Holly Willoughby had the best comeback for Piers Morgan after he commented on her outfit

Holly Willoughby had the best comeback for Piers Morgan after he passed comment on her outfit.

During today's episode of Great Morning Britain, Holly and co-host Philip Schoefield made a brief appearance to chat about what was coming up on the show.

Piers is known for his cutting remarks and he never fails to hold back when it comes to making a controversial comment.

Today was no different and in fairness to Holly, she was more than able to stand her ground.

Commenting on the TV presenter's outfit of a blue jumper and black skirt, Piers said that her "spring wardrobe" had arrived and Holly's response was nothing short of perfection.

She simply said "thank you Piers, that's the important thing right now".

YES, Holly.

In the midst of a global pandemic, you would think that Piers might refrain from making smart comments but it would appear not.

Clearly unsure how to respond, Piers simply said "whatever gets us through right now" - nice try but it's definitely a case of Holly 1, Piers 0.

Today's comment comes after Boris Johnson announced a three-week lockdown for the UK.

The Prime Minister said that people should work from home where possible and people gathering in groups of two people, excluding the people they are living with, could be fined.

All non-essentials shops will be closed, including clothing and electronic stores and other premises including libraries, playgrounds and outdoor gyms, and places of worship. All events will be cancelled, including weddings, baptisms and other ceremonies, but excluding funerals.

Further measures are expected to be announced for Ireland later today as Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Minister for Health, Simon Harris, meet with the National Public Health Emergency team. This is likely to include further recommendations for social distancing with those set to be announced imminently.
