During a debate section of the show at around 6.30am, Alex accused Piers Morgan of ‘diabolical behaviour’.

Immediately after that stands up and says: ‘Ok, I’m done with this. Sorry. You can trash me mate but not on my own show. See you later’.

But Mr Beresford wasn’t finished, he said to Piers: ‘You know what that’s diabolical behaviour. That’s pathetic’ as the camera watched Mr Morgan walk off set.

‘I’m sorry but Piers just spouts off on a regular basis and we have to sit there and listen. 6.30 to 7am yesterday was incredibly hard to watch.”
