We thought their war of words had been quelled by Piers's son Spencer when he had intervened and sided with J.K by proudly sharing a picture on Twitter of his Deathly Hallows tattoo and matching necklace.

Piers then joked that he was cutting Spencer out of his will, and Spencer posted a photo of himself and a friend about to watch Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and we thought that was that. But alas...

Over to you, J.K...
