Simpson went on to say that the primary character “is me and isn’t.”
During the show, Simpson stated that over 80% of the events discussed in his recent book happened to him or others close to him while working as foreign journalists. Simpson went on to say that the primary character “is me and isn’t.”
When Madeley questioned if the manslaughter portrayed in the book was based on a true storey, Simpson replied, “It was me in Beirut a few years ago, and I was forced to kneel down.”
“I felt my dying moment had arrived when a man shoved a gun in the back of my neck and pressed the trigger. “And then everyone laughed, and I got up and brushed off my knees, thinking, ‘I have to reassert myself here,’” she said.
“So I said to the person who fired the gun, or didn’t shoot the pistol, ‘Do you know what? You’re an absolute [expletive]’.” ‘You’re OK, John.’ After recognising his error, Simpson raised his hands and closed his lips, and he apologised right away. “I’m also in trouble now for saying that on breakfast television,” Garraway said.“We won’t offer you a fake execution,” she continued. You’re OK, John; you’re fine.” She also apologised to the audience.
