Piers Morgan has revealed that not only was a raver in his younger days, but somebody spiked his drink at one of the wild parties.
The Good Morning Britain host discussed the Extinction Rebellion protestors setting up a party spot at Smithfields in east London, and admitted that he was also partial to a party in his early twenties.
But on one unfortunate occasion, his drink was spiked and it made him dance for hours on end.
Sharing the anecdote with his co-host Susanna Reid, the TV presenter said: ‘I’m very happy for them all and the last time I danced like that was in my early twenties when somebody slipped something into my drink.
‘I never found out what it was but I danced like that for eight hours.’
Piers then made us all cringe when he put on an American accent and quoted the Happy Mondays: ‘I was twisting my melons, man.’
He added of the protestors: ‘I’m not sure what the point of this, they storm into Smithfields market full of hardworking traders. The only people in the country who get up earlier than we do.’
Piers, 54, has made his feelings clear on the climate change protestors who have taken over parts of London, sparking travel chaos and inconvenience for some businesses.
On Monday’s episode of GMB, Piers called them ‘shameless hypocrites’ for ordering food at McDonald’s while also taking aim at activist Greta Thunberg again.
After mocking her voice, Piers said: ‘I’m glad it rained yesterday because those lot need a damn good shower. Honestly, the hypocrisy that comes from these people.
‘They went to McDonald’s to eat mass produced meat out of cardboard boxes. Maybe they’re not having a veggie burger, maybe they’re shameless hypocrites going to the epicentre of fast food.
‘They went down and defaced the famous horse with their stupid signs and stuff. We all want to save the planet. I’m not lying down on the floor, defacing the white horse, paralysing traffic in London for two weeks and genuinely behaving like a total imbecile. That’s not how you affect change.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
