Piers Morgan was big enough to offer Liz Hurley an apology after mistakenly claiming her son took her controversial topless photo.
The Good Morning Britain presenter slammed the Royals actress for sharing a ‘thirsty’ photo of herself posing topless in the snow, and believed her 18-year-old son Damian was the one behind the lens.
However, Liz, 55, later revealed it was actually her 80-year-old mother who snapped the racy photo, prompting Piers to somewhat take back his criticism.
‘I want to apologise to Liz Hurley after calling her thirsty,’ Piers told GMB viewers on Wednesday, as Susanna Reid rubbed salt in the wound: ‘Quite right too, you were quite unpleasant to her yesterday.’
Piers’ apology then turned sarcastic as he continued: ‘I’m very sorry, I called her thirsty because the moment the snow came out she ran outside and posed topless and then posted it saying, “How can I resist?” Well of course, how can an attention-seeking narcissist resist such a moment?’
Throwing in a more obvious jab, he added: ‘Her job is stripping off, let’s be honest.’
‘Loose Women had a go at me for criticising the way she looks, she looks fantastic, that’s not the argument. The point is that I inadvertently followed the newspaper lead that it was her son Damian… and he’s a photographer who she said regularly takes all her pictures.
‘That would be really creepy. Getting your teenage son to take your topless pictures in the snow is creepy and weird.
Piers, 55, refused to believe Liz’s mum was the camera person and said tongue-in-cheek: ‘Liz Hurley has an amazing mother who takes brilliant photographs, we’d love to see her portfolio because that’s pretty good that picture.
‘How long did you keep your mother in the freezing snow aged 80 to take that picture? I’m not so sure, do we buy [it]?’
He then asked Susanna: ‘Would your first thought be, I’m gonna run outside, grab my mum who apparently is a secret world-class photographer who we never knew about and get her to take endless topless pictures of me in the snow.
‘Susanna, you wouldn’t do that because you would know it would be creepy as hell. So, I think Liz Hurley you’ve dug yourself an even bigger hole with this one. It wasn’t creepy because it was your teenage son, it was your mother who does your topless outdoor pictures? Weird.’
Piers isn’t the only one with strong feelings about Liz’s controversial photo as Ulrika Jonsson said it was ‘wholly inappropriate’ that it was taken by her mum.
