Piers Morgan claims he'll 'get arrested' for calling plus-sized model 'hot'

Piers Morgan claimed he’d get arrested for telling a plus-sized model she was ‘hot’ on Good Morning Britain.

The ITV host, who has had some rather controversial views in the past about plus-sized models, got a little hot under the collar when talking to Victoria’s Secret model Ali Tate Cutler.

The body positive campaigner, who is a size 14, has become the brand’s first ever plus-sized model as it looks to broaden its appeal beyond its famous supermodel runway show.

However, Piers questioned why change was needed, telling Ali: ‘I’m not saying you’re not hot because clearly you are. I’ll probably get arrested for saying that.

‘Before I get arrested the point is why do we need to change Victoria’s Secret?

‘Why does it need to rebrand itself with plus-sized models?’

When Susanna Reid argued Victoria’s Secret has a different purpose to a sexy stage show like Magic Mike, Piers argued: ‘Victoria’s Secret is selling a fantasy, and that’s how they sell their underwear.’

Piers has history when it comes to criticising plus-sized models.

Last year he citicised Cosmopolitan magazine for using Tess Holliday on the cover.

The famous shot showed the 34-year-old model posing in a green one-piece while blowing a kiss.

But Piers wasn’t impressed, sharing the cover on Instagram and writing: ‘As Britain battles an ever-worsening obesity crisis, this is the new cover of Cosmo.

‘Apparently we’re supposed to view it as a ‘huge step forward for body positivity. What a load of old baloney. This cover is just as dangerous & misguided as celebrating size zero models.’

Although at the time Tess hit back at Piers tweeting:  ‘To everyone saying I’m a burden to the British health care system, I’m American so you don’t have to worry about my fat ass.

Worry about what horrible people you are by whining about how me being on the cover of a glossy magazine impacts your small minded life.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6.30am on ITV.
