The non-binary couple joined Piers and his co-host Susanna Reid on the sofa on Wednesday morning.
The topic of the Good Morning Britain discussion was non-gender people and titles.
Piers is particularly vocal on the subject and has ignited several discussions about it on GMB this week.
The host’s interest in the debate has stemmed from actress Emma Watson accepting MTV’s first gender-neutral specific Movie Award last week.

And on Wednesday, Fox and Owl appeared on Good Morning Britain to talk about why they don’t identify as either gender.
They attempted to explain to presenter Piers that what it means to be a man or a women in society is “totally constructed.”
Fox, who was assigned female at birth, said it’s “about gender identity versus gender expression.”
“My gender identity is non-binary and my gender expression is more masculine, so I hope that clears it up a little bit,” they said.
Asked what they are now, Fox replied: “What am I? I define as non-binary. That means that I identify as neither male or female fully.”
Owl – who was assigned male at birth – said: “I sort of denounce the idea of being a man or a woman. A non-binary is an identity on its own outside of this binary.”

They were then challenged by Piers over whether it’s “gobbledigook.”
“It’s not gobbledigook – you’ve got to respect what people want to be called,” Owl insisted, before adding: “It’s about respect.”
Piers then asked whether he could identify as whatever he liked, including as an elephant, saying: “What else can you say I’m not? If I identify now as anything… can I be anything I want?
“Can I be an elephant? Can I literally say I’m now an elephant and do I get afforded elephant rights?
“Can I go to London Zoo and demand to be put in an elephant compound because I have decided I’m an elephant?”
The couple were later seen pleading with the host to stop “fear mongering.”

Piers’ attitude enraged viewers at home, with many taking to social media to blast the star.
One posted on Twitter: “I’m infuriated by the belligerent ignorance of @piersmorgan. @piersmorgan @ITV should apologize for unacceptable behaviour @GMB”
With another writing: “He asks questions then doesn’t listen to their responses & repeatedly talks over them. Good morning everyone except @piersmorgan”
“@piersmorgan @GMB why don’t you just let people be who they are and be happy? It literally doesn’t affect you, and if it bothers you, you must be bored,” added a third.
