CONTROVERSIAL TV star Piers Morgan has branded an MSP a 'thick ginger turd' in a row over historic prime minister Winston Churchill.

Whipping up interest ahead of tomorrow's Good Morning Britain, Piers took to Twitter to slam Ross Greer, Green MSP for West Scotland.

But Ross was having none of it, coming back swinging with a deft reference to the phone tapping scandal.

At the weekend, Ross tweeted about Sir Winston, calling him a "white supremacist mass murderer," which caused a stooshie on the social media site.

Now Ross has been invited on Good Morning Britain to defend his position and Piers seems very much looking forward to it.

Unperturbed, Ross replied

It should be an interesting debate, with even actor Ricky Gervais getting excited.

No pressure, Ross... but we'll all be watching.
