Piers Morgan has revealed he's attempting to lose weight after gaining "lockdown lard" throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

The 55 year old, whose son Spencer recently ignored Tier 4 restrictions in London to fly off to Barbados, took to his Instagram feed to tell his 1.3million followers about his new diet.

Sharing a snap of a plate filled with different types of colourful sushi alongside a small bowl of what appears to be soy sauce, he explained: "I like sushi, don’t get me wrong.

Fans were quick to comment on the snap as one person joked: "That ain’t gonna fill up, the size of you’re belly is it ! Lol." [sic]

Another said: "Hopefully it’s just the starter xx," as a third agreed: "Starters Piers".

While a fourth gushed over how well taken care of he is by wife Celia, 45, who he shares daughter Elise, nine, with, as they wrote: "Your so lucky the way Celia looks after you," [sic] with three clapping hands emojis.

It comes as Piers recently furiously slammed Lauren Goodger after she said she didn’t believe in face masks and refused to take the coronavirus vaccine.

Good Morning Britain star Piers called former The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren, 32, a “halfwit” and “imbecile” over her comments.

During Wednesday 6 January’s episode of Good Morning Britain, Piers said: “On the day we discovered a million people have the virus and we’re desperate for a vaccination, she said she doesn’t agree with masks and won’t be taking the vaccine if it’s given to her.

“She said she’s terrified of the vaccine and believes she’s already had Covid and she didn’t die so it’s not a problem.

“Lauren said: ‘I’m more scared of the vaccine than I am the virus’… really?”

He continued: “She said: ‘I don’t like taking medicine, I won’t take antibiotics but I do do aesthetics’… what?”

Piers then went on to rip into Lauren as he said: “Here’s a picture of Lauren. What do you think she’s been shoving in her face?

“Where does that come from Lauren? What have you been injecting in those lips? Have you checked where it came from? Checked what it is?”

An infuriated Piers continued: “I mean these people are absolute halfwits… they’re not even halfwits, they’re quarter-wits!”

Susanna Reid then asked: “Are you sure we should even give time to people who say they won’t take the vaccine?”

Piers then insisted: “No we have to because unfortunately, she has… Here’s the problem, they are getting attention on social media.”

Susanna replied: “Well let’s not give them any attention,” to which Piers said: “Fine, but they’re already giving their views to millions of young, impressionable people and they’re not getting challenged. And my point is, these reality stars are stuffing their faces with plastic fillings, injections and surgery and so on and are banging off about vaccines. It’s ridiculous.”

Piers then urged Good Morning Britain viewers: “Do not listen to these imbeciles because it will cost lives.”
