Speaking about his new diet, Piers previously said: 'I'm going to see a new personal trainer, and unfortunately Celia's taken it all quite seriously.

"So suddenly it's all the good stuff's gone and all the kale's come in and the quinoa and vegetables. A lot of vegetables. A lot of salmon. A lot less Bordeaux - I'm down to one glass a night," he added to The Sun. "And, well, during the summer, a lot of cheese went down my gullet, and it could stretch to a bottle of red. Quite comfortably ... Depending on the quality, and maybe a little more."
