    First Christine O'Donnell and now this.

    Just a month after the former U.S. Senate candidate stormed off the set of Piers Morgan Tonight, X Factor host Steve Jones has followed suit.

    So what did host Piers Morgan say to anger the Welsh star?

    During his sit-down on the CNN show taped earlier this week and set to air Oct. 7, Jones reportedly got miffed when Morgan asked him about his reputation as a ladies man. Jones—who has been linked to Hayden Panettiere, Pamela Anderson and Halle Berry, among others—up and left the studio.

    But that wasn't the end of it.

    Afterward, Jones and Morgan took to Twitter in a game of upsmanship.

    "For the record I'm not ashamed to admit I stormed off @piersmorgan tonight," Jones tweeted. "His line of questing was highly offensive. You judge #thisfriday."

    When a fan asked Morgan, "Hey, @piersmorgan, who is @SteveJones?" he tweeted, "No idea...Had him thrown off my set yesterday for lewd conduct."

    So there you have it: walk off vs. thrown off. While we aren't choosing sides until we see the videotape tomorrow, we sure O'Donnell wouldn't blame Jones for bailing.
