Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid begged her co-stars Piers Morgan and Charlotte Hawkins to tone down their catty comments during Tuesday's show.

The ITV star decided to try and intervene after the duo made a series of cutting digs at each other.

Susanna, 49, admitted she was so surprised she thought a clash had occurred at the morning meeting.

Susanna said: "Have you two had a tiff off air?

"It feels like there is something brewing, did I miss something?

"Now you two calm down."

Returning after a short break, Susanna went on to reveal how Charlotte had lost it behind the scenes.

Susanna Reid asked Piers and Susanna to calm down

Susanna said: "I do wonder what happened to Charlotte Hawkins.

"She threw her script in the break."

Shrugging it off, the blonde babe replied: "If only my throw had been better.

"I did actually need those notes so I had to go and get them."

GMB bosses then played a clip of a sheepish Charlotte walking over and picking up her stack of papers.

Charlotte Hawkins admitted she thought Piers was on a mission to antagonise her

Turning to Piers, Charlotte added: "You're on one of those missions to antagonise me."

Laughing, the former newspaper editor hit back: "I didn't get much sleep last night.

"I had this weird cheese last night and it gave me funny dreams."

Taking to Twitter to comment on the clash, one GMB viewer commented: "Charlotte and Piers Morgan are like squabbling siblings."

Another added: "Haha Piers Morgan brightens my day up... love him #GMB."

Meanwhile, a third continued: "Charlotte Hawkins and Susanna Reid are Goddess like.

"Their levels of toleration are on a whole other level. How they put up with Piers Morgans patter on a daily basis is beyond me. Hats off ladies."

A fourth joked: "Charlotte is gonna batter piers #newsgate."
