Piers Morgan, 55, feud with fellow presenters Ant and Dec has continued today after the former Good Morning Britain presenter lost out to the Geordie duo at the National Television Awards yesterday. After venting his fury on Twitter at the duo for beating him to the best presenter award, Piers has now has begged his star footballer pal Cristiano Ronaldo to do some of his dirty work.
Newcastle United fans Ant and Dec were cheering on their beloved made team today against Manchester United as Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford.
“Bury them please @Cristiano,” pleaded Piers in a post to his eight million Twitter followers.
The post came in response to Ant and Dec posting, “Anybody know if there’s any football on today? Haven’t heard it mentioned” on their official Twitter account.
And former Real Madrid star Ronaldo duly delivered on the pitch with two goals as the Red Devils beat the Magpies 4-1 at Old Trafford in this afternoon’s eagerly-anticipated Premier League clash.
Fellow Portuguese playmaker Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard were also on the scoresheet as they and Ronaldo helped Piers in his bid to spoil Ant and Dec’s afternoon.
And to make things even sweeter for broadcaster Piers, his beloved Arsenal beat Norwich City 1-0 at home as he was pictured at today’s game with former Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira.
Piers was understandably delighted Ronaldo had scored twice and rejoiced on Twitter.
“BREAKING: @Cristiano scores,” penned Piers.
“Of course he does.”
It comes as Piers hit out at Ant and Dec after they beat him to the Best Presenter award at the NTAs yesterday.
The former Good Morning Britain host, who opted to skip the event at London’s O2 Arena, also branded the awards ceremony a “snoozefest”, as the same stars tend to win each year.
Ant and Dec’s triumph marked their 20th win of the coveted presenting gong in a row.

Piers fumed in a new interview: “Well, I knew Ant & Dec would win. I don’t even know why they bother to count the votes.”
The star went on to slam the presenting duo for their show, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, insisting that his “contribution” to TV over the past year was “more significant”.
He added: “We’ve just been in the middle of a pandemic in which their contribution was to interview people about eating kangaroo testicles in a Welsh castle.
“I felt my contribution to the biggest news story of our lifetime was slightly more significant.”
Piers was praised by GMB viewers for criticising the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, before he quit the show after storming off the set over his views on Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
He added to the Daily Mail: “That is the lot of anybody who works in television.
“There is an unwritten rule that Ant & Dec win all the awards and will continue to do so.
“So, I don’t think they should really bother with these awards anymore because they’re sort of pointless.”
