Piers Morgan is still smarting after This Morning won their fourth TV Choice award in a row.
The Good Morning Britain presenter labelled the show’s team ‘snivelling little b******s’ in an expletive-filled rant at the event in London on Monday night.
Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby responded to his outburst on their show, dedicating their award to Piers.
Phil said: ‘So Piers Morgan, whose middle names are spittle and bile, if you want to pop in and hold it Piers, then we’ll leave it here for you so you can maybe come in and have your picture taken with it. We love you Piers.’
Piers fired back at Schofe with a racy joke on Wednesday morning’s show, saying: ‘Of all the offers I’ve had to pop in and hold it, from Phillip Schofield, that ain’t happening.’
The newsreader cackled as his co-host Susanna Reid, and members of the crew in the studio, burst out laughing.
Piers added: ‘I’m not popping in and I’m not holding it, Phillip.
‘I only want us to win so that we can mimic them when they won the other night.’
Susanna replied: ‘That will never ever, ever, ever happen.’
‘It will because we’ll be so excited at finally winning one,’ Piers said.
We can’t wait to hear what Phil has to say to that.
Piers was at the TV Choice Awards to present Lorraine Kelly with a trophy and used the moment to tear strips off This Morning.
He began: ‘Love you so much. Actually I don’t love you, I hate you, you snivelling little b*****ds. Every time we come to these things I am told it’s our time.’
To uproarious laughter, he added: ‘It’s never our time, it’s always their time, f**k you and f**k your awards.’
The best of British telly was honoured on the night with big successes for Line of Duty.
The crime drama, starring Martin Compston and Vicky McClure, scooped the gong for best drama series, while star Adrian Dunbar was named best actor for his role as Superintendent Ted Hastings.
He saw off competition from the likes of Bodyguard’s Richard Madden and Poldark star Aidan Turner.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
