Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 55, took to Instagram last month to tell fans he had ripped a tendon and sprained his ankle during his family holiday in Saint Tropez. In his most recent column, the father-of-four said he had plans to lose weight and exercise as part of his break away, ahead of his accident.
My holiday game-plan was clear; exercise, swim, eat healthily, get fit, shed weight.
Addressing his holiday plans in his latest column, he said: “My holiday game-plan was clear; exercise, swim, eat healthily, get fit, shed weight.
“This lasted precisely 26 hours, until I left a restaurant tonight and badly turned my ankle over in a grass divot.”
Piers went on to say he had started his new regime by power-walking to a restaurant, which was located a mile away from their villa.
He added “As I pondered my options, I remembered a war story from SAS: Who Dares Wins star Ant Middleton: ‘On a 60-mile trek with a 200kg Bergen on my back, I felt my ankle break.

“’Some might have given up. I broke the other ankle to even up the pain and carried on’.”
He continued in his column with the Daily Mail: “I didn’t do that – but I did grit my teeth and yomp angrily and silently home, uphill and in sandals, each agonising step causing me to yelp and almost certainly making things worse.”
Piers said he had decided to shed the pounds after a fellow columnist recently joked that he “must getting very fat” with all the Ministers he had eaten for breakfast on Good Morning Britain.
