Piers Morgan taunts Holly Willoughby as he sends her 40th birthday wishes

Piers Morgan cheekily mocked Holly Willoughby while paying her a birthday tribute on Good Morning Britain.

Morgan gave the This Morning presenter a birthday shout-out as he said : "I want to wish a happy 40th to Holly Willoughby. She'll be so glad I mentioned it."

Susanna remarked: "Finally! They're in our sort of age band, though I've sort of tipped over into the 50s."

Piers replied jokingly: "Yeah, and you got a load of sycophantic guff in The Sun but nothing quite like this! 'She's sexy, but unobtainable. She's happy and professional. Women love her, men love her and brands love her. It all works!'"

He added while laughing: "Happy 40th, Holls! She's a great laugh, I've got to say. Amid all my constant taunting – I think my constant taunting has been mitigated by the fact that there are no awards ceremonies at the moment.

"So I've got to put up with her and Phil Schofield standing there talking about, 'We're all a big happy ITV family!' Yeah, we are when you lot win everything – you are, we're not. We're not a happy ITV family."
