Good Morning Britain viewers were left wanting to throw their television at Piers Morgan today after he said women shouldn't complain about being forced to wear heals at work.

The segment - about dress code discrimination - included a debate with Nicola Thorp, who was sent home from work for not wearing heels.

Nicola's parliamentary petition (asking for it to be made illegal for companies to require women to put on high heels at work) received more than 150,000 signatures last year.

But Piers was adamant that making women wear heels was not sexist, comparing it to men wearing a tie and - yes, he actually said this - having to shave their beards.

"Is it sexist for the company to say, 'We want you to look professional and glamorous and to look WHOA'?" Piers asked Nicola.

Nicola said that women shouldn't be forced to look "glamorous" or "sexy". They should only be expected to look "professional".

But Piers wasn't done embarrassing himself.

"If I was unshaven, somebody would tell me to shave, and it would be a requirement for my job," he said.

"I get the point you're making and I don't think women should be forced to do anything, but I think for certain jobs and certain positions, I don't think it's massively unreasonable for them to say, 'We don't want you to wear flats'."

Susanna Reid chimed in, arguing: "What's the line between 'smart' and 'glamorous'... and then 'glamorous' and 'sexy'?"

Piers even tried to bring up the "reverse sexism" argument in an attempt to justify what he was saying.

"If I started coming in [wearing] high heels, somebody would say to me, 'Piers, I have a bit of a problem with that. Can you stop wearing high heels?' That would be reverse sexism," he said.

Nicola replied: "That would be reverse sexism, but unfortunately, we - as always - have been the ones that are disadvantaged, and we're the ones who are trying to get up to your level. We don't want to bring you down to ours."

"I'm not sure when you've got a British Prime Minister who's a woman that you are as disadvantaged as perhaps you would like people to think," Piers countered.

Nicola said: "You think because we've got a British female Prime Minister, sexism is over?
