“The EU is on [World Trade Organisation] tariffs,” Duncan Smith protested.

“When we sell to France we are not,” Kyle said.

But as the debate became heated, Morgan and co-host Susanna Reid jokingly walked off the set, leaving the two MPs to battle it out together.

Watch the clip, above.

Morgan later joked: “Wow I thought I was noisy in the morning.”

Reid said: “I’ve never heard you be so quiet in a debate.”

It comes as MPs continue to debate legislation on the triggering of Article 50, with a key vote on the so-called Brexit Bill due at 7pm tonight.
