Upon seeing the message, the airline playfully quipped back that there was a mix-up in the seating arrangements. "Ooops, seems like we made a mistake there," British Airways responded. "Piers! Any chance you could swap with him?"
So Brad Pitt just got on my @British_Airways plane to London. He's in seat 6F, I'm in 1A. This settles my celebrity status once and for all.
Butland set the record straight about where he was sitting after Morgan alleged he was "somewhere in the back."
"Not that far back, 4A to be precise, had to look at the back of your head for two hours! Thank god I slept!," he tweeted. Morgan wrote back, "My apologies...two rows ahead of Brad Pitt and only three rows behind me. Congrats mate."
BA PLANE UPDATE: Morgan: 1A Anna Wintour:1F Pitt: 6F @JackButland_One Somewhere near the back, appropriately for a goalkeeper.
Morgan doesn't hold back when it comes to calling out stars on his Twitter feed. After this year's SAG Awards, a social media feud erupted between him and Susan Sarandon after he called her cleavage-baring top worn at the awards show "inappropriate."
