Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 55, has informed his 7.6 million Twitter followers that he suffered an injury just days into his holiday from the ITV programme. The outspoken journalist revealed he unfortunately “twisted his ankle last night” while hitting back at a cheeky suggestion from a social media user about how he should spend his summer break.
The Twitter user advised Piers to do some exercise while he’s in the south of France, writing: “I’d do some cardio while you’re away Mr Morgan!!!”
GMB favourite Piers then sarcastically replied: “Many thanks for your kind concern.
“Unfortunately, I twisted my ankle last night so the cardio will have to wait.”
Fans took to the comments section of the star’s post to share their thoughts on his mishap.

One person wrote: “Look after yourself Piers, have a great holiday. Lovely to see Kate [Garraway] and Ben [Shephard] in the mornings, a great team, but miss seeing Susanna and yourself.”
Another added: “Nothing worse than an injury at the start of your holiday!”
A third person commented: “Oh dear how did you twist it? Easily done.”
Piers’ tweet comes after he responded to another Twitter user who shared their views on his two month long holiday from the show.
They wrote: “@piersmorgan I’m hearing you have taken 2 months holiday is this correct. Can you get me a job @GMB the amount of holidays you get is amazing.”
Addressing his break, Piers wrote back: “It’s true, Michael. But only from @GMB.
“I currently have 4 other jobs (Life Stories, prison docs, @DailyMail online columns & Mail on Sunday diary) – so don’t fret about me being a lazy g**.”
The fan then replied: “Thanks Piers really appreciate the response and explanation. It was the Mrs that told me so thought I’d ask. Made our day getting a direct answer. Not been weird but I’m becoming quite a fan.”

Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard are currently holding the fort on GMB in Piers and Susanna’s absence.
Kate made an emotional appearance on the show last week, ahead of her return to presenting duties, to give fans an update on her husband Derek Draper’s health battle after he was admitted to intensive care with coronavirus.
The star said that Derek had been “very very sick” and that it was a “desperate situation.”
Piers posted a picture of the pair on social media following her return and told fans it was “so lovely” to have Kate and her “fabulous smile” back in the studio again.
