Piers Morgan and Chelsea Handler became embroiled in a bit of a spat on live TV this week after the comedienne labelled the newsman a "terrible interviewer".

Morgan and Handler face off on TV

The Chelsea Lately star was a guest on Piers Morgan Live and the chat turned into a war-of-words after Handler criticised the former tabloid editor's interviewing skills.

The blonde funnywoman, who interviews guests on her own talk show, told the host: "You can't even pay attention for 60 seconds. You're a terrible interviewer," promoting Morgan to retort, "Well you just weren't keeping my attention... What is your problem?"

The exchange became heated as Handler fought back, adding: "That's not my problem, this is your show. You have to pay attention to the guests that you invited on your show. It doesn't matter how interesting I am. You signed up for this job."

Handler then took a swipe at Morgan's show, which is going off-air soon after being axed by network bosses, adding: "Maybe that's why your job is coming to an end," prompting Morgan to exclaim, "Wow!".

After the interview, Morgan sent Handler a message via Twitter, adding: "If I'm such a 'terrible interviewer'... how come everyone's now tweeting & debating our interview... mwah x."
