The TV presenter previously revealed that his contact had been renewed until 2021 back in December 2019, and confirmed that he would be leaving the show when it ends. At the time, he told Susanna: "I've got two more years. Two more years of stories... anyway that's it, two more years and then I'll sail off into the sunset." Piers added later on in the show: "And I guarantee then I'll be out."

Will the TV personality leave the show when his contract ends?

"Slightly underwhelmed by the response from my colleagues. The viewers are euphoric. My co-workers are wrestling with it." He continued: "I've seen more cheerful people in a mausoleum."

The TV personality spoke about the gig on the show to The Sun's TV mag back in May, saying: "I love working with Susanna and the team – we’re a Ying Yang that works... If my style upsets people, don't watch! Watch something else. Nobody's forcing anyone to watch it. You've got a remote control in your hand, I really don't understand what the problem is."
