Piers Morgan blasts ‘creepy’ David Beckham for kissing his daughter on the lips

Piers Morgan has blasted "creepy" David Beckham for kissing his daughter on the lips.

The England legend has sparked a fierce debate after posting a sweet photo of himself and Harper, seven, sharing a peck on the lips at a London ice rink.

Outspoken Piers, who has been quite vocal on Twitter about his opinion, didn’t hold back on today’s Good Morning Britain.

Laying into Beckham, Piers claimed it was "weird" that the former footballer was kissing his daughter on the lips at her age.

He also slammed Golden Balls for posting the photo on Instagram, which he claims opens it up to public scrutiny.

Stunned Piers said: "This is weird. Everything about David Beckham is weird."

Co-host Susanna Reid insisted it was a "loving" snap, but Piers claimed it was "quite creepy".

He said: "David Beckham obviously posting pictures of his children, whilst then serving the right to respect their privacy. There he is kissing his daughter on the lips.

"I’m sorry, it got a big furore on social media, it’s just weird. Who does that? Who kisses their kids on the lips?"

He also lashed out at Rebecca Vardy, who hit back at Piers on Twitter by admitting she also kisses her kids on the lips.

"Rebecca Vardy ‘pumped’ up," said Piers. "Piped up, saying she does it with her kids. I was suddenly aware there is a group of people out there who think it is normal."

Piers was met with strong opposition from co-hosts Susanna and Charlotee Hawkins.

Susanna said: "Just let them. Honestly I have no issue. Just kiss your kids however you like.

Speaking about her own daughter, Charlotte added: "She kisses me on the lips. She’s only three. "

Piers confessed that his sons get a firm handshake, the "50 Cent shoulder thing" or a "full manly hug".

On the issue of posting the pic, Piers said: "They want their kids to be famous and then they complain about their privacy."

Finally in agreement, Susanna added: "I just have an issue with posting it. If you post it then you’re up for the scrutiny."

Later in the show, Piers spoke to Peter Andre about the kiss and ended up giving him a snog on the lips.

Good Morning Britain viewers were divided as they took to Twitter to debate the kiss.

One viewer said: "@piersmorgan You’re wrong… David beckham can kiss his daughter because it’s family."

Another agreed: "Your so warped at times @piersmorgan I still kiss my mum on the lips and I’m 27!"

However, a third back Piers: "It is very weird… I agree the only person you should kiss on the lips is your partner"
