ANT and Dec have called Piers Morgan a “snowflake” for being offended by their joke about him on I’m A Celebrity.
Last night the cheeky Geordie said campmate Kate Garraway was facing a “huge challenge” before adding: “… but before she goes back to work with Piers Morgan, she’s got three weeks in the jungle!”
Today on Good Morning Britain, Piers raged at the pair before making a sarcastic remark about Ant’s return, saying: “It’s so good to have him back. “
Piers saw the dig when he stayed up late to watch I’m A Celeb’s opening episode and admitted he was feeling “on edge” as he appeared on GMB this morning because he’d only had three hours sleep.
He said: “It took Ant and Dec about three seconds (to mention me).”
Not stopping there, the mouthy presenter stormed into a Geordie accent and impersonated Ant’s joke.
In response to The Sun Online’s story about Piers’ on-air moan, the I’m A Celebrity hosts replied: “Snowflake” alongside a laughing face emoji.
Earlier this morning co-host Susanna Reid tried to make Piers feel better about the dig and said: “They couldn’t afford you so they mention you at every opportunity.”
She then addressed Ant and Dec, telling them: “(Piers) very rarely works with Kate Garraway. It’s the rest of us you need to feel sorry for!”
