Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid branded co-host Piers Morgan a ‘psychopath’ during an on-air rant on ITV1.

When the bickering pair appeared on Lorraine, things seemed to be going ok – and by that we mean Piers taking over the conversation to fill the airtime with the sound of his own voice.

But they were there there to discuss the serious issues of human rights across the world.

As Piers, 53, talked about how people who lived in the Middle-East may have issues with their own country’s ‘human rights abuses and foreign policies’, he was questioned by the show’s host Lorraine Kelly, 58.

At what point do you say “we’re all squeaky clean, how dare we go to these countries”?’ Piers asked, to which Lorraine chipped in with ‘Antarctica!’

Piers said: ‘Apparently they treat Eskimos terribly over there!’ to which she corrected him by informing the presenter that there aren’t any there – just penguins.

‘Seriously, no Eskimos in Antarctica?’ he queried in absolute disbelief.

‘You talk about Love Island being daft!’ she scolded him, after previously branding the ITV2 dating show vapid and laying into its contestants.

‘This is the thing,’ Susanna, 47, began, ‘He shows other people up for this…

‘You buffoon! You buffoon! You’re a psychopath and a buffoon!’ she said as means of further embarrassing the know-it-all host for getting it wrong.

Catch Susanna and Piers on Good Morning Britain weekdays, from 6.30am, and Lorraine each weekday from 8.30am, both on ITV1.
