Piers, 55, is out in the luxurious French destination with his sons, Spencer, Stanley and Bertie and was lapping in the sunshine and great food before disaster struck.

The journalist shared a snap on his Instagram yesterday evening, captioning it: "Peg-leg. (nothing like tearing a tendon on Day 2 of a 6-week holiday)."

In the picture he is surrounded by his sons, who are looking after their dad following the injury which has left him hobbling on crutches.

Piers' post has attracted over 34,000 likes, with many of his fans rushing to wish him well.

One commented: "Get well soon the morning show not the same without you".

Another said: "What the hell have you done now ? We can’t let you out of the U.K. for 5 minutes !! That’s just bad luck ... hope it’s not too sore "

While one cheeky follower said: "🤦🏼‍♀️ gutted.. In other news, your sons are all hot 👌🏻" with many agreeing with her observation.

The star has been criticised by some for going abroad for his summer break after his very strong opinion about coronavirus during his time on GMB.

Piers even had his own scare a few weeks back, but he did not have the virus in the end.

However, as restrictions have been lifted the star isn't actually breaking any laws or government guidelines.
