Piers Morgan has slammed "hopeless" Ellen Degeneres after announcing Good Morning Britain will have a special episode in LA.

The outspoken presenter believes the host is "hopeless" at her job, and wants to see Ricky Gervais hosting the awards show after a controversial stint hosting the Golden Globes.

But this came after the announcement that the show would be broadcasting live from the red carpet, with Spice Girl Mel B, Perez Hilton and actress Jane Seymour helping with the coverage, as well as showbiz reporter Ross King.

Susanna Reid pointed out that there was no host at the show, to which Piers replied: "That’s great, I’m ready.
