Piers Morgan says he needs to be shamed into losing weight after cricketer Kevin Pieterson said the broadcaster had put on a few pounds over lockdown.

On todays Good Morning Britain, Morgan and his co-host Susanna Reid admitted to putting on weight after Morgans friend Pieterson tweeted about his size.

Pieterson wrote: Very good 5 minutes on @GMB there talking about the benefits of weight loss and being healthy.

Maybe @piersmorgan should practice what he preaches?

He continued: Maybe if he wasnt so FAT(and we know thats a type of person Covid hits), hed STOP his scare-mongering?

Reid questioned their friendship, saying: You have a very weird friendship. Honestly, I appreciate my friends giving me advice but to call you fat.

When Reid asked how much weight Morgan put on, he said: At least half a stone to three-quarters of a stone, to which Reid replied: I put on a stone.

Morgan then insisted: I need to be shamed into getting [the weight] off.
