Piers Morgan reacts to Ant and Dec’s swipe at him at TV Baftas telling them ‘I couldn’t be LESS happy for you’
PIERS Morgan has broken his silence after Ant and Dec reignited their ‘feud’ with him when they won a BAFTA.
The cheeky presenters said “we’re doing something right” after upsetting Piers for their long list of awards.
“That’s great, we like that”, added Ant.
The duo were awarded Best Entertainment for Saturday Night Takeaway.
Piers finally reacted to their dig saying 'he couldn't be less happy' about their Bafta gong.
The Talk TV presenter retweeted a The Sun story about the pair's comments and shared his two cents on the incident.
"I couldn’t be less happy for you, lads @antanddec," Piers wrote on Twitter, followed by a thumbs up emoji.
Ant and Dec famously went up against Piers last year at National Television Awardsfor Best Presenter – and won for the 20th consecutive year.

After his loss, Piers hit out: He said: "I deserve to win because everyone’s sick and tired of Ant and Dec automatically winning this award, which bears no relation to reality.
"They’ve done nothing special in the last year, even they would admit that.
"I think it’s time the procession came to a shuddering halt and the Morgan bandwagon was rewarded with glory.
"We can’t have those two little vain-glorious Geordies standing there for the 20th consecutive year. Ant got one one year when he hadn’t even worked. It’s ridiculous."

Despite the continuous run of wins in the long-running career, Ant and Dec insist each award means just as much.
“This means a lot tonight, to still be nominated 17 years later and still be winning 17 years on means an awful lot, said Ant.
“We’re thrilled to be able to do this job and still get away with it after all these years. It means more now than it ever did.
Dec added: “We’re going to keep going as long as we can as long as the knees and back hold out. SNT is what we always wanted to make because we grew up on these kind of shows. It’s proper British Saturday night entertainment.”
