PIERS Morgan has reignited his feud with former GMB weather presenter Alex Beresford.
The Sun columnist has blasted Beresford as a “treacherous little p***k” after the pair fell out over two years ago.
Their feud started over comments made by Piers in the aftermath of Meghan and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
GMB star Alex criticised Piers' take on the explosive interview, which they discussed on the ITV morning show the day after its airing.
Alex's remarks prompted a dramatic exit from Piers, who stormed off the set.
Now in a new BBC interview with Amol Rajan, Piers has rehashed their argument, saying he walked out so he wouldn’t lose his temper.

He said: “I don't mind a guest doing that but I do object to someone who had asked to come on the show, who was on the team, who then makes a very personal attack on me.
“And so at that moment I thought there is two things that are going to happen here.
“Either I’m going to lose my rag and do something I regret – or I’m going to go and walk off.”
After the argument Piers was off-screen for almost 20 minutes, but later returned, slamming Alex for "launching a personal derogatory attack" on someone that he works with.

When asked what would have happened if he had stayed on screen, Piers said: “I don't like think about what I would have done.
“I was certainly looking at him thinking ‘Yeah I better leave the room’.
“Just for the record, I think he was a treacherous little p***k.
“So he can say what he likes about me. He absolutely has a right to his opinion.
“That is my opinion about him.”
During the debate, Alex responded to Piers' claims that he used to talk to Meghan and she "dropped him" once she started dating Prince Harry.
He said: "I understand that you don't like Meghan Markle, you've made it so clear a number of times on this programme, and I understand you've got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle and she cut you off."
But Piers replied: "I'm not having this."
Piers later quit his hosting role after six years, as he refused to apologise for his remarks regarding the Duchess of Sussex.
