    He regularly leaves his co-host Susanna Reid flabbergasted with his breakfast TV antics.

    And Piers Morgan surpassed himself on Wednesday’s installment of This Morning when he playfully smashed his glass Pointless trophy on the floor when the quiz show’s host Richard Osmond branded him a ‘loser’.

    The TV personality, 52, feigned fury when Richard teased him about only placing second on a celebrity edition of the quiz last year alongside Susanna.

    The interview began on a frosty note when Piers joked: ‘You’re so Pointless, I can’t remember what you do.’

    The lovable quiz master got his own back, however, when he mocked Piers for placing runner-up on his game show, reminding the journalist that he had previously stated ‘gold is all that matters’ when it comes to the Olympics.

    ‘If someone goes to the Olympics and wins a silver medal – to you, that’s not winning’, he joked.

    ‘I think if you go all the way and don’t quite do the last bit, I think probably you’re a loser.’

    Piers came over all stony-faced, declaring, ‘This is actually a silver medal’ as he threw the trophy on the floor in mock outrage.

    Susanna looked on flabbergast before attempting to smooth things over, while Piers branded the gong a ‘meaningless appendage for a pair of losers’.

    This comes after Piers’ interview with Mariah Carey left viewers baffled.

    Her interview on Monday’s installment of the breakfast news show came following the breaking news of the shooting in Las Vegas.

    Mariah was due to chat to Piers and Susanna about her upcoming Christmas shows in London and Paris before news broke about the shocking incident at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival – which so far has claimed the lives of 50 people and left more than 400 injured.

    Appearing through a live feed from her Beverly Hills home, Mariah was seen stretched out across a chaise longue in a red gown as the British TV presenters asked her about the attack near the Mandalay Bay Resort and Hotel.

    The Grammy award-winning singer is no stranger to the world-renowned Vegas strip, having held residency at Caesars Palace’s the Colosseum in recent years.

    Although sincere in her condolences, viewers of the popular ITV morning stalwart took to Twitter to share how surreal the moment was as she lay glamorously across her chair.

    One wrote: ‘Good morning Britain talking live about the shooting in Las Vegas and Mariah Carey’s there lay on the sofa like she’s posing for a photo shoot, is she for real?’

    As they headed to a break, Piers openly discussed that they would talk to Mariah in the interim about continuing their interview in light of the events and made the decision to postpone their chat to a more appropriate time.
