He told Piers: “It may have silenced my talking, but if I took enough steroids, inhalers, anti-inflammatories, and antacids in the hour before the shows, then I could sing.”

Piers said it has been “fascinating to hear how different the Covid experience is for many people” and admitted he and James shared one “positive” side effect which was weight loss.

Piers said James had lost 4kg and he has “dropped 2kg”.
