Piers Morgan hits back at Ant and Dec on Twitter after swipe at GMB exit

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly poked fun at journalist Piers Morgan in a tweet from the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Twitter account and he had something to say about it.

The dynamic duo tweeted a picture of Piers Morgan storming off the ITV show Good Morning Britain with the caption ‘Naughty Boy everyday #ImACeleb.’

Contestant and DJ Naughty Boy has gained quite the reputation after repeatedly threatening to leave the Gwrych Castle. He said: “At some point you have to do what’s best for you […] I genuinely feel good about it.

"I don’t feel sad, I don’t feel like I wouldn’t be leaving if I knew I haven’t challenged myself, or overcome any fears, because what’s the point of being here in the first place?”

He ended with: “It’ll be sad for me to go, honestly, I love all of you.”

Piers Morgan walked off the Good Morning Britain set in March this year after he was criticised for his harsh remarks against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The presenter said “Okay, I’m done with this” and left the show, saying “Sorry, no, sorry, I can’t do this” as he walked away.

The parallels between Naughty Boy and Piers Morgan resulted in Ant and Dec’s cheeky tweet but Piers already had a brutal response for them, using their football team’s recent 2-0 Premier League loss against Arsenal to come back with.

He quote tweeted their joke and wrote: “More like your goalkeeper picking the ball out of the net today,” referring to Newcastle United.

Fans loved the hilarious exchange and one wrote: “That’s the real reason there’s no I’m A Celebrity tonight, Ant and Dec are still crying after Newcastle lost.”

The show was suspended over the weekend due to extreme weather conditions caused by Storm Arwen that hit Wales.

The weather left ITV bosses with no choice but to cancel the popular nightly show which has been replaced by montage episodes of camp highlights. The contestants have left the camp and are isolated so that the show can continue after the storm passes.

Presenters Ant and Dec also joked about Naughty Boy’s threats to leave the show during a segment where they pretended to read a script. Dec said: “What have you got there?”

“Oh, just the script for tomorrow’s show,” replied Ant.

“Tomorrow night? That hasn’t happened yet, what’s in it?” said Dec.

Ant joked that the script said: “Hi, welcome to I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! where Naughty Boy is thinking about leaving.”
