Piers clapped back after Alex said he’d never watched Life Stories

Piers hit back after Alex, 40, shocked newsreader Charlotte Hawkins that he’d never watched Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

Good Morning Britain shared the confession on Twitter, where Alex is heard saying: “I’ve never actually watched Piers’ Life Stories before.”

When Charlotte asked whether or not he thought he’d “get away with that”, the weather host smirked: “I don’t see him that much anymore.”

Retweeting the clip, an angry Piers clapped back: “To be fair, I’ve never watched his weather reports.”

It’s not the first time Piers (middle) and Alex (left) have disagreed

Piers’ prime-time show has been on air since 2009, and the star has interviewed everybody from Caitlyn Jenner to Captain Sir Tom Moore and Gemma Collins over the years.

Alex’s bombshell comes just weeks after Piers and Alex clashed on air as the journalist host suggested he was a “bad” weatherman.

Piers introduced Alex’s weather segment by jibing: “He is far from being the greatest weatherman of all time.”

Alex hit back at the time: “Well the great news is that Piers is not here tomorrow, but the bad news is that the weather is pretty testing out there.”

The two men also had a run-in when Piers asked Alex how the weather will be for the Cricket World Cup last summer, to which Alex sniped: “I don’t work for you.”

Prior to that, the Good Morning Britain stars clashed over using a papoose – with Piers branding Alex a “dimwit” after he said he’d wear the baby-carrier.

Alex admitted he’d used one to help out around the house when his son Cruz was young.

Piers also remarked: “If this is the future of mankind then we are dead.”

Producers then launched a Twitter poll urging followers to choose between the pair as Piers ranted: “Thick women would prefer Beresford, dimwit Beresford with his papoose and his tattoos.

“Any woman with a brain would pick me.”

However, Piers was left red-faced after Alex won the poll with 68.4% of the final vote.
