After Dan's co-host Louise Minchin confirmed her departure earlier this week, Piers wasted no time in taunting his "rival" Dan, who had likened the news to a "break up".

The BBC journalist tweeted his sadness and said: "This feels like a break-up. What am I going to do without Louise? Thank you for all the lovely messages after an emotional morning on #BBCBreakfast. I'm sure Louise will get to read them all later. My life will be poorer without her on the sofa. She's the best."

Piers decided to leave GMB with immediate effect back in March

Upon seeing Dan's emotional tweet, the former GMB star joked that he would be joining him on the famous red sofa. "Stop blubbing Dan - I start Monday," he remarked. "BBC wanted the guy who beat you in the ratings, and the first same-sex male breakfast presenting team to appease the wokies."

Poking fun at his GMB exit, Dan hit back with: "No thanks… wouldn't want you storming off if Carol [Kirkwood] asked you something awkward. #TearsForPiers."

Piers then wished Louise good luck, saying: "Great innings Louise - you're a class act. Enjoy those lie-ins!" In response, Louise replied: "Thank you, much appreciated."
