revealed he’s taken the Tube to Tuesday night’s and needless to say, people are pretty shocked.
The TV star, 58, posted a snap of himself on the Tube wearing a smart suit on Instagram, prompting his fans to ask why he’s not being driven to the glitzy event by a chauffeur.
Piers, who is nominated for best TV interview at the ceremony, didn’t appear thrilled about the fact he’d chosen a particularly hot day to hop aboard the Underground and pulled a slightly confused expression.
He captioned his photo: ‘On way to the @officialntas – first time on the tube in 30+ years. Hasn’t got any cooler has it.’
Beneath his photo, one person exclaimed: ‘What!’ while someone else quipped, ‘First time in 30 years?!!’
Someone else commented: ‘A true man of the people.’
Other remarks included: ‘Why not get a taxi or an Uber?’ and ‘Thought you would have been chauffeur driven Piers.’
‘What no chauffeur Piers?’ echoed another Instagrammer.
