Piers Morgan has finally revealed why he was rushed to hospital yesterday, explaining that his ‘innards exploded’.
The Good Morning Britain host shared a picture of himself lying in a hospital bed on Friday , sparking waves of speculation about what mystery illness had landed him there.
Piers, 53, has now confirmed that after undergoing invasive tests, he was diagnosed with a nasty case of gastritis and duodenitis – otherwise known as inflammation of the stomach and small bowel.
And he reckons the vegan sausage roll he ate live on air was to blame .
"If you really want to know, I was diagnosed with stomach gastritis and duodenitis. I blame eating a mouthful of vegan sausage roll, Brexit & Donald Trump," he responded to a fan on Twitter .
"Monday, 6.40am: I eat one mouthful of vegan sausage roll. Friday, 11am: hospitalised for gastroscopy on inflamed, exploding innards. I’m doing the maths."
The TV host – who was treated privately – told how medics sedated him while a camera was fed into his stomach to find out what was wrong.
"Had a gastroscopy but fortunately, I can’t remember a damn thing about it. Sedatives are my new best friend," he wrote.
And when someone called him a ‘big Nancy’ for seeking pain relief, he retorted, "I’m told 70 per cent of people who have a gastroscopy opt for a sedative, and the other 30 per cent later wish they had… once they’ve recovered from violent retching & gagging."
He assured his followers that he’d be back of work by Monday, insisting, "I don’t pull sickies."
But while it appears that his illness hasn’t done any lasting damage, he said that doctors discovered he has "Unusually large vital organs, apparently."
His revelation comes after some online users accused Piers of faking it for a "publicity stunt" as he appeared to be wearing his clothes beneath his hospital robe.
"Why has Piers Morgan got a hospital gown on with his own clothes underneath, publicity stunt??" one fan wondered.
