Piers Morgan put in his place by four-year-old girl as he makes massive on-air blunder

He had to apologise for his mistake

| Updated:

A four-year-old girl got the better of Piers Morgan on today’s Good Morning Britain.

Brave Suzie McCash appeared on the show to talk about how she won a Pride Of Britain award for saving her mum’s life.

She dialed 999 and let paramedics into the house when her mum collapsed at home and stopped breathing.

However, throughout their interview, Piers made the massive mistake of continually calling Suzie by her mum’s name – Rowena.

It was only towards the end of the interview that Piers realised his blunder.

“I keep calling you Rowena!” he said. “That’s your mum’s name! No wonder you looked so confused.”

He added: “I am so sorry, why didn’t anyone tell me? They have all been laughing at me.”

Cheeky Suzie said she was also in on the joke telling an embarrassed Piers she didn’t correct him either as, “it was quite funny actually!”

It wasn’t the first blooper Piers made on today’s show.

Earlier he left his co-host Charlotte Hawkins in fits of giggles today when she tried to read the headlines.

She couldn’t stop laughing after Piers made an inappropriate comment and then joked it could get him into trouble.

It all started as they were discussing participation in reality TV shows along with Susanna Reid.

Both Susanna and Charlotte have appeared on Strictly, while it was recently announced that their weather forecaster Alex Beresford will take part in Dancing On Ice.

Piers said he would never go on such shows, no matter how much money he was offered, and said he’d turned down large sums from I’m A Celeb.

Charlotte said this was a shame.

“Maybe we could have a whip round,” she said.

“Now you’re talking!” Piers quipped before quickly realising it may have been an inappropriate gag in light of the recent sex scandals in Hollywood and Westminster.

“Oops, can’t say that anymore!” he said as he laughed out loud.

Piers and Charlotte then struggled to keep a straight face as they went to the headlines, with Susanna telling Piers, “you can’t say anything anymore!”
