Piers has also spoken to boxer Tyson Fury.

But this week he announced perhaps his most controversial guest so far – the Taliban.

The TV host interviewed Suhail Shaheen, a spokesman for the Afghanistan regime, on his TalkTV show yesterday evening.

However, not everyone was impressed by the interview.

Comedian Ricky Gervais was asked his opinion on Piers talking to the Taliban.

One fan wrote: ‘@rickygervais what do you think about @piersmorgan interviewing the taliban tonight? #disgusting.’

Responding in typically droll fashion, Ricky replied: ‘I’ve lost all respect for them.’

Piers Morgan has shared a clip of the interview Mr Shaheen on his Twitter account, which is embedded in this article.
