Caitlyn Jenner’s partner Sophia Hutchins has hit out at Piers Morgan, after the Good Morning Britain host pressed her about her relationship with the reality star during a live television broadcast.

The 23-year-old entrepreneur took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday 27 November to brand the controversial media personality “a joke of a journalist” as she explained: “Good Morning Britain, having Piers Morgan is your biggest mistake.

“What a pathetic line of questioning he had for me this morning. Totally not cool,” Hutchins continued.

“I went on to support Caitlyn on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, not deal with stupid bulls*** questions from some jacka** like Piers Morgan.

“Neither of us will ever do your show again. You have shown your true colours. How disappointing,” she added before sharing a link to the “distasteful” interview.

During her appearance on the early morning news show, Hutchins was asked by Morgan how she would “categorise” her and Jenner’s association.

"Is that the opening question, Piers? I think I've described it pretty well,” she snapped back. “At the end of the day, Caitlyn and I are family.”

But Hutchins’s answer wasn’t good enough for Morgan, as he went on to quiz why the pair “weren’t an item.”

"Was that a real question? We have a really special relationship,” Hutchins replied. “I don't think we need to be an item to have a really special relationship so to speak.

“I am here for Caitlyn 1,000 thousand percent and Caitlyn's here for me 1,000 percent. I think the best way to describe our relationship is that we are partners in every sense of the word.

"When it comes to work, absolutely there for each other 100 percent,” she concluded. “When it comes to family and our personal relationship, absolutely there for each other 100 percent and there's no denying it.”

Hutchins previously opened up about how “gut-wrenching” it was to watch Jenner, 70, struggling to adjust to jungle life at first.

“I wanted to call the producers and say no more snakes, no more bugs but we knew what she’d signed up for,” she said, referring to the latter’s breakdown in the Bush Telegraph room.

“When I saw her crying the first night, I was just in shock. Everyone that knows her who I've spoken with was sending me these messages saying, 'Is she okay, this isn't the Caitlyn we know?

“The Caitlyn we know is super excited, super positive, super energetic, rarely sheds a tear,” she continued. “So we were all freaked out by that.”
