Piers, 54, revealed he was flying out on Wednesday during an interview with Susanna on Loose Women on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Susanna was "sitting further down the plane" than Piers, who made the joke on the chat show.

Susanna, 49, was shocked when Piers said "tomorrow", and she replied: "Oh right. Well, I've got a few more days at work."

While Piers mocked: "Susanna goes a bit more down the plane than me..."
