PIERS Morgan has shocked fans by claiming that he’s only been in the GMB studio with Ben Shephard ONCE in five years.
The telly journalist joked that his co-star must have it written into his contract to avoid him.
Posting the birthday tribute to Instagram, Piers, 55, wished the Good Morning Britain presenter a happy birthday on his 46th birthday.
He wrote: “Happy Birthday @benshephardofficial – my @gmb presenting colleague for the past 5yrs.
“Yet this the ONLY time we’ve ever appeared together in the studio. I assure it’s in his contract to avoid me because he feels he can’t compete aesthetically.”
Piers’s followers rushed to comment on the post with many wishing Ben a happy birthday and laughing at the tongue in cheek caption.
One penned: “Yes, that’ll be it!”
“You are hilarious,” added another.
While a third wrote: “It would be nice if you and birthday boy Ben were on together occasionally give Susanna a rest”
Piers was busy yesterday offering his birthday wishes out as he also posted tributes to his son, Bertie Morgan, who turned 20.
The GMB presenter shared two photos – one of Bertie on his first day of school and another of him and his dad now.
The telly presenter captioned the post: "Happy 20th Birthday to my youngest son @bertie_morgan.
"The pic on the left is his first day at school, the pic on the right is his first recorded day being taller than his father."
While many of his followers wished the Bristol student a very happy birthday, many others flocked to the comments section in awe of his good looks.
One wrote: "Is he single? Asking for a friend."
A second said: "Oh hello. Not you Piers."
Another added: "Gosh he's a bit of alright Piers."
And a few others were shocked that he's only just left his teen years behind him, as one said: "Wtf he's 20."
Another chimed in: "He’s 20?! Whattttt?!"
Bertie, who attended Wellington College in Berkshire and achieved three A*s in his A-Levels, is the second youngest of the Morgan clan after Spencer, 27, and Stanley, 23.
The three boys are also older brothers to their nine-year-old half-sister Elise.
The student, who boasts 13.4k followers on Instagram and over 6,000 on Twitter, definitely likes to keep himself out of the limelight.
