Sharing a press photo from the reunion, which premiered today, the outspoken TV presenter ranted: "Am I the only person in the world who couldn’t care less about this?

"Friends isn’t funny – never has been, never will be."

He savagely added: "Most overrated show in TV history."

Piers' son Spencer, 27, begged to differ, teasing in the comments: "You need a sense of humour to enjoy it."

The comeback was clearly popular with fans, as it promptly racked up thousands of likes.

Another of Piers' followers argued: "You’re entitled to your opinion but you’re wrong."

While a third sighed: "Stop being so miserable, Piers."

One more echoed: "I’m not a fan of Friends but come on man, how can it be overrated?

"It must be one of the most successful shows in history!"

However, some praised the star for speaking up – admitting that they also didn't understand the hype for the hugely popular comedy.

One simply commented: "Nope, I'm with you."

Another gasped: "Wow, for the first time in history I actually cannot believe I am AGREEING with Piers Morgan 🙌😅"
