Piers Morgan was left with his tail between his legs after he tried to begin a Twitter spat with Madonna.
The queen of pop officially joined the social networking site this week and chat show host Piers sent her this message: "Welcome to Twitter. You're still banned from my show. Love Piers."
But the former America's Got Talent judge was soon eating his words when Madonna's manager Guy Oseary quickly retorted.
He posted an invitation which Piers sent out to the singer in October 2011 to his UK show Life Stories.
An unrepentant Piers replied: "Madonna has only been banned from my CNN show, not my UK show, which sent that invite. But I'm now banning her from that too."
The former journalist has previously said he didn't want to interview Madonna because he found her "boring".
Madonna's representatives responded by saying: "She doesn't even know who he is."
