Former teen idol David Cassidy started an awkward argument with Eamonn Holmes when he was asked about his bankruptcy.

The 70s singer was appearing via video link on This Morning from his Florida mansion when he became offended by Holmes and wife Ruth Langsford's questioning.

Cassidy began to accuse Holmes, saying "Are you trying to rubbish me?" when he was asked if he could now pay off his debts.

"When you declare bankruptcy in this country, it's something you do in order to reorganise what you have, your assets, so I'm not going to discuss that," he said.

Langsford's comments that he had been through a lot were met with the response: "Yes, I have and I still have fantastic assets".


The uncomfortable chat continued when Langsford asked if he was glad to have the support of his fans after such a difficult journey. "Don't interrupt me," Cassidy snapped back - telling her to "wait" nine times in a row.

Holmes asked if he was sad to sell the plush mansion seen in the background, which Cassidy is auctioning for $1.8m (€1.59m).

"It had nothing to do with declaring bankruptcy, that was a totally separate issue. I'm doing it because I'm in the middle of a divorce," he said.

When the video link ended Holmes referred back to the singer's arrests for drink driving.

"David's going through more than [a divorce], he's been arrested three times for being drunk under the influence," he said to Langsford.

Later, Holmes downed a glass of red wine on air while telling his wife: "My darling, as you know, I don't drink. Today I'm going to make an exception. David Cassidy, here's to you."

Holmes has also taken to Twitter, writing:"Just when I thought my #DavidBlaine i/view could never be topped along comes another David to steal the Crown".
