Watch the hilarious clip below:
When co-hosts Susanna Reid and Alastair Campbell were discussing the country’s fuel crisis, one guest mistakenly called Alastair by Piers’ name.
Andrew Pierce, who was also a guest on Wednesday’s show, jumped in after the mistake and joked: “Who? Who? Who? Who’s that?!”
Susanna quipped: “He’s completely changed his programme!” and Andrew replied: “It’s a distraction technique.”
It seems Piers’ ghost may still haunt the halls of Good Morning Britain, with Andrew also falling into the trap of uttering Piers’ name instead of Alastair’s.
Alastair took the faux pas as a joke and yelled back: “Stop calling me Piers, for God’s sake.”
Afterwards, Susanna added: “The ghost of Piers Morgan still exists on this programme.”
We wouldn’t be surprised!
Piers seems to have many doppelgangers – like the pigeon lady from Home Alone – and now we can add Alastair to that list, although we think the host would disagree.
Andrew cheekily compared Alastair and Piers’ looks, adding: “You look similar – you just look a bit older.”
To which Alastair replied gleefully: “What do you mean, I’ve only got two chins.”
Piers Morgan presented Good Morning Britain with Susanna Reid until March 2021, when he stormed off set after being confronted by Alex Beresford about his comments about Meghan Markle’s mental health.
His controversial comments came after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were interviewed by Oprah Winfrey about their decision to walk away from royal family duties.
Earlier this month Piers confirmed he will work alongside media giant Rupert Murdoch to launch a new national television station called talkTV in 2022. He will also join The Sun as a columnist.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
