Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan, 55, is never one to back down from an argument, even when it comes to family so it seems. In another public spat between him and his eldest son Spencer, 27, on Twitter, the ITV star admitted life at home and around the dinner table is “lively”.

Grow a pair and do your bit

Piers Morgan

And if his offspring share any of his defining characteristics, we don’t doubt it!

Piers has made a name for himself for his “argumentative” nature and controversial opinions, often speaking his mind on issues others may find difficult to talk about and take sides on.

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic he has been especially vocal, as he continues to call on the government for accountability and for the public to follow the rules to keep others safe.

But there are plenty of people who have varied opinions about the current crisis that’s plunged the UK into the second lockdown of 2020.

And among them is his eldest son Spencer.

It all began after the GMB host sent out a scathing tweet aimed at those who are blatantly ignoring lockdown rules.

“Imagine telling your grandkids in 40 years when they asked what you did in the War on Covid: ‘Well, I refused to wear a mask, refused to take a vaccine & ignored lockdown rules – putting many lives at risk!’” he typed furiously.

It wasn’t long before Spencer weighed into the conversation, giving his slightly different opinion on the public health emergency.

He replied: “Imagine telling them the world collapsed because of a 99.5% survival rate virus.”

While some backed his sly swipe towards his dad, Piers didn’t hold back with his response.

“The world’s fine. Only thing that’s collapsed is the bottle, resolve & resilience of many younger people who think this virus ‘isn’t our problem’.”

He added: “Grow a pair and do your bit.”

Watching from the sidelines fans enjoyed the father-son feud, with one commenting: “Dinner parties at the Morgan household must be absolutely [fire],” accompanied by three flame emojis.

And it appears they’re correct, as Piers replied: “They’re lively….”

It’s not the first time the pair have clashed on social media.

Last week, Spencer responded to a YouGov poll which showed 72 percent of English people backed Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s second lockdown plans, which were put into place on Thursday 5 November.

But Piers told Spencer that no one “wants” the lockdown and he believes the measures are what the country needs to get the virus under control.

Spencer wrote: “Haha. Such BS. Literally not met a person who wants it apart from dad”.

The presenter retorted: “Nobody WANTS a lockdown. But most people, as this poll shows, believe one is now essential to control the virus and save lives.
