Piers continued: "Anyway it's sad news.

Piers joked: "This is how they break the news to you on television…"

Later in the show, Piers wasn't too happy when the show's meteorologist Laura Tobin told him it's going to be warmer in the UK than Los Angeles.

Laura told the presenter: "It's going to be warmer here than it is in Hollywood. It will be in the low 30s by the weekend."

Piers hit back: "Hang on, let's just check," as he picked up his phone to check the weather.

Susanna said: "No, that's our meteorologist who just told you."
