Piers Morgan reignites Denise Welch feud in scathing rant labelling TV star a 'vile, spiteful hypocrite'

Piers Morgan has reignited his long-running feud with Loose Women star Denise Welch after posting a string of insults directed towards her in an explosive online rant.

The TalkTV host, 58, has made no secret of his dislike towards the 65-year-old television star in recent years, and has now once again aired his problems with the ex-Waterloo road actress in public after labelling her as a "vile, spiteful hypocrite".

Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers also didn't keep quiet on his thoughts over the ongoing drama surrounding ITV hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby following Phil's sharp exit from This Morning.

Airing his controversial thoughts in his column in The Sun, Piers launched a tirade at his former employer as he recalled his time working for the broadcaster.

"I met a lot of good, decent people when I worked in that environment, and took some of them with me when I joined TalkTV,” he said, before first taking aim at his former colleague and GMB weatherman Alex Beresford.

"But there are more than a few I would now cross continents to avoid, like GMB’s deputy stand-in weatherman Alex Beresford who begged me for media advice then tried – and failed – to make a name for himself taking me down on my last show with a pre-rehearsed attack speech."

Then he turned his attention to Denise, writing: "Or the likes of Loose Women’s Denise Welch, a vile, spiteful hypocrite who makes a fortune from preaching about the need to ‘be kind’ but likes nothing better than spewing hateful foul-mouthed abuse at people on Twitter."

It comes as Phillip's exit from the ITV show came as a shock to viewers after 21 years presenting the show, as Piers has previously spoken out in support of Phil admitting he feels "much sympathy" for the former ITV host having gone through a similar ordeal.

Piers stormed off the Good Morning Britain set in 2021 in dramatic scenes during a heated debate surrounding ex-working royal Meghan Markle, who he has publicly scrutinised over the years following her bombshell Oprah Winfrey about the monarchy.

Days after the chaos on the ITV set, Piers made a shock exit from the show after six years following his comments aimed at the Duchess of Sussex which sparked thousands of complaints from viewers.

ITV released a brief statement at the time having confirmed that the TV presenter would not be making a return to the show.

"Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add," the statement read.

Piers has now claimed that history is now repeating itself, following the recent news of Phillip stepping, and blasted ITV as 'savages' after the presenting star wasn't honoured with an emotional send-off despite fronting the show for 21 years.

Appearing on Times Radio, TalkTV host Piers said: "Anyone who thinks daytime telly is full of smiley, nicey, happy clappy people; I think they are beginning to realise it is infested by a pack of savages.

"There is nothing more ruthless than the way talent, as we so laughably get called in TV, get treated when the plug gets pulled."

Although Piers and Phillip endured a 20-year feud, the pair put their drama to bed in recent years, with Piers being one of the loudest voices who have publicly supported the fallen ITV star in recent days.
