Hi Piers It’s been a rough year Did you and your wife Celia get along well during the lockdown?
I think my wife felt very lucky that she got to see so much of me [laughs] What if you believe you will believe anything! We just cracked up and she turned out to be a much better cook than I thought She really honed her cooking skills
Your sons Spencer, Stanley and Albert are quite loud on social media and you often disagree publicly with them. Does this sometimes lead to tense times around the dinner table?
No, we had debates at family dinners But I encouraged all my kids to have opinions and to have opinions on things We have really good arguments and I often pass things in front of the boys and even my daughter [Elise] sometimes and I feel what people think
You call Susanna Reid, your GMB co-host, your TV wife Have you ever had a big impact?
Let’s not argue as such, but we have some pretty lively and heated debates We are both strong-minded people with strong opinions and we don’t hold back Nothing that has been irreparable and finally we respect each other
It’s like an arranged marriage without any of the good sides! [Laughs] We have a really good relationship based on good, healthy respect, but we don’t like that either of us get away with anything
We have a very lively, lively and enjoyable relationship with each other – on and off screen
None of them are aggressive from a distance and a fight is the last thing I can imagine. I’m the problem!
We don’t – we agree on a lot of things The bottom line is that we agree on what kind of tv and movies we like For me being stuck with someone you like to watch different things would be a bit of a nightmare
You are often trolled on social networks Have you ever been hurt by comments?
Not really – I have very thick skin and I’m used to it But trolling is getting worse and worse I’ve seen Meghan Markle claim to be the most trolled person in the world, which didn’t is not true Spend an hour on my Twitter feed and you will see that I am 10 times worse than it is
