PIERS Morgan moaned about getting just two hours sleep last night as Good Morning Britain came on air.
The TV star was clearly in a foul mood as he revealed he was kept awake with “angst and fury”.
Screwing up a piece of paper and throwing it across the studio, Piers said: “I only had two hours sleep last night.”
Susanna Reid joked: “Really? No one would have noticed.”
When asked why, he replied: “I was just full of angst and fury.”
His co-host then sympathetically rested her hand on his shoulder before he batted her off.
Those watching at home teased Piers about his lack of shut-eye, and joked about the sleep-deprived star’s interview style with the managing director of Iceland over their banned palm oil-focused advert.
One wrote: “I don’t know if it’s lack of sleep with having a newborn baby but Piers Morgan on #GMB is hilarious.. Vegans.. Fire me.”
Another commented: “@susannareid1 Ha ha, you would never guess that Piers got only two hours sleep. More power to Iceland.”
A third shared: “#gmb Iceland MD thought he was going to get a nice easy interview, ends up being savaged for selling 00s of products with palm oil. Don’t go on gmb after piers has only 2 hours sleep.”
It comes as Piers was forced to apologise after a Dutchman claiming to be “age fluid” shouted “d***” live on yesterday’s Good Morning Britain.
Emile Ratelband, 69, is in the midst of a legal battle to change his age because he claims he looks and feels like a 49-year-old.
But this morning he distracted viewers from his argument when he ranted: “If you are born as a beautiful small girl and now you’re as beautiful as you are now and you say ‘I feel like a man, I want to have a d***.”
He was arguing that if transgender people are allowed to change sex, he should be allowed to change his birth date because doctors say he has the body of a younger man.

But his early morning outburst left Piers and co-host Susanna Reid open-mouthed.
He said: “We’d like to apologise to everyone who was offended by Emile’s language.”
Defending his language Emile said: “I’m from the continent. Sorry, apologies.”
