Piers quickly retweeted Spencer's post as he shared his opinion. "Strange mindset for a journalist… so only serving military can comment on whether military action is justified/necessary when a dictator illegally invades a democratic country?"

Piers is a father of four children. The 56-year-old shares his three sons – Spencer, 28, Stanley, 24, and 21-year-old Bertie – with his ex-wife, Marion Shalloe; the former couple were married from 1991 until their divorce in 2008.


Stanley is the eldest of Piers' three sons

In June 2010, he married journalist Celia Walden, and together the couple are parents to ten-year-old daughter, Elise.

Piers recently spent time in Australia and shared a post on Instagram as he bid goodbye. "Farewell, Sydney. I leave you as I found you a week ago… and how you've been the entire time…. chucking it down!" he wrote.

"But it was still a wonderful trip and my hotel @parkhyattsydney was one of the very best I've ever stayed in. Who can moan when you have a view like this from your room? Beautiful harbour, great city, and special thanks to everyone at Sky News Australia for making me feel so welcome. We seem to be already ruffling all the right feathers. Can't wait to get started on the new show."
