The topic inspired his wife Celia’s latest column titled ‘My husband needs to be fat-shamed’.”
Piers read out comments from his wife’s self-written piece in The Telegraph live on the ITV show.
She wrote: “I have no issue with my husband’s GMB co-host calling him a ‘chubster’ on live television.
“He, like me, is of the belief that a little bit of fat-shaming where it’s due can be a good thing, and there’s something shameful about the amount of blue cheese and Bordeaux that man’s put away over the past six months.
“Moreover, the insults will actually help him lose the weight, he rightfully insists.”
