Watch Piers Morgan take comedy fall while trying to sit on folding chair at Paddy Power Golf Shootout as fans go wild

PIERS MORGAN left viewers in delight on Friday... after taking a comedy tumble at the charity golf day.

The GMB host was spotted spectacularly falling off his folding chair during the pro-am Paddy Power Golf Shootout - leaving playing partner Andrew Flintoff running off in celebration.

Morgan, 55, was giving it the big one after winning the morning challenge with partner Tommy Fleetwood as big-time sport returned to the UK.

They saw off challenges from teams of Peter Crouch and Paul McGinley, Freddie Flintoff and Andrew 'Beef' Johnston and Jamie Redknapp and Thomas Bjorn.

But Morgan came crashing back down to earth – literally – in the par-3 shootout.

Returning to his seat after scoring five points by knocking one ball on the green, cameras caught the hilarious moment Morgan hit the deck.

And 2005 Ashes hero and Top Gear host Flintoff could not stop laughing.

As he got back to his feet, Morgan was asked by presenter Georgie Bingham if he was OK.

He said: “Thank you very much for checking after I broke my back! Honestly, all this safety today… everybody’s laughing.”

Flintoff added: “I can’t stop laughing at Piers falling off that chair.”

And those watching online were in stitches too.

One said: “Watching Piers Morgan fall over has made lockdown.”

Another tweeted: “Seeing Piers Morgan fall off his chair has undoubtedly been the highlight of the week.”

A fellow user said: “Fully a belter seeing Piers Morgan going flying off his chair and Freddie Flintoff running round p***ing himself.”

Another comment read: “Seeing Piers Morgan falling off his chair in Paddy Power golf is one of the highlights of my lockdown. Cheers Piers (I hope you haven’t broken your back).”

One said: “Piers Morgan falling off his chair is going to win Twitter today.”
