The 55-year-old detailed his light-hearted call with the inspirational fundraiser in his latest column for Event.
During their conversation, the outspoken GMB broadcaster later put Captain Tom’s “magical powers” to the test.
Piers recalled how he had a coversation with him on July 1, as he looked back on his week in comments published last weekend.
“He still hasn’t left the house since his world turned upside down with his £33 million fundraising walk around his garden,” the journalist started.
He went on to state that three hours later, the team beat Norwich 4-0.
It comes just hours after Captain Tom recieved a knighthood from Her Majesty at a “unique ceremony” at Windsor Castle.
It was the Queen’s first official engagement in person since lockdown.
He was honoured after he raised more than £32 million for NHS charities, by walking more than 100 laps of his garden in Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire.
