    Hayley Hughes stunned fans with her dippy nature on Love Island - ranging from not knowing what Brexit is to having no clue where an ear lobe is located.

    Yet it was Piers Morgan's lack of knowledge which garnered red faces on Wednesday morning when he tried to probe the blonde on Pythagoras' theorem on Good Morning Britain - only to get the answer wrong himself. 

    The TV presenter, who has been extremely vocal in his disdain for the ITV2 dating show, was joined by Hayley, Kendall Rae-Knight and Charlie Frederick when he made his gaffe while seemingly mocking the stars of the show. 

    In hilarious scenes, he said to the Liverpool-born beauty: 'Do you know Pythagoras' theorem to the nearest decimal place?' He said: 'I do actually... 3.147' after he was grilled by his co-star Susanna Reid about whether he knew the answer.

    Off-camera, a crew member bellowed: 'That's pi', shortly before he appeared mortified and a clearly overjoyed Susanna said: 'Pythagoras is a triangle!...

    'You just showed yourself up on national television, Piers Morgan'. He appeared to take things well however, as he responded: 'Do you know what's just happened to me? I've just been mugged off haven't I?' 

    After his mishap, Piers said to Hayley: 'I've been making you worldwide famous by showing clips of you. It appears you’ve got a slight problem with geography'.

    Earlier this month, Piers branded the stars of Love Island the 'most stupid people in the world'. He made the remark when referencing a clip of the girls discussing Brexit, a conversation that saw Hayley interject: 'What's that? I seriously don't have a clue.'

    Before showing the moment, Piers told viewers: ‘We have had a debate about the mental abilities of those on Love Island.

    Oh dear: Hayley did not seem to understand what Piers had done wrong as she herself was unaware of what Pythagoras' theorem actually is 

    ‘I think they’re the most stupid people in the world. Susanna thinks they’re moral guardians of the nation and we should all be watching.’

    Susanna then hit back: 'I think they represent real life and you shouldn’t be snobby about whether someone went to university or not.’ 

    Introducing a clip of their Brexit chat, Piers said: ‘Here’s why I’m snobby, they are even more stupid than I thought they were...'

    Having a laugh: She says: ‘I think they’re the most stupid people in the world. Susanna thinks they’re moral guardians of the nation and we should all be watching'

    The short video showed contestant Georgia Steel ask her fellow female Islanders what they thought of Brexit, prompting Hayley to respond: 'What's that? I seriously don't have a clue.' 'It's where we're leaving the European Union,' Georgia explained.

    'So does that mean we won't have any trees?' a worried Hayley then asked. Kendall Rae-Knight then assured her: 'No, we're just not in the European Union.'

    Georgia then quizzed: 'Doesn't it mean it'd be harder to, like, go to, like, Spain and stuff?' Hayley retorted: 'So it'd be harder to go on holidays? Oh, I love my holidays.'
