Piers Morgan Talks About The Time He Was Spiked
Piers Morgan is known for many things - but having a big old rave isn't one of them.
Yet it turns out the presenter danced for eight hours straight on one occasion in his early 20s after being spiked.
The topic came up on Good Morning Britain this morning (Wednesday 9 October) as Morgan and co-host Susanna Reid watched footage of Extinction Rebellion protesters dancing at a spot in Smithfields, East London.
Chiming up, 54-year-old Piers said: "The last time I danced like that was in my early twenties when somebody slipped something into my drink."
A shocked Susanna asked: "Did they?"
Piers responded: "They did. I never found out what it was but I danced like that for about eight hours."
Then, to top it all off in embarrassing fashion, Piers added with an American accent (for some reason): "I was twisting my melons, man."
Why someone would spike a young Piers Morgan is unclear, though one can only imagine the sheer volume of s**** he chatted for those eight hours.
Piers was in a much less groovy kind of mood when debating climate change with Skeena Rathor - and by debating, I mean that thing where he shouts over his guests and barely provides them with an opportunity to respond. Hey, it's his schtick.

Along with the textbook debate and the surprising anecdote, Piers also threw a nice little blunder into the show for good measure, when he apparently read from the auto-cue to say: "Time check, it's 6.41am."
Susanna was quick to correct him and said: "You don't say 'time check'."
Naturally, Piers insisted he'd made the gaffe on purpose.
He said: "I read 'time check' to annoy you. If you don't want me to say 'time check', don't put it in the auto-cue.
"It has a list of numbers that make no sense to anyone. Why is that in the auto-cue? Why do we need to see it?"
Susanna had the last laugh, though.
She said: "You have seen Anchorman, haven't you? You don't read out everything on the screen."
All in a morning's work for Piers, eh?
