Piers Morgan brands James Acaster a ‘pasty weasel’ as he hits back at comedian

Piers Morgan hit back at comedian James Acaster in a brutal swipe during Monday's Good Morning Britain.

James Acaster made headlines recently after the comedy star told Lorraine Kelly to "go f*** yourself" after she named Piers her 'hero of 2020'.

Morgan, who never holds back when it comes to his fiery rants, branded Acaster a 'pasty weasel'.

After the show played the clip of James, Piers said: "I don't know who that little pasty weasel is.

"James what? James Acaster."

"Apparently he's a comedian. I thought comedians were supposed to be funny…", he added.

Susanna Reid shot to Acaster's defence as she said she thought he was funny. She remarked: "I was actually watching some of his standup last night."
