Piers Morgan has branded Coronation Street favourite Seb Franklin an ‘impertinent little twerp’.
The ITV soap last night aired scenes which saw Seb refer to the former Good Morning Britain host.
Seb – evidently scared – watched as Roy Cropper (David Neilson) approached him to discuss his developing relationship with Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher).
‘May I be candid with you?,’ asked Roy
‘Yeah, you can be whoever you like,’ replied Seb, ‘As long as it’s not Piers Morgan because he does my nut in!’
Following the airing of the scenes in question, Piers has hit back at the soap character in a new post on social media.
While Piers was evidently not a fan, viewers of the long-running serial drama evidently enjoyed it, with several taking to social media to relay such a thing.
One said: ‘As long as it’s not Piers Morgan, he does my nut in. If ever there was a line that I identify with!!!!’
Seb, meanwhile, will be at the centre of huge scenes later this week, when he and Nina are cornered and subjected to an unprovoked attacked.
Nina and Seb are confronted by Corey Brent (Maximus Evans) and his drunk cronies, who yell hateful terms at Nina.
Seb stands up for her before they make tracks, but the gang gives chase.
Coronation Street continues Wednesday May 5 at 7:30pm on ITV.
