When asked how many people had agreed with him, the father-of-four focused on those who had come for those closest to him.
He stated: “All I can say is, there were 57,000 complaints against me, which was driven by an online mob.
“Who came for me all day, came for members of my family, who were abusing my sons all day long. Issuing death threats to them.”
Piers is dad to Spencer, 27, Stanley, 23, and Albert, 20, who he shares with his first wife Marion Shalloe.
