PIERS Morgan knew he’d put on a few pounds in lockdown but got a shock when he couldn’t fit into his Christmas jumper for Good Morning Britain.

The 55-year-old host was feeling festive as he squeezed into a festive knit adorned with penguins for today’s Christmas special.

But the feeling was short-lived as he realised he couldn’t move in the “tight” sweater and had to be cut out of it by wardrobe.

“I always wear a silly jumper on Christmas and I’ve worn one here with penguins to reflect the fact that I often identify as a two spirit penguin as you know,” he said.

“[It’s] a little tight, in fact, so tight they had to physically slash the back of the jumper.

“I’m not going to show you yet but I might do later once the mulled wine starts to kick in but…

“Let’s just say it wasn’t quite big enough so Debbie, ”Debbie Dresses”, we call her who normally works on dresses had to come to me with a large pair of secateurs and just basically go csshhrrt and so you know it sort of loosened things up a bit.”

Susanna Reid – who previously lost weight by giving up alcohol – admitted she’s also put on “a few pounds” this year.

“Yes and I have put on, let’s say quite a few pounds, in lockdown and over the year,” she said.

The pair were later later joined by the Body Coach Joe Wicks, 34, for a virtual interview.

And even the nation’s virtual PE teacher admitted he lets himself go on Christmas Day.

“100%. Look on Christmas Day, I don’t do any exercise, eat as much as I can, then fall asleep, then wake up and go again and try to eat as much as I can. I love it.” he said.

“Christmas Day is all about food and being lazy and watching movies. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in later on.”
