Hours later he quit the ITV show after refusing to apologise for saying he didn’t believe a word Meghan said in light of her mental health struggles.
In his latest column for the Mail, Piers writes how his celeb pals rallied around him, including This Morning star Holly, who worried about his blood pressure.
He said: “Holly Willoughby was more concerned about my blood pressure from all the GMB ranting.”
When he told her he didn’t meditate, Holly suggested a pricey course.

He continued: “Holly then sent me a link to one hat costs £249 for seven hours of meditation technique training live broadcasted to my home which would include advice on ‘managing difficult situations’, ‘nailing interviews’ and ‘making hangovers less horrible’.
“And I’d even get my own personal meditation sound to repeat softly in
my head! This would apparently all ensure I am ‘no longer ruled by my emotions’.
“Problem is that I can’t imagine anything more boring than not being
ruled by my emotions.”
Holly and her co-star Phillip Schofield previously poked fun at Piers’s on-air strop.
Speaking on This Morning, Phillip told Holly: “Careful what you say today. I may get up and I may storm off.”

Laughing about the prospect of Phillip doing the same, Holly, 40, replied: “Don’t you leave me.”
He insisted: “I may get up and go” but Holly pretended to be terrified, replying: “I’ll be very nice to you.”
Looking straight at the camera laughing, Phillip, 58, said: “What a morning, eh?”
