The outspoken TV host returned to the popular ITV show alongside Susanna Reid following their summer break, but Piers admitted he was still hurting after breaking three ribs in a nasty fall while on holiday.

Reflecting on his poor health, Piers said: "You've got to man up.

"I mean, I could have stayed in bed ... But it's all about rising to the challenge. So here I am in agony."

During the show, Piers detailed how he suffered the painful injury, which he's also documented on his Twitter account.

Recalling the unfortunate accident suffered on his holiday, he joked: "I was walking with two tennis rackets, two tennis ball tubes and two bananas.

"[You should have seen] the crime scene after it happened...

"I rocketed back and landed on my back and just lay there. The nurse at the hotel said 'Don't worry it's just bruises' so I carried on for two weeks."

But after he returned home, Piers quickly realised the injury was more serious than had first been suggested.

He said: "I get back here [t Britain] and it's three clean fractures."

Piers previously told his Twitter followers of his intention to return to work alongside Susanna, despite suffering the injury.

He wrote on the micro-blogging website: "UPDATE: I return to @GMB on Monday, with @susannareid100 & 3 broken ribs. I'm manning up. (sic)"
