Piers's desire to beat the Geordie duo comes as no surprise. Earlier this week, Piers admitted that good friend Ant and his ex-wife Lisa Armstrong were in his bad books.

The presenter spoke about recent pictures that showed Lisa clearing out her former home with ex-husband Ant, and getting rid of items that the pair of them didn't want to keep. Amongst the discarded items was a copy of Piers's book, The Insider.

"I always thought I was friends with Ant McPartlin. He left his unwanted stuff on the street… it's stuff Ant didn't want back and Lisa didn't want to keep. His Newcastle shirts, I wouldn't want to keep them either. There's all these things and in the middle of it, there's a copy of my book, The Insider," he told co-host Susanna Reid.

"That's my book, lying in the street this morning. Lisa, have the common decency. At least put it somewhere where some newspaper can't photograph it lying in the street."

Charlotte Hawkins was quick to tease her co-star, joking: "And still no-one took it?" Piers jokily added: "You literally can’t give it away!"
