Piers Morgan has shared the details of a harsh text that Holly Willoughby sent him in response to his suggestion that they host GMB together.

Piers Morgan has spilled the contents of a text he received from Holly Willoughby (opens in new tab) in response to his suggestion that they host Good Morning Britain together.

Holly, who is currently enjoying her summer break from This Morning, made an unexpected return (opens in new tab) for a heartbreaking reason last week. And despite enjoying her holidays, Piers has interrupted her relaxing break to test her reaction to the latest TV proposition.

In his Daily Mail column this week, Piers Morgan text Holly Willoughby after he read the cover of Woman magazine (opens in new tab) which suggested they team up to host Good Morning Britain. The headline read, "Holly & Piers – can they save GMB?" In his message, he joked, 'I want the biggest dressing room.'

To which Holly, who hosts This Morning with Phillip Schofield (opens in new tab) brutally replied, 'You can have it. I won't be there.' Ouch.

Suggesting that she won't be leaving her spot on the sofa anytime soon, despite landing an exciting new job (opens in new tab) away from the show.

But seemingly unhurt by her response, Piers told his readers, 'I wouldn’t hold your breath for this particular TV dream team.'

Piers has been off-screen since he dramatically quit GMB (opens in new tab) over a row with weather presenter Alex Beresford about Meghan Markle.

There's always been a bit of rivalry between Good Morning Britain and This Morning - especially when it comes to National Television Awards (opens in new tab) (NTAs) wins.

Piers Morgan sensationally called for the NTA's to be axed last year after he claimed they were a 'fix' when certain shows and presenters scooped the same awards.

This Morning walked away with the best live magazine show award - and has done so for 17 years running, not giving its rivals such as Good Morning Britain so much as a look in.

This Morning, Holly Willoughby,

You could say the pair have a love-hate relationship - with Piers Morgan having previously mocked Holly's 'squeaky clean' appearance on the ITV daytime show and for winning more awards than him.

But Holly's latest response speaks volumes about the future, as she rules out working with Piers loud and clear!
