PIERS Morgan branded Ant McPartlin a “titch” and slammed Ant and Dec’s national treasure status on Good Morning Britain today after the I’m A Celeb presenters called him a “snowflake”.
The row rumbled on after the cheeky Geordie pair made a dig about Piers on I’m A Celeb on Sunday night.
Then on Monday, the trio got in a Twitter spat after Piers said he had more fans than the duo.
Speaking about Ant and Dec’s comeback and their national treasure status, Piers carried on his rant and said on Tuesday: “What is that based on, popularity? I currently have on Twitter one of the biggest followings in the world.
“Ant and Dec between them, because they are the only non separated, non siamese twins… I am twice as popular as each of them.
“Why are they national treasures and I am not?”

Piers then added with a smirk about 5ft 6inch Ant: “That titch.”
However, Piers admitted he has been loving Ant and Dec’s comeback on I’m A Celebrity after Ant took a year off to recover from drink and drug addiction.

Piers said: “I have to say I watched about an hour of it, it is hilarious.”
Reacting to seeing her squirm, he added: “I’m not sure after the watershed I can handle cockroaches encroaching on Kate’s private parts.”
