Taking to Twitter and Instagram, the cheeky 25-year-old wrote: “Happy birthday old boy, if I look like you at the age of 54… I’ll be fuming.”

The Good Morning Britain star retweeted the cheeky comment, replying with a quote from the late actor Robin Williams: “‘Never pick a fight with an ugly person, they’ve got nothing to lose’.”

Piers – who is also dad to Albert and Stanley from his previous marriage to Marion Shalloe, and daughter Elise, with his current wife, Celia Walden – later retweeted a fan comment that read: “Happy birthday. You look better than your son.”
