Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan has been shortlisted for Best Television Presenter, and he used the opportunity to have dig at Meghan Markle.
Piers, 56, tweeted about his nomination and couldn't resist making a comment about his nemesis.
He wrote: "Most amused to finally be nominated for TV Presenter of the Year at the National Television Awards. Though could be a tad awks for ITV if I win for my work on GMB."
Piers added: "Might have to pull a Brando and send Princess Pinocchio along to receive it on my behalf…."
The outspoken presenter has regularly called Meghan 'Princess Pinocchio'.
He awarded her the nickname following her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey alongside Prince Harry.
A few friends of his replied offering to go for him, saying they'd make a great speech.
His former colleagues at Good Morning Britain couldn't resist making a joke at his expense as they revealed the news of his nomination.
Charlotte Hawkins congratulated him for his nomination, while Kate Garraway took a trip down memory lane of a previous nomination that didn't work out too well.
Kate laughed: "I remember when Good Morning Britain was nominated, it must have been two years ago now the last time that there was a proper ceremony, wasn't it? It didn't win and he was very cross.
"So we'll see if he comes this time! If he wins, it'll be very good."
Dr Hilary agreed with Morgan's tweet, remarking: "It would be ironic if he wins when he's off air!"
Panel guests Kevin Maguire and Amanda Platell also made jokes at the former host's expense.
"Who? Who was he? It rings a bell that name?" said Kevin.
Amanda joked: "Piers who? Is that some guy who used to work here?"
