When was Piers mocked for his weight?
Piers’ return to the gym comes after he was mocked on Good Morning Britain for his weight.
Back in June, he admitted live on air that he had fallen into the trap of gaining weight during lockdown.
He then read out a column by a TV critic, who branded him “chubadub”.
And that wasn’t the end of it all.
He told GMB co-host, Susanna Reid, that he needed to be shamed to get his weight down.
Daytime colleague Lorraine Kelly then called him “pleasantly plump“.
