While the popular presenters are both happily married, the pair jokingly agreed to embark on a romantic holiday after Lucy revealed her secret soft spot for the British journalist.

When asked who her celebrity crush was, the Seven O'Clock Show host admitted her fondness for Piers.

"Piers Morgan, is that dirty?," she said. "It's the banter."

Lucy said that while she also wouldn't turn down a date with Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan, she'd prefer to whisk the Britain's Got Talent judge away to sunny Lanzarote.

"Jamie (Dornan) is the obvious, I'd go on one date," she said about The Fall hunk.

"Piers, I'd go on holidays with, for a week to Lanzarote, I could see us having fun," Lucy said.

"I think he's great fun, he's intelligent, he's full of scoop and I think he's very attractive. It's an interesting little combo," she told Woman's Way.

After discovering the presenter's hidden feelings, Piers said on Twitter that he would happily jet off with Lucy.

"I've been called many things @KennedyLucy, but never an 'interesting little combo'! See you in Lanzarote," he said.

She might have been left red-faced after being caught out, but Lucy proved she could see the funny side and replied, "Ha ha!!! See you in Lanzarote!! Vodka and diet coke for me please," she tweeted back.

Despite having worked on radio for years, the mother-of-two also revealed she has no plans to return to the radio.

"Dave Fanning said my taste in music is offensive, it was a miracle that I was hired by 2fm for two and a half years," she said.
