Piers Morgan, 55, took to Twitter and shared a heartfelt message to the US politician. It comes after it was announced that Ruth Bader Ginsburg died due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer.

The 87-year-old heavyweight politician was surrounded by her family at the time of her death.

Piers described the US Supreme Justice as “fearless” and an “underdog” in a poignant tribute.

In view of his 7.6 million followers, the GMB host penned: “RIP Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87.

“US Supreme Court Justice, crusader, campaigner, champion of the underdog, & a fearless, fabulous Bada**.”

He went on to quote Ruth, adding: “Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”

Fans flocked to comment on the post, as many people offered their condolences.

One person wrote: “Sad to hear. Remarkable woman.”

“Thank you for all the fantastic work you have done. You will never be forgotten,” another person penned.

Ruth announced in July that she was undergoing chemotherapy for lesions on her liver, after suffering five bouts of cancer beginning in 1999.

A host of famous faces have offered emotional tributes, including Countdown host Rachel Riley who penned: “What a loss to the world.”

Strictly Come Dancing star Michelle Visage said Ms Ginsburg’s death left a “massive hole in democracy”.

She wrote: “You, my lady, were a beacon of strength, light, hope and love!!!! You are appreciated more than you will ever know.”

Justice Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993 and served more than 27 years on the Court – becoming a legal, cultural and feminist icon.

Just days before her death, she dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera, saying: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

Ms Ginsburg’s death may spark political tensions over who succeeds her as the US presidential elections approach.

US President Donald Trump learned of her death from reporters, after leaving a rally in Minnesota.
