Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan detailed an “unexpected turn” he faced after he joined Holly Willoughby, 39 and Phillip Schofield, 58. The ITV favourite explained that he and the This Morning presenter spoke candidly about their new books during a commercial break on the programme.

The 55-year-old explained that during the trio’s on-air discussion things took a dramatic turn.

Phillip detailed the real reason why he would never take part in Pier’s candid interview show Life Stories and added he would end up breaking down “in tears”.

His comments come after the This Morning star and the GMB host discussed recording the audio for their new books.

Piers explained: “Phil’s got a new book coming out too – his autobiography – and during a commercial break he empathised with my audio-recording hell.

“‘God, I found it so tough too,’ he said. ‘But more emotionally than physically.”It’s one thing writing about really personal things like my dad dying and more recent events, but reading it all out was incredibly difficult. I kept bursting into tears. That’s why I can’t do Life Stories – I’d never get through it!’”

Phillip’s candid admission comes just moments after Piers admitted the This Morning duo had him “revelling in discomfort” before they went live on-air.

The outspoken broadcaster continued in his latest column for MailOnline’s Events magazine that the pre-interview took an “unexpected turn”.

Piers said: “I appeared on This Morning and they sat me on a sofa for a pre-tease at the top of the show.

“I expected the normal build-up, something along the lines of ‘… and the always-opinionated Piers Morgan’s here to talk about his new Life Stories series’.”

He continued: “But things took a rather unexpected turn.”

This Morning host Holly had blurted out to him: “‘Piers, designer vaginas are on the rise!’”

“The camera zoomed in on my startled face. “But what should you actually put down there?’ she continued. ‘That’s the question,” Piers added.

The broadcaster admitted that his “unease increased” after Holly’s cheeky quip.

“‘SORRY? I shouted out. ‘That’s not why I’ve come on!’” Piers finished.

Fortunately, the cheeky duo were teasing the GMB presenter which as the ITV co-stars often go back and forth with each other.

Earlier this month, Phillip playfully taunted Piers after This Morning beat Good Morning Britain to win a TV Choice Award.

It was announced live on-air that the duo had scooped the award for Best Daytime Show.

This Morning beat off stiff competition to scoop the prize and Phillip couldn’t help but poke fun at fellow ITV colleague Piers, whose show GMB was also nominated in the same category.

After Alison Hammond presented the award to the pair, Phillip couldn’t resist remarking: “Thank you, sorry Piers!”.

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV at 10.30am while Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on the same channel.
