Watch: Piers Morgan and Pamela Anderson debate benefits of veganism
Pamela Anderson has hit back at Piers Morgan’s criticisms of vegans, claiming they make better lovers in a cheeky exchange.
Good Morning Britain host Morgan has made no secret of his disdain for veganism in the past, including a memorable run-in with a Greggs vegan sausage roll, so when he spotted a tweet from ex-Baywatch star Anderson claiming vegans were better in bed, he couldn’t resist inviting her on the breakfast show.
But Anderson gave as good as she got, insisting her 30 years on a plant-based diet were all the proof she needed that vegans had a better sex life.
Asked about the subject, she said: “That’s what I hear. I’m vegan, I’m fairly confident in that statement.“
When Morgan pressed her about whether it had improved her sex life, she added: “Yes, absolutely, but I think I’ve always had a lot of fun in that department.”
Anderson, a vocal promoter of veganism, had tweeted that “cholesterol in meat, eggs and dairy causes hardening of the arteries (and not much else)”.
Morgan told her: “The jury’s out, Pamela. I did offer on Twitter to test this theory, Pamela, but I notice you didn’t respond to my intrigue.”
His co-host Susanna Reid cringed as she replied: “No, because that was really sleazy.”
But Anderson laughed it off, saying: “Typical Piers!”
Anderson also spoke about her battle to get her friend Julian Assange pardoned in the final days of Donald Trump’s presidency.
She said: “I know that he is debating and we will see what happens… I hope he makes that decision.
“That could add a positive to his legacy. Obviously he is against fake news, and WikiLeaks is against fake news.”
She added: “I believe Trump is going to pardon him. If that doesn’t happen then we talk to the Biden camp.”
