Jeremy Clarkson and Piers Morgan form an unholy union, take equally unholy selfie
The photographic evidence tweeted by one Twitter follower noted a "serious disturbance in the force"
It’s the day many hoped they’d never live to see – two of the nation’s favourite enemies standing side-by-side, red faced and reconciled, after years of thoroughly entertaining mutual scorn.
Sadly, that moment was very much a reality, if the photograph tweeted by one follower is to be taken as any sort of evidence.
“Be honest @piersmorgan @JeremyClarkson, how hammered were you guys?” @kymi tweeted.
“Alcohol was consumed...” Piers Morgan responded, proudly retweeting the photograph.
Jeremy Clarkson later retweeted the same image, this time posted by an observant follower who noted: “There has been a serious disruption in the force.”
The pair have – up until now – enjoyed a caustic at best relationship in the public eye.
The pinnacle of their disdain came after the Top Gear star hoofed the former editor of The Mirror in the face at a showbiz party, an account of which you can see Clarkson regaling Michael Parkinson with in the video below.Indeed, Clarkson took great delight when Morgan was axed from his talkshow on CNN.
In his Sunday Times column, he wrote: "I heard that he was going to be dropped about six months ago.
"And have been sitting here for all of that time, loving his stupid Twitter boasts about his huge fame and lavish lifestyle, knowing that he didn't know what I knew. This was a show, remember, that was being aired round the world. Billions had the ability to watch it but few did.
"In fact, Morgan attracted a global audience smaller than the BBC daytime show Cash in the Attic. He's trying to argue his CNN show failed because the Americans didn't take kindly to his misguided attempt to spark a debate on gun control. Nonsense. His show failed because the viewers hated him. Everyone hates him.
"And that's a big problem when you are trying to play the fame game. You can upset some of the people some of the time and survive - thrive even. But if you upset all of the people all of the time, you will fail - and he has.
"And I couldn't help but notice that as the news broke, it stopped raining and the sun came out."
Similarly, Morgan was only to happy to call for Clarkson’s sacking from the BBC, after footage of him appearing to mumble a racist term emerged.
"If this N-word allegation is true, @JeremyClarkson is TV toast, surely?," he wrote on Twitter.
"Ron Atkinson was fired by @ITV for using the N-word. Don't see how the BBC can avoid firing @JeremyClarkson if he did the same."
One shudders to think of the level of trolling the pair could achieve combined into one morally vacuous media Megazord.
