Virgin Radio DJ Chris Evans, 39, aimed a jibe at former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 55, on his radio show this morning when he referenced the ITV star’s comments about Meghan Markle in a mock argument with co-host Vassos Alexander, 46. While discussing the Cheltenham Festival, the Virgin radio presenters disagreed over whether they would rollover £250,000 if they had won the large sum. Vassos went on to mock former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 55, when he pretended to “storm” out the studio after Chris yelled at him “I don’t believe you”, following his decision to “let the horse run”.
I actually don’t believe you, I’m doing a Piers Morgan here, ‘I don’t believe you’
Chris explained to his listeners that his co-presenter was theoretically willing to lose the sum at the chance of winning more.
Not believing his friend when he insisted this was the case, the DJ resorted to referencing recent controversies surrounding former GMB presenter Piers to hammer his point home.
Chris stated to Vassos: “I don’t believe you, I don’t believe you.
“I actually don’t believe you, I’m doing a Piers Morgan here, ‘I don’t believe you, it’s all hogwash.'”
He added: “Don’t worry I’m not going to flounce out.”
Vassos warned: “I will,” before the studio broke into laughter.
A series of bangs followed which listeners took to being Vassos pretending to “flounce” out the studio in an outrage.
Addressing his co-host’s mock fury, Chris said: “That wasn’t a flounce that was a storm, you can’t upgrade it to a storm, we weren’t warned.”
Last week Piers shocked GMB viewers after he stormed off the morning show following a debate with colleague Alex Beresford, over his comments about the Duchess of Sussex.
After Meghan opened up to Oprah about having suicidal feelings while pregnant with son Archie, Piers said on GMB: “I’m sorry, I don’t believe a word she said, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe it if she read me a weather report.”
The presenter went on to make the decision to leave the ITV show.
Discussing the scenario that started the argument, Chris told his listeners: “This is over a quarter of a million pounds in your sky rocket [pocket] for a fiver and Vasoss is saying he would roll over.
“I think if it was you and you put a fiver on, I don’t think you would roll over.”
Chris continued: “I think you’re just saying it for dramatic effect on the radio, I don’t think it’s really what you would do.”
Vassos went on to explain: “The 275 had nine to four on yields to 397 and what’s on offer is 511, you’re being blinded by the £275,000 that you potentially have even though you don’t and you’re not seeing the £235,000 that you could win.”

But Chris chided: “Stop being naughty with language, you don’t potentially have it, you have it.”
The pair then got into a fight about the semantics of the language surrounding the bet.
Chris then returned to the pressing issue and started to quiz his co-host over his decision.
He said to Vassos: “Honestly, what would you do?”
His co-host replied with certainty: “I would definitely let the horse run.”
Making the argument more personal, Chris dragged his co-presenter’s spouse into the argument.
He asked: “Okay and when would you tell Caroline about this decision?”
Vassos simply replied: “When I won £511,000 and took her to Barbados to buy an island.”
