘The Good Morning Britain Bar’. The tap badges were also personalised with a classic Christmas look presenting in crisp writing ‘Festive Brew’.

Company Director, Rags Sandhu along with William Malingan both attended the event and were welcomed into the studio by Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan.

This is not the first time that Mobile Bar Hire worked with ITV, having recently provided a St Patrick’s Day Bar that served Guinness for Good Morning Britain and also providing equipment for Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway as well as customising the infamous drinks globe to serve draught beer on Alan Carr: Chatty Man in previous years.

Al Murray, otherwise known as the Pub Landlord whilst performing his stand up act on stage, has created the Free United Kingdom Party to challenge UKIP leader Nigel Farage in South Thanet during this May’s general election.

Al Murray decided to create the Free United Kingdom Party as he said ‘It seem to me that the UK is ready for a bloke waving a pint around, offering common sense solutions’. The Pub Landlord has even gone as far as to promise to lock up the unemployed, run Greece from Kent County Council and introduce a demilitarized zone between North and South Thanet.

Al Murray is well known for his love of all things British and goes on to state immigration is increasing because ‘this is the greatest country in the world’.

The Pub Landlord, who is often pictured with a pint in his hand, has visited the area recently including Margate where he poked fun at other parties on Twitter with a smart use of the ‘Dreamland’ theme park sign. He also visited nearby Ramsgate Brewrey and tried the local beer.

What do you think of Al Murray running for election in South Thanet? Do you think it is a waste of time and will steal votes from parties that deserve them or will it draw more attention to those who may not vote and now will?
