What did Piers’ followers say?

As ever, Piers divided his followers.

“Piers, you are Marmite,” one said.

“Some days I have to turn you off but stick you straight back on the next morning.

“I then get cross when I turn the TV on and I forgot it was your day off. I have voted for my favourite Marmite. Hope you win.”

I am fed up with Ant and Dec keep winning constant TV Awards.

Another wrote: “I am fed up with Ant and Dec keep winning constant TV Awards in TV Award ceremony there [sic] even doing adverts for Santander Bank now.”

A third commented: “Sorry Piers, they are in a league above you.

“Consider yourself honoured to even be nominated next to them. *the irony of you calling people smug by the way.”
