Piers Morgan reveals he was hospitalised with gastritis and blames vegan sausage rolls

The Good Morning Britain star shared a picture of himself in a hospital bed yesterday without an explanation of his ailment.

Now he has told fans the reason behind his stay on Twitter, adding that he was treated privately and will be back at work on Monday.

Writing on the social media platform, he said: "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."

Explaining his reasoning, he wrote: "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."

Giving more details about his hospital visit, he posted: "Had a gastroscopy but fortunately, I can't remember a damn thing about it.
"Sedatives are my new best friend."

Doctors told the star he had "unusually large vital organs", while Piers defended his decision to be sedated after one Twitter user accused him of being a wuss.

 

Yesterday Piers reassured fans he wasn't dying.

Pictured in his hospital gown, wearing an oxygen tube through his nose, he wrote: "Bad news: I’m not dying. I can only apologise for all the distress I know this will cause some people."

It led some to believe he had been struck down after eating a vegan sausage roll live on TV earlier this week.

But he's actually be suffering with ill health since before Christmas, after spending weeks on antibiotics as he battled bronchitis, laryngitis and sinusitis.

He confessed he was a "sweaty mess" and had chest pain and difficulties breathing after contracting a nasty virus.

The 53-year-old admitted he'd been forced to cancel his New Year's Eve plans as he continued his recovery.

He said: "Wildest New Year’s Eve for decades… went to bed at 8.59pm with two strong Italian Tachipirinas & had one helluva🔥steamy sleepless night.

"Hope yours was anywhere near as wild. Happy New Year!"

He had been forced to seek help from Doctor Hilary Jones before his Christmas break.

The long-standing TV medic told him: It's run its course, you've been suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection.

"By soldiering on it probably kept the virus going a little bit. You are over the worst of it though.

"It doesn't normally last several weeks, but at this time of year it's not unusual."
But it seems he's still struggling with his health as he spends his day off in a hospital bed.

His followers rallied to send him well-wishes, with one saying: "Oh not nice to see you poorly, get well soon pal."

Someone else added: "Wishing you well and hope it’s not to serious."

Another joked: "That Greggs vegan roll has really done you in hasn’t it."

It's after Piers vomited on Good Morning Britain after trying out the new vegetarian option on Monday.

He declared that the vegan treat "absolutely stinks and tastes disgusting" before spitting it out into a bin under his desk.
