“The good news for Ally is that she’s finally got someone next to her who is handsome, younger, better accent and a proven track record of smashing ratings records on breakfast television,” said a grinning Piers, who is in Australia ahead of the launch of a new show which will be show on Sky News Australia.

“It just feels like, you know, Karl who? That’s showbiz- he made the fatal strategic error of letting me sit in his chair- it just immediately feels natural.”

As Karl sat grimacing a few metres away from the desk, Piers told Ally she looked much happier and alive with her new “co-host”.

“I didn’t know what joy was for the last two years,” Ally said.

“You know what, it feels right, this chemistry, immediately – bouncing off each other,” Piers assured Ally.
