‘Lonely’ shows the three adults opening up about their mental health battles through a poem. It also features child actors playing the younger versions of the adults.

Susanna Reid said that the touching short film was created as part of ITV’s campaign to combat loneliness, One Million Minutes.

“This is an incredible piece of film and I do just want to say to all people; this will pass,” said Piers.

“Things are going to get betters, there’s a line in that film: ‘just hold on’, and that’s what we’ve got to do.

“Just hold on, there’s light at the end of the tunnel… I promise it will get better.”

Piers continued: “It’s a short film from One Five Productions and I’ve got a slight vested interested because my middle son directed it, Stanley.”

“Good job to you and Gilbert, with your little production company, doing that with Hussain.

“I only found out actually… Well I didn’t know you finished it then it suddenly popped up yesterday all over the internet!”
