Phillip Schofield puts Piers Morgan’s book in a rubbish crusher in savage dig at former rival

PHILLIP Schofield put Piers Morgan's book in a rubbish crusher in a savage dig at his former rival.

The This Morning presenter was showing off his new gadget alongside a copy of his book, Life's What You Make It.

Posting on his Instagram Story, Phillip held up Piers' book Wake Up, before trying to put it in the disposal unit.

He captioned it: "New Insinkerator installed, amazing! Apparently it will dispose of almost anything... @PiersMorgan" before finishing it off with the kissing and laughing emojis.

Then the next video showed the cover of the book being crushed in the sink.

He wrote over this video: "Yup, bit chewy, but that works @PiersMorgan".

Phillip documented in his book that he fell out with Piers after he published a biography on the This Morning star in 1992.

The star originally thought Piers was writing a series of articles - until he found out it was a book.

He wrote in Life's What You Make It: "As I think I've said, I save everything, so interesting bits and pieces were hunted down then sent to Piers.

"Nothing appeared in the paper. I was worried he may have lost all my mementos. We asked for them back. Nothing.

"Eventually, unannounced, they arrived safely back at the office. A few weeks later, the unofficial biography he'd written about me, including all the stuff I'd sent him, appeared on the bookshelves.

"I was furious. Not so much that he had written the book, but that he had deceived me.

"We didn't speak for a long time. There were awkward moments: once, the two of us were in a lift for what felt like an endless descent."

However, they eventually mended their relationship with Phillip shook his hand on Test the Nation.
