It's all for a good cause!

| Updated:

Piers Morgan has graciously taken insults in his stride as Channel 4 hurled abuse at him in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.

Channel 4’s annual charity drive took a hilarious turn on social media when the broadcaster promised people a variety of perks if they donated money to the cause.

One of the pledges was that they would insult the Good Morning Britain host on Twitter for a £50 donation.

And they delivered, tweeting him: “Dear @PiersMorgan. Hope you’re having a wonderful morning. Why don’t you go and [expletive] yourself. #SU2CRewards.”

Piers seemed to find their tweet amusing and replied: “For the record, @Channel4 – if I could, I would.”

And Channel 4’s insults didn’t stop there as they tweeted: “Dear @PiersMorgan. Unfortunately our lawyers wouldn’t allow us to say you’re the single biggest [expletive] in the history of human civilisation.

“But you’re in the top 1. #SU2CRewards.”

Piers was praised by fans for his witty retort to Channel 4, with one writing: “I’m not a fan, Piers, but fair play this time.”

Channel 4 retweeted a post from an impressed follower, who had said: “Social media has reached a certain level – just saw this tweet from @Channel4 sent to @piersmorgan and I couldn’t decide whether their security had been compromised or if they were being the voice of the people.

“Then I read it was for @StandUp2C and made a donation! #SU2C.”

The tweet read: “One hour left to ask for your #SU2CRewards. Thanks to everyone who’s joined in and donated (and our very good sport @PiersMorgan!).

“Keep donating as we get ready for #StandUpToCancer, tonight from 7pm.”

Piers joked: “Thanks. I think you’re a bunch of [expletive].”
