Piers, 55, also made sure to mark Elise's special day live on air. Turning to the GMB cameras, he said: "I just want to say a very happy ninth birthday to my little girl, Elise. Nine years old today. She had a massive socially distanced party yesterday - for one person.

Piers and Celia Walden have been married since 2010

"We had a nice time, but she couldn't have a party obviously. She was not happy about that, but she will be going to school. Elise, I know you're watching. Happy birthday, and we will celebrate later, and I hope you have a lovely day."

Piers is a father of four children - he shares sons Spencer, 27, Stanley, 23, and Albert, 19, with his ex-wife Marion Shalloe; the former couple were married from 1991 until 2008. In June 2010, he married journalist Celia and they went on to welcome Elise in November 2011.
