Kerry Katona has been a regular fixture on the This Morning sofa over the years, talking about her ups and downs.
But in her latest column in new magazine, the mum-of-five claims that host Phillip Schofield is simply no match for breakfast telly interrogator Piers Morgan.
"I was glued to the US election coverage last week, especially Piers Morgan on GMB,'' says Kerry.
"He has me in stitches, but you can tell he knows what he’s talking about. Going in on Nigel Farage – and not letting up – I couldn’t stop laughing!"

But after praising newspaper editor turned presenter Piers, who spars every morning with co-host Susanna Reid, Kerry claimed that potentially ITV's biggest daytime star – Phillip Schofield – just doesn't compare when it comes to putting the boot in!
"Then I turned over to This Morning to see Phillip Schofield trying the same technique on his election guest. He couldn’t quite pull it off, even though he was trying to be all knowledgeable. Maybe leave the politics to Piers, Phil!"

Of course fans will known that Kerry has a chequered history when it comes to appearances on ITV's flagship daytime show. Back in 2008 when she was interviewed by Phillip and his then co-host Fern Britton, viewers claimed afterwards that Kerry appeared to be drunk.
But Kerry hit back, explaining the real reason for her slurred speech.
"As you know I've got bipolar. I went on the show and this is what happened.
"The medication I was on was when I was pregnant with Max, it was a really strong dose.
"I carried on taking that same drug once he was born but it affected my speech. Because my speech was slurred, people actually think I was drunk on the show."
Kerry, who’s mum to Molly, 19, Lilly-Sue, 17, Heidi, 13, Maxwell, 12, and Dylan-Jorge, five, went on to Good Morning Britain in 2018, and discussed the infamous TV interview with Piers and Susanna, following her split from George Kay, her youngest daughter's late dad.
She said: "Honestly for me, going through a separation, being on my own and learning to love myself and being off my bipolar medication has all helped me!"
And while Kerry said that she'd been feeling fine during the breakfast show appearance two years ago, she admitted that bouncing back career wise wasn't easy.
"It destroyed my career," she said. "For so long the mental health stigma was pure taboo and that appearance was all down to my bipolar medication. I'm still getting TV companies to trust me again."
