Ewan McGregor was due to appear on Good Morning Britain today (January 24)... at least, that was until he found out who was hosting it.

The T2 Trainspotting star was supposed to be joining Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on the couch to promote the much-anticipated Danny Boyle sequel, but pulled out at the last minute because of Piers's comments on the Women's March.

The broadcaster was typically outspoken and critical about last weekend's series of protests across the world, and previously quipped that he's "planning a 'Men's March' to protest at the creeping global emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists".

Well, Ewan doesn't seem to agree, and wrote on Twitter this morning: "Was going on Good Morning Britain, didn't realise @piersmorgan was host. Won't go on with him after his comments about #WomensMarch"

Naturally, Piers wasn't about to let it lie. He hit back: "Sorry to hear that @mcgregor_ewan - you should be big enough to allow people different political opinions. You're just an actor after all."

He added later: "A real man would have come on and debated it with me, not run away like a coward."

Co-host Susanna was also saddened by the actor's decision and encouraged him to stand up for his views on air.
