Piers Morgan’s ‘feud’ with Ant and Dec escalates as they brand him ‘snowflake’ after dig on I'm A Celebrity

They had a bit of banter on Twitter

TV's Piers Morgan has continued his 'feud' with Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly after they made a dig about him on I'm A Celebrity.

During Sunday night's launch episode, the duo couldn't resist poking fun at Piers when they introduced his Good Morning Britain co-star Kate Garraway as a campmate.

Dec told viewers that Kate would be facing the "most harrowing ordeal of her entire life" to which Ant quipped: "But before she goes back to work with Piers Morgan, she's got three weeks in the jungle!"

Piers then hit back on Monday's Good Morning Britain, saying: "It took Ant and Dec about three seconds (to mention me)."

Well our dads are bigger than your dad. Grow up you big wally!

Putting on a Geordie accent, Piers said: "It's so good to have him [Ant] back."

Ant and Dec responded to Piers' comments on Twitter, simply writing on their joint Twitter account: "Snowflake," followed by a laughing face emoji.

Piers responded: "At least I have my own Twitter account & don't have to share one with my mate."

The presenting duo then hit back: "Oh yeah? Well our dads are bigger than your dad. Grow up you big wally!"

Piers tweeted: "a) They’re not. b) I really wouldn’t play the growth card..."

Piers also took a swipe at the pair's Twitter following, writing: "CONUNDRUM OF THE DAY: My current follower count: 6.91 million.

"@antanddec's current follower count: 6.75 million, or 3.37m each.

"If they're 'national treasures' why am I twice as popular as either of them?"
