Piers Morgan has revealed his eldest son Spencer was hospitalised in Turkey after receiving a “small spider bite” during their holiday in Antigua.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 53, said the bite led to “one long week of near-Sepsis hell” for his son.

Piers, 53, took to Instagram on Friday to share a photo of Spencer, 25, lying in a hospital bed at the Letoon Hospital in Fethiye, a city in Turkey.

He didn’t explain why Spencer is currently in Turkey.

Piers wrote: “One small spider bite in Antigua.. led to one long week of near-Sepsis hell in Turkey.

“Many thanks to all the brilliant staff at Letoon Hospital in Kalkan for taking care of my eldest son @spencer__morgan so well. Thankfully now on road to recovery.”

Fans rushed to comment on the snap to wish Spencer a speedy recovery.

One person said: “One of the worst things to receive is a spider bite. Glad to hear he’s doing well.”

Another wrote: “Scary, all the best in recovery,” while a third commented: “Oh my word what a worry. Pleased he is in the mend.”

And it seems Spencer is in good spirits as he posted a photo of himself outside the hospital with his arms opened wide.

Carrying a bottle of water and sporting a bandage on his arm, Spencer captioned the post: “Scared of spiders? Am I [expletive] #ChristHasRisenAgain.”

He also took to his Instagram stories on Friday morning showing himself in his hospital bed watching a show on his laptop.

Spencer captioned the pic: “Day 6.”

Piers spent the end of his summer in Antigua with Spencer and his two other sons, Stanley, 21, and 17-year-old Bertie.

The family enjoyed relaxing on the beach, soaking up the sun on a yacht and spent a day snorkelling in the sea.

Spencer also took to Instagram to share a snap of himself and brother Bertie alongside a stingray at Strinray City, a tourist attraction in the Cayman Islands.

Spencer quipped: “Sure the brother lost an arm but sometimes we must make sacrifices for the gram.”
