Piers Morgan’s chat with Caitlyn Jenner one of the most fascinating Life Stories yet

Alongside the quips about make-up and wolf whistling there was a frankness you seldom see in celebrity interviews these days

Over at Life Stories tonight Piers Morgan was busy reading out a quote that had caught his eye prior to the recording.

“It’s this silly and useless lump of skin that irritates the hell out of me.”

No, Piers hadn’t been leafing through his latest viewer feedback forms from Good Morning Britain .

He was simply quoting from Caitlyn Jenner’s memoirs in the hope of turning the conversation back towards a particular anatomical difference between her body and that of her former self, 1976 Olympic decathlete champion Bruce. And you had to admire Piers’ bravery/stupidity.

Caitlyn put Piers in his place at the start of the interview

When he’d first tried broaching the subject at the very start of the interview Caitlyn had put him so firmly in his place I genuinely feared she was about to pull the plug on the entire evening.

That would have been a shame. This was one of the most fascinating Life Stories yet.

Caitlyn’s is a story she has clearly grown used to discussing in public

Having decided a long time ago that my life did not need the Kardashian sisters’ circus in it, I wasn’t really clued up on the full story of their dad/stepdad Bruce’s transition into Caitlyn.

It’s a story Caitlyn has clearly grown used to discussing in public though.

Caitlyn was open and frank throughout

You only had to witness her playing up to the studio audience with one or two well-worn anecdotes.

However, alongside the quips about make-up and wolf whistling there was a frankness you seldom see in celebrity interviews these days.

Jenner played up to the studio audience

That said, my favourite bit was still Piers enquiring, with genuine curiosity, “How do you do a facelift with glue?”

So maybe he had been reading his feedback forms after all.
