Judge Rinder lashes out at claimant after he interrupts him in tense trial

Judge Robert Rinder lost it in a courtroom drama over a tiling job gone wrong on Monday.

The TV barrister, 42, exploded at a claimant who dared to interrupt him.

Robert Rinder presided over a court case involving Francesco and Henry.

The claimant, Francesco, claimed he hired Henry to complete a DIY tiling job which was so disastrous it caused a gas leak.

But Henry denied causing any damage and even went as far as counter-suing Francesco for an outstanding payment for the work he said he completed.

Things turned sour when Francesco began speaking unprompted – causing Judge Rinder to explode.

“Be quiet!” he told the claimant.

But Francesco didn’t listen and instead continued talking.

He interrupted: “He was blind because he was saying he didn’t search. You can see the gas pipe.”

Judge Rinder yelled at Francesco: “You listen to me!” and he promptly shut up.

It appears the barrister wasn’t swayed by his rude antics, because he did close the case in Francesco’s favour.

He was awarded £1,210 by Judge Rinder, while Henry’s counter-sue attempt was thrown out.

Though the judge was quick to point out that, unlike Francesco, Henry at least got to leave with his reputation intact.

Rumours have circulated recently that Judge Rinder could be set to replace Piers Morgan on GMB after his fiery exit following a row with weather presenter Alex Beresford over his controversial comments regarding Meghan Markle.

He has refused to rule out the possibility and is one of the bookies’ favourites for a replacement.

Robert said on the Lorraine show: “It would be a very interesting [job] indeed, but I’m not sure whether I could endure the wave of Twitter hate.

“Although, that being said, anyone on Twitter having residual energy to write mean things about anybody is not a happy human being,” he continued.

He added that he feared there would be a “nuclear reaction” and said: “As you know I don’t do nonsense of any sort.”

Robert is already good friends with GMB host Susanna Reid, meaning the pair could make a good match if he were to take up Piers’ old seat.

An insider told The Sun: “The dynamic between the two presenters would be instant because they have been good friends for years – even going on holiday together.”

He has hosted his eponymous show Judge Rinder for a whopping eight seasons and broke down in tears following a performance of Be Our Guest on ITV’s All-Star Musicals last weekend.
