It all kicked off after the presenting duo branded Piers a 'snowflake' on Twitter
Ant and Dec are currently embroiled in a Twitter spat with Piers Morgan, after they retweeted an article about him 'raging' at them following their jibe about him on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
It all started when the presenting duo poked fun of Piers on the launch episode on Sunday night when introducing contestant Kate Garraway. When Dec said that she would be facing a 'huge challenge', Dec quipped: “But before she goes back to work with Piers Morgan, she’s got three weeks in the jungle!”
And, during his appearance on GMB yesterday morning, Piers said: "It took Ant and Dec about three seconds (to mention me)." He then mimicked Ant's accent.
Susanna Reid then added: "They couldn't afford you so they mention you at every opportunity."
Ant and Dec then retweeted an article about the feud, saying: "Snowflake" alongside a laugh-crying emoji.
Piers then hit back with: "At least I have my own Twitter account & don't have to share one with my mate.", to which Ant and Dec retorted: "Oh yeah? Well our dads are bigger than your dad. Grow up you big wally!".

Ant and Dec are currently in Australia presenting the new series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! together for the first time in two years, as Holly Willoughby stepped in last year while Ant took time of TV work.
Ant recently revealed that he's 'very excited' to be back presenting with his best friend.
He told the Mail Online: "I’m very, very excited about getting back on the show, I missed it last year. It’s a brilliant place to work, a brilliant part of the world to be in and I’m back with my best friend. I can’t wait.
"This is our 19th series. We’ve been privy to a few of the names that are taking part this year. We’re very excited as it’s one of the best casts ever."
Dec recently admitted that he thought he'd 'lost' Ant when he was arrested for drink driving.
Speaking on their ITV show Ant & Dec’s DNA Journey, Dec said: "It has been a tough couple of years and it has tested the bond we have shared since we were 13."
He added: "I was incredibly angry at the start, so angry. Disappointed that he didn't ever come to me and say 'I am struggling, I need you,' because that is what I would do if the shoe was on the other foot. And he never came to me and that hurt me a lot."
