Piers Morgan taunts his GMB replacement Alastair Campbell after he accidentally announced the Queen had died

PIERS Morgan taunted his Good Morning Britain replacement Alastair Campbell – after he mistakenly announced the Queen had died.

Tweeting a news story about the on-air blunder yesterday the star said the gaffe put his remarks about Meghan Markle in the shade.

He wrote: "I think this puts my disbelief of Princess Pinocchio’s porkies into proper perspective.

"Many congrats @campbellclaret 👏👏."

Piers quit GMB in March after refusing to apologise for saying he didn't believe Meghan Markle's comments about mental health during her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The 56-year-old star also had a dig at Alastair – with whom he has had a simmering feud for years – on Tuesday telling him he's not a proper celebrity.

Former Labour spin doctor Alastair shocked everyone on GMB yesterday when he spoke about the "death of the Queen".

He said: "We've talked a lot about Prince Philip after the death of the Queen."

Moments later, having been made aware of his mistake, he interrupted the chat to say: "Can I just say, Susanna, I think I may have accidentally announced the death of the Queen.

"I meant Prince Philip."

Susanna nodded her head sympathetically, telling him: "People knew exactly what you meant."

Viewers at home were stunned by the incident, and flocked to Twitter to share their reaction, with one asking: "When did the Queen die??"
