Piers Morgan has taken a savage swipe at his wife Celia Walden over her bizarre fashion accessory.

The GMB host is sunning it up with his lover in Saint Tropez, France.

On Thursday the couple appeared to enjoy a day full of sunbathing and relaxing.

And Piers, 55, took the opportunity to make a joke about his wife after asking her to find the pair a beach bag for their day trip.

Celia returned with a bizarrely huge bright pink bag in the shape of a rug, which covered almost the whole of one side of her body.

Celia's bizzare bag caught the attention of Piers' fans

He wrote: "I said get a beach bag, not a bag the size of a beach.."

While he didn't find it too amusing, his followers did.

One penned: "......and yet she wears it so well."

As a second added: "Ooo loving the bag x."

"Well I bet you are all filling it!!! No need for anyone else to carry anything," a third person shared.

A few of Piers' fans hilariously referred to the bag as a "toilet rug".

He bumped into Dame Joan Collins

The controversial host has been staying in France for a few weeks, in luxury accommodation having taken an extended break from his role on the ITV show for the summer.

The star has been sharing snaps from the dreamy summer holiday which he's enjoying with his wife and his sons.

He's been soaking up the sun and relaxing by the poolside, as well as getting stuck into books.

Saint Tropez is proving to be a celebrity hotspot, as Piers bumped into Amanda Holden and Dame Joan Collins on his lavish trip.

GMB continues tomorrow at 6am on ITV.
