Piers Morgan blocks Jedward in X Factor row over Little Mix comments

IRISH popstar twins Jedward celebrated being blocked by Piers Morgan and labelled him a 'coward'.

The 55-year-old blocked identical twins John and Edward Grimes after they launched a tirade against the former Good Morning Britain host.

Their spat with Piers kicked off when they slammed Simon Cowell for considering rehiring him for Britain's Got Talent.

"Simon is considering Piers Morgan for judge on BGT after the s*** he said about Little Mix over this iconic photo! Have some respect for the girls you judgemental misogynistic farts!" Jedward wrote on Twitter.

"Simon and BGT don’t be back stabbers hiring Piers Morgan. You would have no reputation without Little Mix and previous acts! Still friends with a person who degraded young women in a hate campaign against them? Years may go by but fans don’t forget."

But Piers was having none of it and blocked the popular duo, which delighted them to no end and called him a 'coward'.

They wrote: "Confirmation @PiersMorgan is threatened and a coward!

"You can’t block free speech! No Justice No Peace."

Both Jedward and Little Mix rose to fame after competing on the reality singing competition, X-Factor.

Piers once accused Little Mix of 'stripping off' to sell records when he hosted Good Morning Britain.

"If men stripped off like that we'd be arrested but women do it and it's 'empowering'," he ranted at the time.

"They're stripping off to sell albums, that's what it's about. The rest of it is baloney. They don't have any flaws, they've been airbrushed to look perfect.

"They're fake. There's not a mark on them. You can't even see the surgery."

Piers has been making headlines recently after he stormed off the set of GMB.

He then quit the morning ITV program, rather than apologising for his comments about not believing Meghan Markle in her Oprah Winfrey interview. 

Since quitting Good Morning Britain, Piers has seen his 2020 book Wake Up soar to number one in the Amazon charts – both in hardback and paper copy.

Thanking his supporters, Piers said yesterday: "It says to me the British public do care about free speech and they do care about the right to have an opinion."

He also revealed he's had messages from members of the Royal Family thanking him for "standing up" to Prince Harry and Meghan.

Piers claimed he had received messages sent on behalf of "several" royals over his coverage of the couple's Oprah Winfrey interview.

He said: "I've had some messages communicated to me on behalf on several members of the Royal Family.

"I'm not going to go into who it was… but gratitude that somebody was standing up."
