While discussing taking children to work, Adil said: "When your kids were young, Susanna, were you taking them into a TV studio while you were presenting? You have presented with some babies over the years, haven't you? […] They stormed out and threw a tantrum."

Piers responded to the news on Twitter, writing: "Hmmm. Given how Mr Ray has helped destroy GMB’s ratings since I left, if I were him I’d probably avoid mocking the guy who took them to record heights."

His followers were quick to respond with something of a mixed reaction, with one writing: "Can't say I was always a fan of you, yet @adilray is not fit to lace your shoes when it comes to presenting. I Don’t watch when he is on, simple." Another person added: "Single handedly? No credit to all the many other people who worked on the show with you?"

Piers is set to have a busy time in the new year after he confirmed that he will be joining News Corp and FOX News Media in a global deal from 2022. Speaking about the move, he said: “I’m thrilled to be returning to News Corp. which is where I began my media career more than 30 years ago. Rupert Murdoch has been a constant and fearless champion of free speech and we are going to be building something new and very exciting together.
