Good Morning Britain presenter Ranvir Singh desperately tried to maintain the peace when a debate about XL bully dogs descended into chaos.

A heated argument erupted on today’s show when guest Mike Parry stated that the breed should be put down to the anger of owner Kay Taiwo.

This week, XL bullies attacked two boys in separate incidents in Hull and South Wales, while earlier this month a woman in her 50s was mauled to death by two of the dogs.

On GMB today,Mike and Kay began shouting over each other after disagreeing on how to handle the breed, forcing Ranvir to interject and bring their fiery clash to a close.

When GMB cut to Lorraine, presenter Joel Dommett was visibly taken aback by the explosive segment, remarking that it was ‘intense.’

The shouting match erupted when GMB host Richard Madeley asked Mike how he proposed to kill every XL bully in the country.

He replied: ‘The only legal XL bully dogs in the country are registered. We know where they all are and they should go away.’

However, Kay, who brought her pet XL bully into the ITV studio wearing a muzzle, interrupted and claimed many other large dogs made people feel ‘afraid.’

Talking over Kay, Mike raised his voice and said: ‘Why does that dog have jaws that are so strong that they break arms.’

Kay and Mike then continued to shout over each other, prompting Ranvir, 46, to extend both her arms to calm them down.

‘Guys,’ she said. ‘Kay and Mike. Kay and Mike. It’s the debate that we’re going to keep having, isn’t it? But thank you both for coming here, you represent very different points of view.’

Ranvir then cut to Joel who is standing in for Lorraine. Looking shell-shocked, the comedian said: ‘Wow. Woah. That was intense.’

Last week, Angeline Mahal, 50, died after she was mauled in Cornwall Close, Hornchurch.

She was declared dead at the scene and the two registered dogs were seized after being contained in a room.

A relative, who did not wish to be named, said Ms Mahal had the dogs ‘since they were puppies.’

They added: ‘We don’t know the full details yet but I think only one of them attacked her.’

In March, a toddler in Doncaster was mauled by his family’s pet XL Bully and he was taken to hospital.

From February 1, it became a criminal offence to own the XL bully breed in England and Wales without an exemption certificate.

Anyone who owns one of the dogs must have had the animal neutered, have it microchipped and keep it muzzled and on a lead in public, among other restrictions.

The Government’s move to ban XL bullies followed a series of attacks.

According to the Office for National Statistics, there were 16 deaths due to dog attacks in 2023, a sharp rise from preceding years where the number had been in single figures.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV and ITVX.
