GMB got especially lively this morning as Piers Morgan was targeted by both Susanna Reid and Dr Hilary for being fat.
Piers was explaining a tweet from his friend Kevin Pietersen, who mocked his weight.
Very good 5 minutes on @GMB there talking about the benefits of weight loss and being healthy.
Maybe @piersmorgan should practice what he preaches?

The 55-year-old confirmed he’d put on a bit of timber over lockdown and busting his ankle hadn’t helped.
“I need to be shamed into losing it,” he admitted.
Susanna then suddenly said: “Yes you fat person, it’s about time chubster.”
She then explained Piers had told her to say that and joked it was bringing her out in hives just doing it.

The conversation then moved on and Piers teased Dr Hilary for having a girl’s name.
He shot back: “At least I’m not overweight.”
Both Piers and Susanna looked aghast that the usually mild-mannered TV doc had clapped back.
It got worse for Piers, though, as his mum then texted.
She said: “That’s made my day, love Hilary.”
