Jeremy is never far away from controversy.

Earlier this year, Piers Morgan has announced that the "four-year ceasefire" in his long-running feud with Jeremy had been breached thanks to a jibe the presenter made about him on Who Wants To Be Millionaire?

In a column for the Mail On Sunday's Eventmagazine, the Good Morning Britain host wryly admitted the pair have been enjoying a form of "simmering peace" in recent years.

Piers admitted the comment has made his blood boil - even though he only found out about it via Twitter, joking that he "doesn't watch anything Clarkson does – on medical advice".
