Piers then added that the huge fee they are reported to be receiving was an impressive achievement as he insisted their combined production experience could be "written on the back of a postage stamp."

He added: "Their entire joint CV would read something like: 'Meghan was a suitcase girl on Deal or No Deal and an actress on Suits, a TV show made in Canada. And Harry's shown some real thespian promise with his hostage video performances on camera during lockdown."
