Piers Morgan took to social media today to take a cheeky swipe at his former breakfast television rival Dan Walker. The former Good Morning Britain star took aim after the BBC Breakfast host was announced as the eighth contestant taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this morning.

Piers shared a post from the BBC show announcing the news on Twitter, in view of his 7.9 million followers.

“My Christmas just came early….” he gleefully quipped.

Dan said he was excited but “mostly terrified” about his stint on the famous dance floor.

He joked that he is considering going into hiding.

“I am definitely excited, a little bit worried, mostly terrified and a small part of me is considering going into hiding!” he said following today’s announcement.

“My kids have only ever asked me to go on two shows… Saturday Mash Up and Strictly.

“I did Saturday Mash Up this summer so… it’s time to embrace the sequins.”

The 44-year-old father-of-three revealed the news on his show BBC Breakfast.
