A young lad who went viral on Good Morning Britain after he opened his A-Levels grades has responded after the morning show received a backlash.
Dylan Fowler took part in the programme’s yearly tradition of having students open their results live on TV, but viewers branded this as embarrassing as he had to share how he did, and he achieved two Ds and a C.
However, the teenager did not seem to mind and defended GMB on Twitter, as he shared an article criticising the show and posted the caption: “It’s really not that deep haha.”

His social media page indicates that he is enjoying this viral fame, as he later shared a photo of himself at a nightclub and wrote: “Celebrating the DDC.”
People in the comments were supportive of Fowler and the way he handled himself, along with reassuring him not to worry.

One person replied: “Honestly never seen one person open their results on TV and not be what they’re after!! Thought it was a set up to be honest. Fair play to you for doing it. Good luck, results are definitely not everything.”
“Mate respect to you for having the b***ocks to open your results on live TV most would have lost their nerve and bottled it chin up bro,’ added another.
A third person wrote: “That’s the spirit lad, too many moaners out there. Enjoy the next part of your journey in life. With your attitude, you will go far.”
Despite the grades, Fowler did reveal before opening his results that he already had an unconditional offer from a university, so at least he has that next chapter to look forward to.
