Piers appeared to take particular issue with the fact that PETA has the word ‘pet’ included in its name despite the calls to end the row. 

As the fracas began to erupt, Piers said: ‘No you can answer my question, it’s my show!’ before Susanna said: ‘Am I not allowed to take part in this conversation?!’

Following the row, Twitter erupted with praise for the star as many insisted that it was indeed ‘ludicrous’ that the calls were in place.

Hitting back while laughing, Jennifer said: ‘It’s an acronym. We’re not planning on changing it’, yet Piers was quick to hit back: ‘It’s got pet in it. It’s literally called PETA.’

Piers then insisted Jennifer’s frequent laughs were due to the fact she herself knew how ridiculous she was being and lashed out at the star.
