Famous Twitter arch-foes, Piers Morgan and Jeremy Clarkson are set to do battle again.
Mr Morgan is not happy with the Top Gear presenter after he sent out an ill-advised Tweet last night containing a picture of himself with a sign saying “gay c**t”.
Jeremy Clarkson posted this image on Twitter
The US-based TV presenter blasted Clarkson's "homophobic slur", affectionately noting his “flabby neck”.
Embracing homophobic slurs with your petrol-head mates @JeremyClarkson ? And you have the brass flabby neck to call ME a ****? Wow.

Despite facing criticism, Morgan defended his comments:

Clarkson tweeted the image featuring fellow Top Gear host James May, along with the caption “Sadly, I fell asleep on the plane.”
Piers clearly wasn't the only one offended by the picture, as Clarkson was forced to apologise after clearly upsetting his followers.
"I have deleted my last tweet and would like to apologise profusely to anyone who I upset while I was asleep," he wrote.
It isn't the first time Clarkson has been accused of being homophobic, as George Michael previously labelled the presenter a “pig-ugly homophobic tw*t”, after he made a comment about him live on air.
Hopefully, a fantastic, expletive laden insult-fest will ensue between Clarkson and Morgan again.
