In contrast, Piers admitted that he probably has ‘a couple of glasses of wine a night’ and ‘couldn’t imagine having a day without wine.’
‘You can’t do anything. The days are too long,’ he said before clarifying: ‘I don’t sit on my own in the kitchen.’
Turning his attention to Susanna, Piers then joked: ‘No wonder you’re so miserable. Get a bottle of wine out the cellar and treat yourself.’

Appearing on the show remotely from Covent Garden, he barked: ‘It’s a disgrace, what’s happened in the government mate, it’s bulls**t, and Boris Johnson and the whole lot of them down there need to start treating us with a bit of respect, a bit of honesty and a bit of dignity.’
Phelan also lashed out at the government while reflecting on the Black Lives Matter protests being carried out in London, a reaction to the senseless killing of black man George Floyd by a white police officer in the United States on May 25th.
Susanna later ensured she apologised to any viewers offended by his ‘fruity language’ behalf before they went to a commercial break.

Susanna went on a a strict no-alcohol diet plan in September 2018 following a doctor’s warning over her BMI.
Speaking to The Daily Mail in September 2019, she said of her former habit: ‘I never drank when I was working, but, on nights off, I’d have a couple of glasses of wine.
‘And Piers and I would have these big nights out at the Groucho Club in Soho, which were wonderful.
‘But I haven’t done one of those since I stopped drinking. Basically, I’m a lot less fun now — as Piers tells me all the time.’

However earlier in the month, she admitted that she had fallen off the wagon during a boozy Ibiza trip with Judge Rinder, real name Robert Rinder, over the summer.
Susanna, who has lost almost two stone since ditching booze, said after being grilled by Piers: ‘I did fall off the wagon,’ to which Piers responded with: ‘Are you back on the lash?’
The presenter has also previously admitted in an interview that she had fallen off the wagon eight times since going teetotal.
‘It’s a bit like the end of a relationship when you’re not quite ready to say it’s really over. There are times you fall back into it. Each time, I regretted the alcohol. It either made me grouchy or took me days to recover,’ she said.
