What did Gemma Collins say?
Gemma took to Twitter to send the presenter the message.
In her tweet, she said: You’re gorgeous as you are @piersmorgan @GMB.”
She followed the message with a kissing emoji.
The flirty comment was a result of yesterday’s incident on GMB.
'I need to be shamed into getting the weight off'
Are you Team Piers or Team Susanna on this subject?

Why did Gemma Collins send the message to Piers?
Piers responded to cricketing pal Kevin Pietersen on yesterday’s show (Tuesday September 8) who called him “fat”.
As a result, Piers admitted that he put on some pounds during lockdown.
“I need to be shamed into losing it,” he told co-presenter Susanna Reid and Dr Hilary Jones.
Yes you fat person, it’s about time chubster.
Susanna then suddenly said: “Yes you fat person, it’s about time chubster.”
Dr Hilary joined in too, responding sarcastically to Piers’ comment that he had a “girl’s name”.
“At least I’m not overweight,” the doc said.
What else did poor Piers have to endure?
The ribbing of Piers didn’t stop there.
Later in the programme, Lorraine Kelly called him “pleasantly plump“.
Piers said hello to Lorraine by saying: “Susanna’s really thrilled she’s trending because she fat-shamed me on national television.”
“Now look,” Lorraine replied. “You have put on a few pounds.
“You’re pleasantly plump.”
Stunned at the comment, Piers said he didn’t want to be cuddly, he wanted to be a “lean, mean machine”.
Don’t worry Piers, The GC has your back.
Piers and Gemma have history
In fact, it’s not the first time Gemma has offered to, ahem, help Piers out.
Last year, Gemma offered to sleep with the married father-of-four.
During his tirade against veganism, he railed against the idea that going vegan improved your sexual performance.
“You could go vegan for a while, couldn’t you?” his fellow host Susanna Reid baited him.
“Who’s gonna try me out?” Piers enquired.
“Me!” declared Gemma, leaving Piers in hysterics.
