Piers explained in the photo that he should be celebrating the birthday in St Tropez, but has had his plans axed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Happy birthday to my Dad, who looks younger than me every year,” he wrote alongside the image.

“This pic was taken in St Tropez last year, where we would all have been again this week…doubtless celebrating with a long lunch in Club 55,” he added.

“Instead, we’ll have to settle for a Zoom chat later… c’est la nouvelle vie [this is the new life].”

Fans and celebrity friends of Piers were left shocked over how young his father looked, with Lizzie Cundy commenting: “Wow !! He looks like your brother not your Dad ! Good genes !”

A second added: “Wow! Your dad looks young. Amazing, happy birthday to him!”
