Elsewhere, Piers’ GMB co-host Susanna Reid set the record straight on his claims about her flying in economy ahead of the ITV show’s broadcast from Los Angeles.
Piers mischievously jibed his fellow presenter during their joint appearance on Loose Women by saying: “Susanna goes a bit more down the plane than me…”
Susanna has now addressed her co-host’s remark in her column for the publication, branding it “nonsense”.
She recalled: “Piers had flown out a few days earlier and joked on Twitter that, while he was in first class, I was much further down the aircraft.
“Nonsense, obviously. I’m at the front of the plane, too, although in Virgin Upper Class rather than BA First Class.”
