This made us laugh.

Graham Norton has put Good Morning Britain motormouth Piers Morgan in his place and told the presenter to “grow a pair” following his feud with Ewan McGregor.

To bring you up to speed, the 51-year-old host hit out at the ‘T2 Trainspotting’ actor earlier this week after he refused to appear on the breakfast programme when Piers made controversial comments about the women’s marches following Donald Trumps’ Presidential inauguration.

In an article he wrote for the Daily Mail, Piers said he was “planning a men’s march to protest at the creeping global emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists”.

Ewan found out about his silly comments and swiftly tweeted: “Was going on Good Morning Britain, didn’t realise @piersmorgan was host. Won’t go on with him after his comments about #WomensMarch”

Rather than accept Ewan’s decision and opinion on the matter, he took a childish swipe at the actor and responded: “A real man would have come on and debated it with me, not run away like a coward.”

Now, Graham – who has managed to secure Ewan as a guest on ‘his own The Graham Norton Show’ – has told Piers to grow up.

He told RadioTimes.com: “We didn’t discuss Piers Morgan because there’s nothing to discuss.

“You describe it as a fracas. It’s only a fracas in Piers Morgan’s mind.

“It is funny that he talks about millennial snowflakes (referring to women who he deems too sensitive) and yet a man didn’t agree to come on his show and he’s been tweeting about it non-stop for 48 hours. Really, grow a pair.”

Ewan will appear on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ on Friday January 27 at 10:35pm on BBC One.

Three cheers for Graham!
