PIERS Morgan is notorious for winding his guests up, but this time – his co-host Susanna Reid has been in the firing line.
During a segment on this morning’s Good Morning Britain, Piers told Susanna she was ‘jealous’ that he had hung-out with 25-year-old pop-star, Ariana Grande.
Piers, 53, and Ariana, 25, have had a well-documented feud over Twitter after the breakfast host made comments about Little Mix and accused them of using ‘sex to sell records.’
And last month, the pair had an awkward and unexpected encounter at an LA restaurant where Ariana offered peace over a bottle of red.
Talking of their meeting on this morning’s show, Piers sarcastically ‘praised’ the young pop-star on her choice of wine, with Susanna quick to point out that maybe Ariana had instead got Piers now ‘twisted round her little finger’.
Having none of it, Piers responded: “You just didn’t like me hanging out with a younger brunette. It’s written all over your jealous, seething little face.”
Following the break, a disgruntled Susanna asked Piers if he was ‘texting Ariana again’, to which she added: “Oh, I’m so jealous.’
Never one to take an attack lying down, Piers fiercely told Susanna: “You look a bit like Ariana actually. A bit like her mum.”
Gasps could be heard around the studio as co-presenter Charlotte Hawkins shouted out: “Ouch!”.
As always, Susanna took the comments in her stride and told Piers: “Well, that makes sense as I’m old enough to be her mum. I don’t find that insulting.”
Yesterday, Piers leapt to the defence of Susannah after one guest appeared to call her an “idiot”.
Piers roared “How dare you?” after guest Eric Guster interrupted her to say: “You’re an idiot, but that’s neither here nor there.”
A shocked Susanna, 48, who was trying to referee a political debate about Donald Trump, replied: “I am?”
Piers said: “How dare you call Susanna Reid an idiot, Eric.”
The breakfast show has been full of shocks already this week with Piers airing the first clip of Mel B admitting to having sex with Geri Halliwell on the show.
The TV host aired footage of his exclusive – with Mel C seen screaming from the audience.
