Piers Morgan has made an ill-judged joke about all the disgraced characters he has posed with over the years, which left his fans raging.

The controversial Good Morning Britain presenter sparked outrage when he posted a montage of himself posing with five disgraced characters, before they were convicted of sexual offences, to his Twitter page.

Taking to his social media account, the TV host shared a throwback snap of himself posing with former film mogul Harvey Weinstein - who was recently found guilty and charged with rape.

The pair looked very close in the old photo as they grinned at the camera lens.

Piers also shared a snap with disgraced TV personality Rolf Harris, taken from his Piers Morgan's Life Stories series.

Harris was jailed for sex assaults against children in 2014 for five years and nine months.

Also appearing in the montage was former rock star Garry Glitter, who was jailed in 2015 for 16 years.

The black and white snap showed the presenter laughing as Gary pulled a shocked facial expression.

Another picture showed Piers posing alongside disgraced celebrity publicist Max Clifford - who was jailed in 2014 for eight years after a string of indecent assaults against girls and young women.

While Ghislaine Maxwell, who reportedly helped with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, made an appearance on the star's montage.

Piers wrote: "To all those kindly sending me this unedifying photo montage... ....yes, I definitely need to work on my clairvoyant skills."

Fans were left in shock as Piers made a joke about his actions in future after being pictured with the five disgraced characters.

One wrote: "It doesn't look good, you're lucky you don't get arrested for being guilty by association, you're either very naive or have a very poor taste of the company you Keep."

A second penned: "You know, the story of the Apple that never falls away from the tree ..."

"Judge of character, that’s what you need to work on," a third added.
