Piers Morgan, 55, has revealed he has been “shamed” into going on a diet in a bid to lose weight after he was called “fatso” and “chubster” by his Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid, 49. The presenter admitted to gaining half a stone recently and explained the situation was due to over-indulging in food during his holiday in France.
Piers divulged that he couldn’t resist enjoying too much wine and cheese over the summer, but he has now cut back to just one glass of his favourite Bordeaux.
As a result of his weight gain, the star’s wife Celia Walden has organised workouts for him with a personal trainer.

Piers took to Instagram to share a recent interview with his 1.2 million followers, in which he discussed his weight gain and how Susanna mocked him about it on the ITV show.
