If you've been anywhere near Twitter over the past few days, you'll have noticed that things have got a bit heated between controversial Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan and Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling.

Well, we say they got heated; more like J.K Rowling absolutely smashed Piers to pieces with some killer tweets. But now Piers' son, Spencer Morgan, has entered the boxing ring and brilliantly, he's on Rowling's side.

It all started when JK got mischievous on Valentine's Day and posted an excerpt of a highly complimentary article in which she was featured as one of the top 100 British Celebrities who really matter.

Piers, walking right into the sassy author's trap, replied to her tweet, calling it a "priceless humble brag".

The problem was, Piers wrote the excerpt. So he's certainly changed his tune since J.K. publicly vocalised her dislike for him.

Everyone was enjoying the activity over on Twitter, but nobody more so than Spencer Morgan, Piers' very own son, who decided it was his turn to have a say in the matter. And he did so in the most brilliant way, posting a picture of his Harry Potter tattoo with the caption "well this is awkward". Incredible.

And a quick look through Spencer's Instagram profile will reveal that he's a Harry Potter mega-fan. So at least one person in the Morgan family has some sense about them.

Here he is going to see The Cursed Child in London's West End last year:

I solemnly swear that it was bloody fantastic

Oh, and here he is declaring his love for J.K. Rowling permanently by getting his Deathly Hallows tattoo:

Spencer Morgan and the Deathly Hallows. Out now. #TatCity

And here he is with the only reading material he needed last summer, a book by J.K. herself:

Find me a better vibe, I dare you

Piers had no choice to respond to the awkward revelation, posting to Twitter:

Bet that was an awkward family meal round the table when it all kicked off between Piers and J.K. Rowling over Twitter last week.
