PIERS Morgan was disastrous as a weather presenter on today’s Good Morning Morning Britain.
The star, 54, took over from Laura Tobin – but ended up giving the wrong update, leaving fans at home in hysterics.
Piers was convinced he could do a better job at reading the weather than Laura, but he failed to spot that there was a hurricane heading towards Bermuda.
He then told fans that the weather was going to be “great all week” – which apparently isn’t the case.
Those at home couldn’t get enough and took to Twitter to make their feelings known.
One wrote: “Piers Morgan doing the weather… It was the best weather forecast I’ve ever seen!”
Another said: “He is good but not good enough, Laura is top weather lady. Sorry Piers!”
A third quipped: “@piersmorgan shame on you for ruining the weather. Surely you of all people know the correct term is SCORCHIO!”
During the same show, Piers accused co-host Susanna Reid of “fat-shaming” people – and then pretending not to.
He argued that harsh jokes about someone’s weight can motivate them to slim down.
He was disagreeing with Gavin and Stacey star James Corden who made an emotional plea to American host Bill Maher to stop encouraging fat-shaming after he argued it should make a “comeback”.
“Fat-shaming only does one thing, it makes people feel ashamed,” said James.
“And shame leads to depression, anxiety and self-destructive behaviour like over eating.”
In a debate on today’s show, Susanna kicked it off by saying: “I think fat-shaming is a horrible term and a horrible thing to do.”

She was then abruptly cut off by Piers who argued: “You do it to me all the time.
“You do it to me on a weekly basis, you fat-shame me, literally.
“And there you are saying ‘oh that’s awful, I would never do that’ after you say ‘you big timber barrel’.”
Susanna denied his accusations, adding: “I literally do not do that.”
Piers later fumed: “If someone says you need to lose to weight they can do it kindly or not kindly
Piers added: “We’ve become a society now where we don’t tolerate morbid obesity, we celebrate it.
“Stop celebrating being massively overweight.
“I don’t know how you get people to lose weight unless you say, come on. Enough.”
