Piers Morgan has said TV pal Holly Willoughby got in touch with him in a panic after being asked to film an obituary for the Good Morning Britain star.
Morgan shared on Twitter last month that several concerned friends got in touch after falling for a sick hoax that claimed he had died.
He has now revealed one such friend was This Morning star Willoughby, who contacted the 55-year-old after receiving the morbid request.
To the pranksters currently contacting all my famous friends asking them to tape a contribution to my obituary for ITN… maybe stop being annoying little dickheads?
