Piers Morgan has revealed how he once insulted Kate Garraway's husband, as he joked about trying it on with her.

When the Good Morning Britain presenter, 54, heard I'm A Celebrity star Kate was marrying Derek Draper he emailed her to make fun.

Piers told her: "If I'd known the bar was that low, I'd have had a crack myself."

He claimed that Kate found the comment hilarious and even put the quote on the menu cards when she married former Labour Party advisor Derek in 2005.

Wrting his Event column, Piers explained: "It's been no surprise to see my GMB colleague Kate Garraway being such a trouper on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

"She's always been a great laugh on and off camera, and more importantly, has always been able to laugh at herself."

Derek supported Kate every step of the way while she was in the jungle.

But he admitted he's not comfortable with some of the seedy attention she's getting from viewers.

There has even been a Twitter account set up dedicated to her boobs, created after the 52-year-old stripped down to her bikini in the jungle shower.

Derek told the Daily Mail : "Don't tell me what that Twitter account is called, because I haven't seen it and I'm not sure I want to know."

He admitted that knowing people are posting "lewd" close-ups of his wife is a "weird experience".

Kate became the ninth star to leave I'm A Celebrity last night, narrowly missing out on a place in tonight's final.
