Piers Morgan of Good Morning Britain and Jeremy Clarkson of The Grand Tour have had a long history of heated rivalry since the car show presenter punched Piers multiple times in 2004. Over the Chrismass holidays, though, the two have come face to face once again on Clarkson’s ITV quiz show, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire.
While heated and full of jibes from their history together, the two laughed and seemed to enjoy their time raising money for Piers’ chosen charity. But while we talk about Clarkson a lot on Grand Tour Nation, what do Morgan’s fans have to say about the duo after their quiz show results?
Morgan’s donation to his chosen charity is obviously a hot topic and his fans are keen to thank him for his selflessness.
Well done, aww you looked terrified piers, questions are only easy if you know the answers! Good on you for going on and fairplay to you for making up the money, it's hard risking other people's isnt it ,especially when u know the good it could do ,happy christmas x

I for one think Piers is great.. he may have faults but hey .. who the hell hasn't .. great that you topped the money back up ( wether he can afford it or not should not be the issue) it was a lovely gesture… but maybe you should start skiing and watch formula one 😉 😊

Some fans complained about how he played the game, however. It’s easy to complain about something you’ve never done yourself, of course.
So in summary..you asked Jeremy a question you knew the answer to, Rob Rinder(v clever guy) a 50/50 question you knew the answer to& Susanna who knows a LOT of stuff,a question you were certain she wouldn't. If you ever question a football managers tactics again I'll remind you😅

But on top of anything else, fans were happy to see Piers and Jezza in good terms and enjoyed the two media titans joining together.
Piers loved the banter with your buddy and more importantly happy for your kindness in making up the sum for a good course,bravo!

Of course, there are fans that aren’t so happy with Clarkson’s performance on the show, getting a question wrong when he was used as a life line.
Motoring journalist of 40 years doesn't know the longest motorway in the UK.. Jeremy Clarkson and becomes a bigger tool each year.. Owes that charity 7 grand!!

Clarkson looks bored and boring on this show…

Uncomfortable viewing, Clarkson with a big chip on his shoulder. Not a professional host.

It certainly seems as though that while Piers and Jeremy have put their history behind them, at least on TV, some fans of the two are still wielding their pitchforks to defend their favourites. Which side do you stand on? Or are you just glad the drama between them is over?
