Susanna Reid told off Piers Morgan for calling her his “wife” after the pair got into a dispute about a bin.
Morgan irritated his Good Morning Britain co-host after he had the rubbish bin from under their desk removed.
Reid – who is the only one who used the bin – told viewers that the presenter had told her: “Why didn’t you do what any normal wife would do, identify the problem and then solve it?”
Morgan described Reid’s retelling as “a sexist interpretation”.
He said: “Any normal wife who had a situation where something that she used exclusively was annoying her partner, would do what any nice, decent caring spouse would do and move an offending, irritating item.”
Reid replied: “I’ve got an idea of moving an offending, irritating item…”
She added: “Can I just point out, I’m not your wife!”
“You’re my TV wife,” Morgan hit back.
“You didn’t say TV wife!” Reid said.
