Watch: Piers Morgan dishes on reunion with Jeremy Clarkson

Piers Morgan has said it was a "tense" reunion for him and his one-time enemy Jeremy Clarkson when they got together for a Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? special.

It was recently accounted that the Good Morning Britain host would be appearing on the celebrity version of the quiz show, which is hosted by Clarkson, on Boxing Day.

Morgan, 55, discussed the upcoming programme on the ITV breakfast show, bringing up their feud and the incident that saw Clarkson, 60, punch him three times at the 2004 British Press Awards.

"I'm now in the unnerving position to confirm I have taken part in Celebrity Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? for a Boxing Day special appropriately, given the host is somebody who once punched me three times in the head," he said.

"It was as tense as you would imagine with Mr Clarkson and I," Morgan added.

His co-star Susanna Reid asked when the pair had last been in the same room together, to which Morgan replied: "We sort of kissed... we didn't kiss and make up, we've bear hugged and had a big night out at my local pub, and drank ourselves to oblivion and declared peace after a 10-year feud."

"I've got to say it was a fascinating encounter, and it's fair to say the banter is off the charts as you can imagine," he said of his upcoming experience. "I think at one stage he shows me his gnarled finger he broke hitting my head...but it's good fun."
