Piers kicked off the ITV show on a personal note and confided in co-host Susanna Reid shortly after 6.30am.
He said: “Is anyone here getting weird dreams? Any weird dreams last night”
Susanna, 49, joked: “Yes you were in it and I woke up in a cold sweat.”
Trying to describe his lucid dream he continued: “It was a nightmare, it was, definitely. It was very weird. Now the dreams are getting odd …

“Always when I feel like I’m under pressure. One where I’m on a beach where there’s a tidal wave and it gets bigger and bigger, and you run up the beach but you can’t get away.
“And another one is my teeth are falling out.
“That’s a more common one when you look these up but it’s really weird.”
Piers turned to show medic Dr Hilary Jones and asked him if his dreams were normal.

Dr Hilary explained: “It’s basically anxiety-driven fear, subconsciously you’re thinking something’s chasing me and it’s due to stress and fear.”
Last year Susanna admitted she felt like she couldn’t escape the killer virus due to reporting on it every day.
She admitted she would wake up “screaming and crying” at the start of the pandemic.
During a chat with The Telegraphs’ Stella Magazine, Susanna explained: “It was an anxious time for everybody, but those early days were very frightening.
“I started to have really vivid, terrifying nightmares where I would wake up screaming and crying even though I couldn’t quite remember what the nightmares were.”
She said her dreams became even worse when co-star Kate Garraway’s husband, Derek Draper, was left in a critical condition after falling ill with the virus.
