Tomorrow night (January 4) will see Piers Morgan sit down with Caitlyn Jenner as his Life Stories interview series returns to ITV.

Ahead of the broadcast, which will see Piers interview Caitlyn about her transition as well as her relationship with the Kardashians and ex-wife Kris, ITV has teased a one-minute clip that shows Caitlyn schooling Piers in trans etiquette.

The pair seem to briefly butt heads after Piers comments on "certain parts" of Caitlyn that are different following her sex reassignment surgery.

And Caitlyn is having none of it.

"How does your physique compare now to what it was like then, compared to certain areas?" Piers asks.

An affronted-looking Caitlyn appears to be gliding over the remark, before she rebuts his comments with an education on what things are unacceptable to joke about in relation to the trans community.

"See, you made a comment there and that's where you would get in trouble," Caitlyn says. "You said 'certain areas'.

"You see, that ['certain areas' joke] to a trans person is disrespectful."

Piers then asks Caitlyn to explain why the comment was disrespectful. She replies: "It's not funny, it's life.

"And it's part of my life and it's a very serious part of my life, and I don't take it and I take that very seriously, and so, out of respect to myself and the community, it's not something that we joke about.

"This is serious stuff, people die over this issue, it's not a joke. People die over this issue."

Piers Morgan's Life Stories: Caitlyn Jenner will air at 9pm on Thursday, January 4 on ITV.
