He also asked the presenting veteran for tips on hosting breakfast TV, to which Bill suggested: “Clean living, clear conscience – I’m not so sure about you – you’ve got to go to bed early, focus on the programme, no alcohol, and make sure you get enough rest.”

That seemed to be a deal-breaker for Piers though, who replied: “I’m not sure I tick any of those boxes.”

He might have been feeling a bit miffed because of the size of the bottle of champagne he received to celebrate his anniversary.
