When Piers Morgan was woken up three times one night in his American bed by transatlantic phone calls from Savills, he wasn’t awfully amused.

But he did what any self-respecting modern man does – and turned to Twitter.

“Thanks to Savills estate agents in London who rang my NY flat at 3am, 4am and 6am, despite me saying EACH TIME their client had moved.”

He later tweeted to the host of a chat show, apologising for having sounding a little tired: “An idiotic estate agent from SavillsUK woke me up all night.”

He added: “I mean, just how stupid does a Savills estate agent have to be to call a NY flat at 3am, 4am and 6am? And have the SAME conversation 3 times?”

And then tweeted: “I think my revenge will come in Savills estate agent jokes. I’ll retweet the best – may concentrate their lobotomized minds going forward.”

Thus galvanised, a lot of jokes were immediately tweeted at Savills’ expense, such as: “How do you confuse Savills estate agents? Give them a letter with PTO on both sides.” And: “How many Savills agents does it take to change a light bulb? Two. One to screw the bulb in and the other to screw the buyer.”

Lords Estate Agents (naughty!) tweeted: “Why won’t sharks eat estate agents from Savills? Professional courtesy!”

Another wrote: “How do you make a Savills agent crazy? Put him in a round room and tell him there’s a finder’s fee in the corner.”

Then there was the old chestnut: “Why have Savills stopped looking out of the window in the morning? Because they’d have nothing to do in the afternoon.”

There was also: “120 people on an oil rig. How do you know which 1 works for Savills – that is the one throwing bread to the helicopter.” And: “Why did the Savills estate agent tiptoe past the medicine cabinet? So he wouldn’t wake up the sleeping pills.”

Not to mention: “How do you keep Savills busy? Give them a bag of M ‘n’ Ms and tell them to sort them into Ms and Ws.”

Even Amanda Holden got in on the act: “They also show you around a house, walk into the kitchen and say, ‘This is the kitchen!’ (No shit Sherlock!!)”

Anyway, you get the gist.

Finally, Savills – who are also on Twitter and were included in the bombardment – cracked and tweeted: “Sincere apologies to Piers Morgan. We’ll track down who’s got you on redial and send them back to school.”

The last word went to Piers Morgan. He suggested: “Maybe give them a world clock?”

    If you actually read the comments, you will find at not one of them is slagging savills off apart from Dick Rawlings who is shamelessly trying to plug his services where he can get you 10000000% comission everytime.

    Next time, read the comments before you post you pillock.

    Any business that is actually successful will always get slagged on here by jealous morons who can’t run their own business and more likely never tried. Savills, great company, who I actually compete with and no doubt not at all bothered by key board "warriors" of no significance!

    You'd think that Piers Morgan would be bright enough to switch a phone off, wouldn't you?

    Journalists shouldn't throw stones from their glass houses, even at Savills who will have some very sound people who will be appalled by this single incident. What a petty bully Morgan is for trying to shame their entire staff because of this silly incident.

    Shame is on you Piers.

    Countryside- the criminal acting of killing Piers Morgan

    Yes "Sh*temove", I agree completely.

    I find it repulsive when Piers Morgan thinks he has the authority to take the moral high ground over anybody, knowing full well what he did.

    He sold out years ago. It's funny how quickly people forget.

    there are only a few stories where the Agent wouldn't get the blame, with Piers Morgan in the mix the agent holds all the Aces and both Jokers

    With there only being a 5-hour difference - someone's telling porkies...

    Don't Savills knock off at 4:30PM?

    I have even heard about some Savills agents only charging a 1% fee in London! Now that really is a joke. They could have charged 2.5 times that and still got the instruction, but by reducing their fee demonstrated to the vendor what rubbish negotiators they must be! sorry Savills, but there's no excuse for badly trained staff to lose you so much money!

    If Jeremy Clarkson got the job at NAEA he could thump Piers Morgan again.

    Now that was funny (back in the day)

    Piers Moron should be in prison for being Piers Moron.

    Piers Morgan should be in prison anyway, he jeopardized our troops lives whilst leading the Mirror, mocking up a fake scene urinating on prisoners in the back of a military van.

    @Amanda.. Agree, that is a bit like shagging someone who isn't your husband and saying "we shouldn't be doing this"

    Put them in a round room and tell them Mr Cowell is in the corner and his bottom could do with a licking
