Chelsea Handler has shared throwback footage of a fiery interview with ‘a**hole’ Piers Morgan, as she celebrated his exit from Good Morning Britain.
The comedian posted a 2014 clip of her clashing with Piers during his time on CNN, after the presenter left the ITV show last night.
‘Some a**hole’s get better. Some just stay the same,’ Chelsea said, alongside the clip.
The pair have a heated exchange in the old footage, with Chelsea taking an issue with the presenter’s lack of focus.
Hitting out at Piers in the clip, Chelsea said: ‘You can’t even pay attention for 60 seconds. You’re a terrible interviewer.
‘You just weren’t keeping my attention,’ Piers replied.
‘That’s not my problem. This is your show, you have to pay attention to the guests that you invited onto your show.’
‘If they’re interesting enough,’ Piers replied.
Chelsea hit back by saying: ‘Listen, it doesn’t matter how interesting I am. You signed up for this job. Maybe that’s why your job is coming to an end.’
Later in the interview, Piers said: ‘If I could give you one moment back to do differently in your life to repeat right now. What would you choose?’
‘It would be spending this hour differently,’ Chelsea replied.
Piers’ exit from Good Morning Britain comes after Ofcom opened an investigation into his behaviour surrounding Meghan Markle following 41,000 complaints.
Piers had been under fire since Monday’s episode where he condemned Meghan’s comments in her and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah, in which she revealed she felt suicidal in the past.
ITV confirmed his departure on Tuesday night, releasing a statement saying: ‘Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.
‘ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add.’
Since leaving the show, the presenter admitted that he still ‘doesn’t believe’ anything Meghan said in the interview. He has also promised he’ll be back, after being ‘cancelled’ by the ‘woke crowd’.
Good Morning Britain airs at 10am on ITV.
