A FORMER Tory minister refused to take a £1,000 bet with Piers Morgan that Theresa May will still be in power by April.

It comes after the Prime Minister was warned she could be booted out of Number 10 in weeks after he plan to solve the Irish border issue in the Brexit talks backfired spectacularly.

She is now left trying to convince the DUP to come round to her pledge to maintain “regulatory alignment” after we exit the EU or face the deadlock in the talks going on until March.

Amid rumours she could be forced out by Christmas, Owen Paterson refused to take a bet live on Good Morning Britain on whether she would still be in Downing Street by April.

Mr Morgan asked the ex-Northern Ireland Secretary: “Owen, how would you take my £1,000 bet to charity that Theresa May is gone by April as leader?”

He answered: “I can absolutely guarantee nobody in the Tory party wants a leadership contest.”

Mr Morgan, who said the PM was a “dead woman walking”, tried again, stretching out his hand and again offering to donate the money to charity if he was proved wrong and she stays in post.

But Mr Paterson refused to bite, instead asking the GMB host: “I’m asking can you name a single Tory that wants a leadership contest, nobody wants a leadership contest.”

Mr Morgan kept his arm out for a handshake on the bet, however Mr Paterson said: “No, I’m not taking easy bets.”

The conversation moved on, but the presenter refused to let it go, adding: “Well Owen let the record show you did not take my bet, even though you apparently think everyone agrees with you.”

The former Tony Blair spin doctor Alastair Morgan, who was sat next to the MP, chimed in and added: “Had I been advising you Owen – you did the right thing there.”

Mrs May has spoken to the DUP leader Arlene Foster this morning but a source said afterwards that “there is still work to be done”.

Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan planning to cheat in weight loss bet with Alan Sugar

The pair have placed a £5,000 bet on who can shed the most weight, with the loser having to donate the sum to charity.

The wager will be decided on GMB tomorrow when they both hit the scales in front of the nation.

During the show today, Piers, 52, told his co-hosts Susanna Reid, 47,  that he’s “feeling quite lean”.

But he admitted that he is planning to cheat to make sure he doesn’t lose the bet with Lord Sugar, 70.

When asked about the weigh in, Piers said: “I feel quite lean, quite trim.

“We’re going to cheat… fix the scales.”

Susanna helpfully asked him: “Do you want me to lean on the scales [when Lord Sugar is on them]?”

Piers went on to insist that the bet doesn’t seem fair as he is over six foot tall and Lord Sugar is “around four foot three”.

Lord Sugar accused Piers Morgan of piling on weight in their £5,000 charity challenge

He added: “I don’t know if I’ve lost weight. I might have put on, but it could be bone density.

“And muscle weights more than fat.”

The warring duo made a pledge on Good Morning Britain last month, promising that whoever ends up the least slimmed-down by December commits to stump up £5,000 for London Hospital Great Ormond Street.

Yet it seems ITV anchor Piers, who initially weighed in heavier than the Amstrad founder, is falling short.

Taking to the scales in October, Lord Sugar weighed 14 stone 3lbs where as Piers clocked up 16 stone 6lbs, which he said was “about right for my huge frame.”

I’M A Celebrity’s Rebekah Vardy has hit back after claims she bullied campmate Iain Lee – before accusing the DJ of being a “game-player”.

The WAG, who was booted out of the ITV show in a shock eviction last night, broke her silence on today’s Good Morning Britain.

I’m A Celebrity’s evicted contestant Rebekah Vardy has revealed the secret gift campmates gave to Iain Lee

Footie ace Jamie Vardy’s wife was voted by the public to leave the jungle after going up against Saturday’s singer Vanessa White.

Last night, while she admitted she was gutted to leave the camp behind, she was less than happy to see Iain remain, branding him a “game player” in a chat with Extra Camp last night.

Yet today the mum-of-four back-tracked on her comments, claiming she was “under pressure” and they were “out of context”.

Referring to her cutting comments about Iain, Becky added: “I was under pressure.

“That was taken out of context. He and I had some nice conversations in camp.

“I gave him a lot of pep talks.”

Perhaps in a nod to her genuine feelings for her co-star, she revealed campmates presented Iain with a “hard as nails” homemade medal after he battled his fears in a Bushtucker Trial.

Rebekah told how competitors in the ITV show were eager to praise the TalkRadio host for battling his fear of heights in the Space Your Fear challenge.

She said to “dream campmate” GMB host Piers Morgan: “We presented him (Iain) with something for his courage and bravery, and for doing the trial.

“He conquered a powerful fear.

“It was a special home-made medal, a special medal which said ‘hard as nails’.

“We wanted him to know we were proud of him for doing what he did.

“It’s true – don’t laugh!”

During the nail-biting challenge, Iain was blasted across the jungle in a rocket yet clung on to bag some grub for camp.

He told the camera he didn’t want to let his team down, because it felt “humiliating”.

 

Meanwhile, when challenged about Amir Khan and Iain’s strawberry scoffing antics earlier in the series – which saw them munch a Dingo Dollar prize to themselves – it seems she saw the funny side.

She said: “In camp, many of us couldn’t believe it had happened.

“But watching it back it was pretty funny to see Amir dressed as a pussy.”

Meanwhile earlier on GMB, Amir’s dad Sajjid revealed he was “very shocked” at his son’s selfish antics.

Yesterday, we reported how Rebekah told Ant and Dec she’d had “an amazing time” but added: “I’m so glad to get out of there!

She said after her eviction: “It was an amazing experience and something I will never, ever forget.

“It’s harder than I ever anticipated.”

Speaking about what she learned in the camp, she admitted: “I’ve learnt that I’m so miserable and so cranky sometimes and I can give looks that literally kill.”

She then told Ant and Dec that the things she was looking forward to most was “hugging her kids and eating”.

GOOD Morning Britain was almost thrown into chaos as host Susanna Reid SCREAMED during the live show.

Her high-pitched squeal, which came when she was off-camera, caused weatherman Alex Beresford to stop in his tracks as he opened his forecast.

He giggled in surprise, but ever the professional, put aside the drama to continue with the report.

As the camera panned back on anchor Piers Morgan and 46-year-old Susanna, he jokingly suggested she was getting excited about the cricket.

But Susanna confessed her shock was down to realising she’d forgotten her co-presenter’s birthday.

She told viewers: “Apologies if you heard me shrieking in the weather forecast.

Piers Morgan accused Susanna Reid of presenting Good Morning Britain in the nude today

“It’s actually because I said to you (Piers) – I thought we could do a little ‘how much do we know about each other’.

“‘What date’s your birthday’, I said, is it May 5? But it’s actually March 30.”

Piers replied: “Not even the right month” as she admitted: “Completely out.”

Pretending to be offended, he said: “Something died inside me after that.”

We reported how Susanna was equally stunned after Piers earlier flirtily accused her of presenting Good Morning Britain in the nude.

The cheeky host opened today’s show by suggesting Susanna was virtually naked –  due to the colour of her dress.

Mum-of-three Susanna looked stunning in a fitted rose pink office dress with a V-cut neckline.

He quizzed: “Are you actually presenting in the nude?”

Susanna clarified: “This is technically nude, but I’m not in the nude.”

He insisted: “You are presenting in the nude,” as she added: “I’m wearing a dress – I am fully clothed!

“The colour of the dress is nude, or blush pink,” before she quipped: “Or spare YOUR blushes pink!”

Piers giggled and confessed: “There’ll certainly be plenty of blush pink if this carries on.”
