    Ever had a friend on social media you wish would just go away? Or...do you have an annoying coworker you just can't escape?

    "Good Morning Britain" co-host Susanna Reid feels your pain.

    Reid, who co-hosts the show with conservative British TV host Piers Morgan, took a well-aimed shot at Morgan on live TV after he began talking about avoiding people on social media.

    "I get annoyed when people start banging on about politics on Facebook. I've had to unfriend family members, I need some respite," Morgan told viewers. "Can't you just put a picture of your little kid, y'know, having an ice-cream or something?"

    Reid, rolling her eyes and slumping her head in her chin, looked directly at the camera.

    "I know exactly what you mean," she sighed.

    "Someone just keeps going on and on and on, and you just need respite and a break. And you just wish you could defriend them, but you're just forced every day to listen to their views... I know exactly how you feel," Reid said.

    The moment ultimately wasn't lost on Morgan, who responded on social media.

    Viewers also had some fun with the exchange.
