Jack Whitehall has teased Piers Morgan on live TV just days after ridiculing him at the Brit Awards.
The comedian made a joke about the TV presenter’s “voluptuous breasts and four chins” while hosting the Brits last month.
Chatting to Little Mix about Morgan’s spat with the band over a photoshoot they did nude, he quipped during the ceremony: “Voluptuous breasts and four chins – it must have been like looking in the mirror for him.”
Whitehall came face to face with Morgan on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, but did not apologise.
“It was totally unacceptable … but I knew you’ve got a great sense of humour, and you’d take it on your chins,” he joked.
And he added: “You are my favourite pantomime villain … I just can’t help myself. Maybe I’m obsessed with you.”
Morgan joked: “In this country they don’t like you criticising a national treasure”, to which Whitehall shot back: “You are a regional trinket at best.”
Whitehall’s quip about fathers grabbing “scatter cushions” following Little Mix’s raunchy performance sparked the most complaints from this year’s Brits.
“Raunchy – dads up and down the country awkwardly fumbling for a scatter cushion right now,” Whitehall said.
