Piers Morgan has responded to criticism from I’m A Celebrity’s Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘partner’ Sophia Hutchins.
The 23-year-old was not happy with her treatment during an interview with Piers on Good Morning Britain, branding his questioning “distasteful” when he asked about her relationship with reality star Caitlyn.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has previously said that her relationship with Sophia is not romantic and she hit out at Piers for asking “b******t questions” during a live interview earlier this week.
Piers has now hit back at Sophia’s rants telling her to “get over herself”.
During the interview on ITV, Piers asked Sophia about her sex life with Caitlyn: “So, there’s no hanky panky then?”
Sophia laughed at the time but by the end of the eight-minute interview, she was not quite so happy with how it was going.
Later in the week, Sophia appeared on Loose Women to show her support for Caitlyn’s jungle adventure.
She admitted then that her relationship with Caitlyn is not romantic as there is a 47-year age gap between the pair.
Speaking on the show, Sophia said: “I would say that we are partners in every way, that’s what I’ve said for a long time.
“We do business together, I still manage her career while running my own company.
“We have dogs together, we live together. Really, I think it comes down to that we are family at the end of the day. I think that’s been a really special connection I don’t think you find with a lot of people.
“We have such a big age difference, so there’s not really a romantic sense to that relationship which I’ve said before as well.”
Hours later Sophia was not so happy and ranted on social media: “Good Morning Britain, having Piers Morgan is your biggest mistake. What a joke of a journalist he is.
“What a pathetic line of questioning he had for me this morning. Totally not cool.
“I went on to support Caitlyn on I’m A Celebrity not deal with stupid b******t questions.
“Neither of us will ever do your show ever again. You have shown your true colours yet again.
How Sophia reacts to Piers comeback is yet to be seen but it could be that this is not the end of the spat.
