Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 54, was called “fat” by his daughter yesterday when he compared himself to Hollywood actor Colin Firth, 59.
The TV presenter was explaining to his eight-year-old daughter Elise that people often confuse him for the movie star as the pair watched one of his films together.
Piers took to social media to share the humorous anecdote with his 813,000 Instagram followers after his daughter poked fun at him.
Piers explained: “Watching Love Actually with my daughter for the first time, and explained that people often mix me up with Colin Firth. There was a lengthy pause.”
The father-of-four went on to say that his daughter replied: “No Dada.. you’re a lot fatter.”
The post caused quite a stir with many of his celebrity pals on social media, who took to the comments section to share their thoughts.
The presenter included a picture of himself with the actor alongside the post to showcase their likeness.
Piers’ GMB co-star Laura Tobin, 38, added a laughing emoji to the post, as did fellow TV presenter Myleene Klass, 41, and former footballer Robbie Keane, 39.
Mark Wright, 32, similarly added: “Hahahaha.”
Other Instagram users thought the youngster shared a similar sense of humour to her father and reminded the presenter that children often tell the truth.
One user wrote: “… a child never lies Piers !!!”
Another person shared the sentiment, adding: “Kids tell the truth!”
A third remarked: “She’s got your sense of humour and sharp wit!”
Vanessa Ponce, 27, the winner of Miss World 2018, simply said: “Love her.”
