After watching the clips, Piers added: "I don't think any video has excited the team more or made something in me slightly die." The pair were then shocked as Charlotte Hawkins began to recreate the video by showing off some serious dance moves - including twerking!

Of course, Piers couldn't help but tease his co-star, saying: "The things people will do to get a bit more airtime! It's baffling why Brendan Cole was kicked off Strictly after that! Just reminding the nation why they voted you straight off. Actually, I think your dancing has improved."

Susanna disagreed, saying: "I think that was absolutely awesome, by the way, Charlotte! That was absolutely terrific!" 

Despite his comments, viewers were loving Charlotte's dance move, with one tweeting: "Wow! Well done Charlotte!! I never thought you had it in you," while another added: "Well done Charlotte. One thing I will say about the GMB team is you know how to have a laugh and some fun during these testing times. Loved it. Keep it up." 

A third person posted: "I think @CharlotteHawkns' dancing was awesome, @piersmorgan wouldn’t do it because he doesn’t want to be shown up."
