Piers Morgan trolled by his seven-year-old daughter Elise over appearance

She called him a "pig"

Whether you like him or not, Piers Morgan is still rather good fun to watch on Good Morning Britain, however, it seems as though his seven-year-old daughter, Elise, would be much more amusing to have on the show.

This morning featured a brilliant moment on GMB - a moment which might go down in the show's history.

It came when Piers received an email from his daughter in which she called him "pig" and she claimed that he "looked terrible".

Piers looked down at his phone and then revealed: "I just got a lovely charming message from my seven-year-old daughter Elise, who watches the programme. Morning Elise!

"She just sent me a lovely email saying, 'Hi Pig, you look terrible'."

If you're wondering why I'm like I am, it's because that's my home life. That's my own daughter.

Piers didn't look that impressed with his daughter's comments, yet his co-host Susanna Reid and others in the studio couldn't stop giggling.

Piers then said: "If you're wondering why I'm like I am, it's because that's my home life. That's my own daughter.

He then repeated the email she sent him: "Hi Pig, you look terrible," with a downcast face.

Piers finished off by looking directly into the camera and addressing his daughter, saying: "Elise, please, some respect."

This came after Piers dismissed claims that the trolling the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, receives is racist and insisted he gets more abuse online.

The Good Morning Britain host called the royal out for her "hypocrisy" in using private jets and dismissed claims her detractors are being racist.

Piers fumed: "[Meghan] wants to be a celebrity princess, rather like Angelina Jolie would do it. Here's the bottom line: you can't be political and be a senior member of the royal family, there is too much hypocrisy that goes with that position."

He then addressed the abuse Meghan receives on social media, ranting: "I'm sorry, everyone gets abuse online. I get it 10 times worse than she does, I'm sorry.

"The other thing, this idea that it all stems from racism is nonsense. Media coverage has been negative because they persistently, last year, have been ranked hypocrites," he finished.
