Glynne is not Piers's biological father – but has called him 'dad' ever since he was a very young child. The TV presenter's birth father Vincent died when Piers was just 11 months old, and Glynne became his step-dad when he married his mum, Gabrielle.

Piers is also a proud father to daughter Elise

Piers is very close to both his parents; Gabrielle, in particular, has been a longtime advocate for her son.

Taking to her personal account, Gabrielle replied: "I am the proudest Mum in the world. The only journalist doing his job, as you will find out at the end of all this."
