GMB host Piers Morgan hit back at Lorraine Kelly’s weight jibe on this morning’s show (Monday September 7).
'I need to be shamed into getting the weight off'
Are you Team Piers or Team Susanna on this subject?

What did they say about Piers Morgan and his weight on GMB?
Responding to a tweet from cricket pal Kevin Pietersen about weight loss, Piers admitted that he had put on some timber during lockdown.
“I need to be shamed into losing it,” he admitted.
Susanna took up the invitation, and replied: “Yes you fat person, it’s about time chubster.”
And Hilary soon joined in.
What did Lorraine say that riled Piers?
But Lorraine Kelly picked up the subject when she previewed her show.
On greeting Lorraine, 60, he said: “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.”
How did Piers Morgan respond?
“Sorry?!” a shocked Piers said. “If I said to you that you’re pleasantly plump how would you feel?”
“I’d actually agree with you,” she said. “I’ve put on the COVID pounds.
“I think you’re fine. You’re cuddly.”
Poor Piers said he didn’t want to be cuddly, he wanted to be “a lean, mean machine”.
He suggested: “I’ll come and do a weight loss thing on your programme.”
Piers can’t stay away from trouble
Piers, who came back to work last week after his summer break, has already been in the wars.
One war that has reignited, according to reports, is his long-standing feud with BGT judge David Walliams.
Piers was a front-runner to replace Simon Cowell on the show’s judging panel, after the mogul broke his back.
But reports claimed that David threatened to quit rather than sit next to his nemesis, Piers.
