Piers Morgan challenges Andrew Tate over his comment on Amanda Holden's bikini Instagram post

Piers Morgan has challenged Andrew Tate over his comments about Amanda Holden's bikini post on Instagram earlier this year.
The 52-year-old mum-of-two wowed fans after uploading a stunning photo of her showering outdoors in a black string bikini.
But Tate replied to the picture, writing: "You are a wife and a mother and you're far past a teenager. There is no need for this post."
Addressing the comments on Piers Morgan Uncensored this evening (20 November), the host said: “You Tweeted a picture of Amanda Holden, very good friend of mine. It's a very harmless picture. She is in a bikini on holiday under a rain shower, looking extraordinarily beautiful.
"And you Tweeted, ‘you are a wife and a mother and you are far past a teenager, there is no need for this post’.
“Why can't a woman of her age, she's just turned 50, why can't a woman of that age actually show off her beautiful body in a nice bikini like that, what is wrong with that?”
Tate responded: “You can call me crazy, you can call me misogynistic, but I think once you reach the ripe age of 50, any woman should not be interested in thirst trapping on Instagram.
"I think she has bigger responsibilities, I am sure she is a very intelligent lady and she has done amazing things.
"She is famous, she is obviously very capable and I think she could do things more interesting than standing around trying to thirst trap on Instagram like she is 18.
"I think she is above it. I wasn't insulting her, I was reminding her that she is actually such a fantastic person, she has done such amazing things in her life and she is so achieved, that she is actually above thirst trapping.
"I was reminding her of her worth, because as a feminist, we are all feminists here, right, we all believe in women empowerment.
"I am reminding her of her worth."
Piers then asked Tate if he was a 'feminist', and he replied: "Sure… taking your clothes off for men on Instagram is not empowering. It's empowering when you say, no man but my husband can see my body.
"That is female empowerment, and I was reminding her of that.
"I was reminding her of her ripe age and her intellect and there is no need for that post.”
This comes after a judge ended the Tate brothers' court ordered house arrest, as the pair are pending trial on rape and human trafficking charges.
