Piers Morgan reveals Sir Tom Moore ordered six blondes in dressing room rider
Piers Morgan has revealed that Sir Tom Moore ordered ‘six blondes’ in his dressing room rider.
The war veteran recently spoke with the controversial journalist for over two hours when filming his episode of Life Stories.
And while presenting the breakfast show this morning, the 55-year-old shared a sneak peak at what fans can expect from the special instalment.
‘We spoke about what he ordered in his rider,’ Piers told his co-host Susanna Reid before a short clip aired on the programme.
‘A bottle of coke, a dairy milk chocolate bar,’ he read out to his guest before laughing: ‘And six blondes!’
Sir Tom chuckled: ‘That’s it. The number six is variable of course.’
When asked if he considered himself a ‘ladies man’, the World War II hero said: ‘I wouldn’t describe myself as that, but I have never been allergic to girls.’
The pair then went on to discuss Dame Vera Lynn, who died earlier this year shortly after her 103rd birthday.
‘She was congratulating me on the effort I’ve been to to raise all this money,’ Sir Tom explained when referring to the £32 million he raised for the NHS and their fight against coronavirus.
‘It was a little kind letter she wrote to me and it came on the day she died.’
He proceeded to sing Dame Vera’s infamous tune, We’ll Meet Again, and yes, we’re probably going to need tissues to hand when the episode airs on Sunday.
It was the first time both Piers and Sir Tom had seen each other in person after communicating with each other via video call throughout the pandemic.
Earlier this week, Piers celebrated the moment, saying: ‘What a story, what a life he has had – when I went to see him and we met for the first time he went, “Oh, you look younger in the flesh.”
‘He’s 100, he’s incredible we did a two-hour interview with a little break in the middle, but he was absolutely on it the whole time and I think it’s going to be riveting viewing for people.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
