The military veteran raised over £32 million for the NHS via his charity walk during lockdown.

He has since received a knighthood from the Queen, written a children’s book, an autobiography and even earned a number one charity single.

In the emotional sit down with Piers, he said he asked not to be resuscitated after a nasty fall last year.

He also shared his fears of ending up in a care home.

He explained: “I have always felt that if somebody is gravely ill and near to death to bring them back for them to die a very unpleasant death, why do that? If you have gone, you have gone.

“I did not want to finish up in an old people’s home without any facility of my own, having to be fed in every way. I would hate ever to be like that.”
