Jack Whitehall couldn’t resist a cheeky swipe at Piers Morgan during an appearance on today’s Good Morning Britain.
The comedian, who is hosting the Brit Awards again this year, joked that he much preferred seeing Andi Peters in the segment immediately before him.
Being introduced to the show via videolink by Susanna Reid and Adil Ray – who is replacing Piers after the host quit GMB – Jack said: ‘What I first want to explain to you about is thank you so much for that lead-in.
‘Having Andi Peters giving away a caravan on the set of Bridgerton – that’s the way to start my day.
‘Last time I was on I had five minutes of Piers shouting at Ann Widdecombe.’
‘That was definitely a much nicer way to start my day with Andi Peters,’ he laughed.

‘Things have changed,’ Adil quickly remarked, with Susanna, who presented with Piers for five years, laughing alongside him.
