Vinnie Jones gave Ross King quite the surprise on Thursday morning's Good Morning Britain. During the live show, the former footballer hit Ross in the face with a pie as part of a birthday prank. The star ran into the camera shot, shouting: "Hello, your birthday is it son?", before pushing a pie into his face. Ross then attempts to chase after him, shouting "come back" while his co-stars Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid chuckled at the cheeky move. Piers said: "Fabulous! Get in there Vinnie my son. Vinnie Jones has just wished Ross King Happy Birthday in his own inimitable style. You never want to be around Vinnie Jones for that long trust, me. That's what happens."

The star also thanked Kerry Katona after she wished him a happy birthday, writing: "Thank you! Still getting icing out of everywhere!!" Fans were quick to join in on the fun, with one writing: "LOL @VinnieJones65 is PRICELESS - HARD as a NUT when he was a player but now a charming hilarious BOX OFFICE champ. Go on son." Another added: "Have I really just seen Vinnie Jones smoke someone with a pie to the face on live TV!? GEDDIN!!"

Vinnie has been enjoying a hectic 2017, as he is due to appear in the 2017 film Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The actor also recently co-starred in Galavant alongside Joshua Sasse and Kylie Minogue, who recently announced their split after a year-long engagement. Speaking about how the pair met, the 52-year-old told The Sun: "His opening line to her was, 'You do know all our guest stars have dinner with the star of the show of Galavant. He's hilarious. She was on set quite a bit. I knew about them before anyone. Joshua was moving into her hotel the night before she came – on purpose."
