Susanna went on to compare her work enviroment with Piers, 55, to Ben Shepherd, 46, who she works with later on in the week.

She continued: "Ben Shepherd is much more like a warm hug, whereas Piers Morgan is like sitting next to a picushion.

"We do fight like Punch and Judy, verbally. We're sparring all the time."

The journalist previously explained she had to take a step back from social media after it left her at "breaking point".
