Piers Morgan has taken another swipe at former Good Morning Britain colleague Alex Beresford.

The former GMB presenter was wishing a happy birthday to his ex-co-star Laura Tobin who celebrated her 40th birthday.

Laura celebrated her birthday on Friday morning’s instalment of the show.

In a social media post, Piers wrote: Happy 40th Birthday to the fabulous @Lauratobin1

“Brilliant meteorologist, possessor of [flame emoji] leather trousers (no apologies to any wokies offended) and thoroughly decent & loyal (ex) colleague."

He then quipped: "My kinda weather presenter."

He included a winking emoji in a dig at Beresford, also a weather presenter.

The former newspaper editor quit the show after dismissive comments about Meghan Markle's claim that she has suffered with her mental health as part of the royal family following an interview with US chat show host Oprah Winfrey alongside her husband Prince Harry.

At the time an Ofcom spokesperson said: “We have launched an investigation into Monday’s episode of Good Morning Britain under our harm and offence rules.”

In his final appearance on the ITV breakfast show, Mr Morgan walked off the Good Morning Britain set after facing criticism for his comments regarding Meghan Markle.

Co-star Alex Beresford took exception with a number of Mr Morgan's comments and brought it up live on air.

In response, Mr Morgan stormed off set saying: “I’m done with this”.

ITV confirmed Piers had quit his role on Good Morning Britain that night.
