Piers Morgan's holiday hasn't got off to the best start! The Good Morning Britain star took to Instagram on Monday to reveal he has torn a tendon in his right leg and is now having to use crutches to get around. Piers, 55, shared a snapshot showing him posing with his three sons – Spencer, 27, Stanley, 23, and 19-year-old Albert - in Saint Tropez. He wrote: "Peg-leg. (Nothing like tearing a tendon on Day 2 of a 6-week holiday)."

The clan are certainly making the most of their getaway. Last week, they ventured out to have lunch with Joan Collins. They headed to Le Club 55 with the proud dad sharing a snapshot showing him enjoying lunch with Spencer and his middle son, Stanley. "First lunch with my sons (2/3 of them anyway) in 120 days - and can't think of a better place to have it," the TV presenter wrote.
