Under fire from America's gun lobby, Piers Morgan found himself on the receiving end of a bizarre rant from conspiracy theorist and radio DJ Alex Jones.

Appearing with Morgan on CNN, the shock-jock descended into a farcical diatribe over gun ownership, managing to wind himself up to the point of eruption with his "antagonist" barely having to say a word.

John "is that an egg, mate?" Prescott took to Twitter offering to train up Morgan so he can take on Jones in a boxing match.
