Good Morning Britain presenter Sean Fletcher couldn't resist a cheeky dig at co-star Piers Morgan after being accused of stealing his tie.

The 49-year-old has stepped in for Piers while the controversial host enjoys his six-week holiday.

But Sean's co-host Charlotte Hawkins warned that he could be in "big trouble" after spotting he had taken something of Piers.

Initially, she said: "We were commenting yesterday that you managed to wear Alex [Beresford]'s tie, didn't you?"

"Yeah," he replied. "I think this is meant to be Alex's tie but I don't think it's cool enough."

The camera zoomed in on the crimson tie embroidered with tiny gold diamonds.

Squinting, Alex admitted: "That doesn't look like something I would wear."

"That could be one of Piers' ties," Charlotte pointed out. "You might be in big trouble here!"

Sean placed a hand around his neck as he joked: "It feels a little bit tighter! Actually, it's not because he's got a really big neck, hasn't he?

Sean then pleaded with viewers: "Don't tell him I said that!"

Bit too late, Sean...
