PIERS Morgan has reignited his feud with fellow broadcaster Dan Walker after he told him to ‘grow a pair’ on Twitter.
The presenter made the pointed comment after he had been embroiled in a fiery row with vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi MP, who refused to condemn health minister Matt Hancock.

The health secretary was found to have “acted unlawfully” when giving out PPE contracts in a court ruling last week.
He fumed: “It is completely unacceptable that he broke the law on his contracts, and has refused to apologised, and is claiming there was no national shortage.”
After the furious war of words, a viewer congratulated Piers on Twitter for holding the minister to “account” and in the same breath branded BBC Breakfast host Dan a “jellyfish” in regard to how he interviews politicians.

The tweet read: “Spot on @piersmorgan Perhaps you could tutor that jellyfish @mrdanwalker of @BBCBreakfast on how to interview hold government ministers to account?”
Piers then cheekily retweeted the post and commented: “Very happy to help him grow a pair.”

Then last month, BBC Breakfast waged war on Piers and Good Morning Britain – insisting it’s the “UK’s most watched breakfast show”.
Show bosses hit back after rival host Piers vowed to overtake the channel’s ratings for the first time in 30 years.
On the day Good Morning Britain celebrated its most watched show in history, BBC Breakfast tweeted: “These @BBCBreakfast figures might make awkward reading for some:

“80m live stream requests on @BBCiPlayer (up 56%). Audience share of 42%
“Average daily reach of 5.7m Thanks for tuning in to the UK’s most watched Breakfast programme….”
Host Dan shared the tweet, adding: “Thanks for watching.”
