Piers brought up the interview he did with the Portuguese footballer, to which co-presenter Susanna Reid replied: "Can I just point out, just because someone says you have good abs doesn't mean you do."

Dr Hilary's cheeky jibe comes after he and Piers had an awkward exchange on the show yesterday (May 19).

Awkward exchange

Piers asked Dr Hilary to name 'just one thing' that the government was ahead of the game with since the outbreak of the virus rather than being 'two months behind'.

"Our NHS," Dr Hilary replied. "We just have to say in maintaining an NHS that was able to cope at the peak."

"How did we do that? We chucked all the elderly into care homes," Piers said.

"No, I'm talking about hospitals here," Dr Hilary retorted, looking tense.

"I know," Piers replied. "I'm just saying that the reason hospitals didn't get run over was because we took thousands of old people out of the hospitals and we put them into care homes where they infected people."

Dr Hilary later hit back with: "There were warnings from journalists about what may happen in a pandemic. There's a lot of complaints now about what we should have done.

"Where were the journalists asking whether we were doing enough for care homes before the event?"
