Most recently, the GMB star and his 27-year-old son Spencer received death threats from trolls on Instagram earlier this month.
The journalist was told to watch his back as he was a “marked man”, who is going to be “killed”, whereas Spencer was also targeted, in a post that read: “Watch your back @Spencermorgan if you don’t get your dad, your getting it or your mum is.”(sic)
Piers announced that he was taking the threats seriously and police are currently investigating the case to try and track down the IP address belonging to the culprit.
