Am I missing something? I just watched the interview on iPlayer and it seemed, for the most part, like any other Breakfast celebrity interview - a light, genial chat.
The only awkward moment seemed to be when Louise asked him about Zayn from 1 Direction and he said he wasn't ready to discuss it, and the following moment when Louis said "Wow, you're ticking them off aren't you? Trauma, 1D...".
I know there's probably a lot of hostility out there towards Dan and Louise after that interview but it didn't strike me as anything untoward. The references to the deaths of his mother and sister were fleeting; it didn't strike me as Dan and Louise pressing him on the matter or asking him specifically about it.
I understand he has the right to be offended by the line they took but it just didn't seem offensive to me. If anything, Dan and Louise were really talking him up pre and post interview and seemed delighted to have him there. And you can see Louis smiling and shaking their hands as they throw to the regional news at the end of the interview.
A bit bizarre to me.
