Piers Morgan calls Simon Cowell a liar and says X Factor boss resembles a 'skeleton'

GMB host on Simon's weight loss

Outspoken TV host Piers Morgan has set his sights on X Factor supremo Simon Cowell.

Commenting on Simon's weight loss last year, Piers admitted that he thought "something was going on" and it wasn't just down to his vegan diet.

Now, Piers – who is famously anti-vegan – has taken things one step further and has called Simon a liar and branded him a "skeleton".

The pair were showbiz pals, with Piers attending Simon's birthday parties over the years.

However, once the music mogul reads Piers' latest comments, we expect his next invite will be lost in the post.

Opening up to OK!, Piers was asked if he was tempted to tone up and follow in Simon's shoes.

He is a skeleton. He says he has gone vegan but I don’t believe it for a minute.

"He is f*****g disappearing. He is a skeleton. He says he has gone vegan but I don’t believe it for a minute," Piers blasted.

With his Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid declaring she'd love to see Piers as a "kale-eating, non-drinking, slimmed-down vegan", Piers hit back.

"Never going to happen. I don’t want to be slimmed down. I’m not going to pretend to be something I’m not. I’m afraid what you see is what you get with me, and I’m very happy with it. I look in the mirror every day and think, f***, you look good," he said.

Piers also commented on Susanna's weight after she gained half a stone over Christmas.

She has said she has no desire to lose the 7lb.

"She needed to put weight on, she was getting too thin," Piers commented.

However, while Susanna admits Piers thinks having "more meat on the bones" is a good thing, she revealed she'd never do anything about her weight to please Piers.

The TV hosts have a love/hate relationship. Earlier this week, Piers almost told his co-anchor to "shut up" live on air.
