Morrissey has had a bit of a falling-out with Richard Madeley over animal testing: Mozzer, of course, is very against the idea. Apparently, Madeley, in his Sunday Express column (we know, we know) had a bit of a go at him, describing LaMazza as a "puffed-up pratt".

Morrisey doesn't take a challenge like that lying down:

"Thank you to the British television person (I'm not exactly sure what he does) Richard Madeley who, at least, made me laugh recently by referring to me as an 'insufferable puffed-up prat'. This comment may or may not be true, but I think it's a bit rich coming from a man who actually married his own mother."

Hmm. Is it just us, or is there something a little uncomfortable about the supposed Wildean champion of the underdog resorting to a response of "you have an old and ugly wife" as a retort?
