Piers Morgan has hit out at David Walliams in a rant directed at famous people he said are nice to his face but then like nasty tweets about him
Piers Morgan has branded David Walliams “the worst” after engaging in some “sly” behaviour on Twitter.
The former Good Morning Britain host, 56, hit out at other celebrities for liking “nasty” tweets about him and thinking he won’t notice, saying that he always spots it.
One of his Twitter followers branded Britain’s Got Talent star David, 49, a “prime culprit” and Piers agreed.
Piers had tweeted: “Always fascinating to see high-profile people that I know quite well ‘liking’ nasty tweets about me… presumably thinking they can do it on the sly and I won’t notice.
“I always notice, and file away for a rainy day.”

One follower replied: ” David Walliams a prime culprit!”
Piers agreed, telling the fan: “The absolute worst.”
In a later tweet, Piers clarified that he doesn’t mind people disagreeing with him, but doesn’t like when they are nice to his face.
“I don’t mind them disagreeing, in fact I like that,” he posted. “I do mind them endorsing nasty little tweets if they’re all over me like a cheap rash when we meet, or ask me for favours.
“Then their treachery gets filed for a rainy day when they least want me to return the ‘support’.”
He went on: “They beg me to do their podcast (to get it traction) or something, telling me how wonderful I am…
“Then I catch them ‘liking’ nasty tweets about me, revealing their true duplicitous colours.”
The Mirror has contacted a rep for David Walliams and is currently awaiting comment.
Piers and David fell out when it was first revealed that the comedian had liked a series of mean tweets about Piers.
Then Piers told The Mirror that he has always refused to return to Britain’s Got Talent because David is still on it.
He said: “I think he is a duplicitous, treacherous, piece of work.
“He is one of those people who says one thing to your face and then sticks it to you behind your back.
“If he was sitting there I wouldn’t be interested. But if he wasn’t sitting there, who knows.”
Piers went on: “I will come back to BGT if the money is right and if they guarantee Walliams gets fired.
“I might even make it a contractual clause that I get to be the one who tells him he is fired.
“If I was him I would stick to writing his children’s books.”
