Piers Morgan, 55, teased Good Morning Britain viewers they were going to get an exclusive first-look at his Spitting Image puppet at the end of today’s show. Those watching at home were on the edge of their seats to see how the host would react to his doppelganger and it’s fair to say he was shocked at the image before him, stating it bore “no resemblance” to him. However, the ITV presenter was left lost for words when he got to speak to the man who was impersonating him, Luke Kemper.

The celebrity impersonator sat down with Piers and Susanna Reid, 49, to explain just how he’d managed to mimic the host’s voice.

“We started working on Spitting Image about a year ago and they were working out all the different characters that were going to be used

“And they said, ‘Look Luke, we want you to have a go at Piers Morgan,’ and I couldn’t turn up a chance to have a go at Piers.

“So, then we were watching Good Morning Britain every morning and it was one interview – it must have been a while ago – because it was with a Tory representative.

“And you kept saying, ‘You can spin it any way you like,’ and ‘You’re talking a lot of flannel’,” Luke continued.

Luke then put the host in his place as he said: “As soon as I got those sentences I just thought I’ve got you down.

“So, I don’t care if you don’t think if it sounds like you because we’re the ones with the power,” the comedian joked.

The presenter was left lost for words before bursting into hysterics at the impersonator’s impression of him.

Discussing his interest for the show, Piers added: “I’ve always loved Spitting Image – I’ve always craved having my own puppet.”

Whilst a third commented: “The resemblance is uncanny. But you always going to be on the show 100 percent.”

“Best you’ve ever looked, Piers. Actually quite flattering,” a fourth remarked, to which a fifth posted: “That was just brilliant, very accurate.”

Spitting Image will be airing on Britbox from October 3, 2020, with a number of other famous faces being impersonated.

As well as taking aim at Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 55, President Donald Trump, 74, will also be mocked.

Fellow celebrities also gave their verdict on Piers’ puppet with Gary Lineker, 59, taking to Twitter to comment.

The Match of the Day host wrote: “The first time I can recall a spitting image puppet to be actually quite flattering, @piersmorgan.”

Luke also posted on the social media platform after his appearance on the show, adding: “So. Slightly annoyed how much @piersmorgan is enjoying all this.

“Very excited and fired up to be playing Piers in @SpittingImage!” the impersonator continued.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
