Piers Morgan’s son has accused his outspoken father of ruining any chances of a romance with US pop superstar Ariana Grande.

Spencer Morgan called out the Good Morning Britain presenter after he became embroiled in a Twitter spat with Grande and her mother over his claims some female singers use “sex” and “nudity” to sell records.

Grande tweeted Piers, detailing her hopes he will find “other ways to go about making yourself relevant than to criticize young, beautiful, successful women for everything they do”.

Spencer shared the post, tweeting: “Ahh ffs there go my chances.”

Shutting down his tweet, Piers replied: “I don’t think it was exactly a home run before I got involved..”

Piers’ spat with Grande kicked off after he hit out at Little Mix for “using sex to sell records” and targeted “hypocrite” Ellen DeGeneres for flashing up pictures of naked torsos in celebration of International Men’s Day.

Grande defended the stars, tweeting: “Ellen is an incredible & kind human being.. I use my talent AND my sexuality all the time because I choose to. Women can be sexual AND talented. Naked and dignified. It’s OUR choice & we will keep fighting till people understand. I say this w all due respect but thank u, next (sic).”

Piers, who had been arguing in a back-and-forth with Grande’s mother Joan, replied: “Hi Ariana! How lovely to hear from you so soon after your mother. Of course, women can do what they like – but if they/you use nudity to sell records to impressionable young female fans, I'll continue to call them/you out on it. All due respect, but thank YOU. Next...”

He then invited her to join him on Monday morning’s Good Morning Britain to “settle this like mano-to-womano”.

Piers earlier this week targeted Jesy Nelson after she called him a “silly t***” live on BBC Radio One for his remarks about Little Mix.

Piers accused her of “letting herself down” and invited her to discuss the feud on his ITV breakfast show.

Nelson posted a near-naked snap of herself hours later, sparking a furious response from the broadcaster who compared her to a “grim” advert on an adult dating website.
