Piers Morgan on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?: Star praised for donating own money

The banter between these two was off the scale

| Updated:

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? viewers praised Piers Morgan as he appeared on the show last night.

The Good Morning Britain host buried the hatchet with rival Jeremy Clarkson after their feud years ago.

And viewers hailed Piers, 55, after he crashed out early but vowed to donate £15,000 to his chosen charity.

Which is just as well, because Jeremy couldn’t resist having a pop at him.

What happened with Jeremy Clarkson and Piers Morgan on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Appearing alongside Jordan Banjo on the celebrity special, Piers crashed out early when he failed to get a question about Formula 1 right.

And, after trying his GMB co-host Susanna Reid as a ‘phone a friend’, it wasn’t long before Jeremy began to gloat.

He first introduced Piers as “a simply awful human being”.

“You’ve humiliated yourself,” chuckled Jeremy. “And you’ve cost yourself £15,000.”

But Jeremy then said Piers was going to make up the difference and donate the £15,000 out of his own pocket to his charity.

Piers crashing out early was the gift that kept on giving.

“I’m trying to think of a positive…” Jeremy said.

You were brave to come on and I was brave to have you.

“You did make it to £4,000 all on your own, then everybody else helped you the rest of the way.

“[You] were brave to come on and I was brave to have you.”
