Piers hit back: “Mate, with respect, what part of them giving endless primetime TV interviews means they want to be left alone?”

However, Kevin said: “You know how to deal with it, just leave them alone.”

Piers exclaimed: “They don’t want to be left alone!”

Kevin replied, “Well just leave them alone,” as Susanna chipped in, “Can we leave them alone in this interview?”
