'People watch this show to listen to me, not you': Piers Morgan and Dancing On Ice star Alex Beresford engage in a furious war of words on Good Morning Britain

He's known for being fairly outspoken when it comes to his opinions, so it perhaps comes as little surprise that Piers Morgan had a little spat on Monday. 

The 52-year-old was talking to Good Morning Britain weatherman Alex Beresford about his performance on Dancing On Ice and talking about the moment he stumbled. 

Piers said: 'We will have to call you 'Bumbling Beresford, where is the bit where you nearly fell on the ice?'

Alex, 37, had already mocked Piers for his appearance on the US Apprentice, saying: 'You’re good at shows where you sit behind a desk.'

Piers immediately snapped back: 'No, The Apprentice was doing very successful business challenges all over New York.

'People in music history, Gene Simmons, Lennox Lewis a world heavyweight boxing champion, they were all incredibly smart people and I killed them all.'

Defending his stumbling appearance on the ice, Alex said: 'Well it is quite hard feeding someone through your legs, particularly when you are on the ice.'

Piers then questioned why the show's judges always seem to suggest that the contestants should 'bring it,' whenever they dish out advice.

'Bring it. What does that even mean? Surely everyone is "bringing it"'

'Well you don't want to "bring it" too early,' Alex responded. 'You need to leave something in your locker.' 

'You want to have a slow rise, then a dramatic fall,' Piers teased. 

Alex then read the weather forecast but stumbled over the day's temperature, which Piers was rather delighted by.

He said: 'Your forecast is like your ice-skating. Bumbling. Why don't you bring it when it comes to your next forecast? Bring it, yeah. Whatever’s left in that talent locker.'

Alex sighed and snapped back: 'Why don't you talk less and I'll bring it?'

Piers retorted: 'People watch this show to listen to me, not to you.'

Susanna Reid cut in: 'I'm glad I'm sitting in between you two.'

Whoops! Alex then read the weather forecast but stumbled over the day's temperature, which Piers was rather delighted by
