Piers Morgan has hit back at Ewan McGregor, after he cancelled an interview on ‘Good Morning Britain’ at the last minute on Tuesday (24 January), after discovering who would be conducting it.

The actor took to Twitter to tell fans he wouldn’t be appearing on the daytime show as planned, citing Piers’ controversial comments on the weekend’s women’s marches as his reason.

As you’d expect, presenter Piers has been swift in his reply, explaining the situation before making a series of accusations about Ewan.

He adds that the first he learnt of Ewan’s decision was when he checked Twitter during a commercial break.

The former ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge went on to make a series of controversial comments, highlighting positive statements Ewan has previously made about director Roman Polanski.

Meanwhile, debates over Ewan’s decision have been ongoing on Twitter, and while Sir Patrick Stewart has praised the actor, Susanna Reid has defended herself, against those who have said she doesn’t do enough to challenge her co-presenter.
