Photos/Video: Piers Morgan screams in pain as he experiences labour pain

Piers Morgan experienced the feeling of labour pains through a simulation machine on Good Morning Britain today.

The presenter, 54. who has previously admitted that he suffered during the birth of his daughter, was put to the test as he was attached to a TENS machine.

'It's a tough old ordeal for men, too,' he told co-star Susanna Reid, before undergoing the experiment. 'It's the constant ferrying of coffee, papers, magazine, and making all the calls.'

'I became perilously close to missing a big Arsenal European game. I had to negotiate it and ended up watching it in the delivery room.'


The segment of the show asked whether men suffer in silence during their partner's labour and whether they can stand the real pain of childbirth.

But as the electrical impulses started, it wasn't long before the father-of-four was gritting his teeth, screaming, and begging for the 'agony' to stop.

Stefan, a scientist from the Netherlands, had attached four sticky pads to Piers' stomach which were hooked up to the machine.

'You send electrical impulses to those patches,' explained Susanna. 'Around the 50-60 mark is similar to the beginning of childbirth, or the first contractions.'

And viewers were left in hysterics when the presenter yelped out and asked 'woah what number is that?' - before being told it was 'zero.'

Starting at twenty, he let out a yelp and admitted 'that's already uncomfortable,' before being reminded by Susanna: 'Remember, you have to stay at home during this period of time, you're not even allowed to go into hospital.'

With the pain getting too much, Piers decided to stand up but as the strength of the impulses were notched up to forty, he screamed, before joking: 'I've got to dig deep and man up!'

And by the time the gadget had increased to sixty to replicate the beginning of childbirth, Piers couldn't take any more and shouted: 'that's enough.'

Kate Garraway, who watched the experiment from the back of the set came running on and explained to Piers how '65 is the early level of contractions before a woman is given gas and air'.

'Would you like to apologise?' Susanna asked.

'On balance, the women of Great Britain, I probably owe you a slight apology,' he admitted. 'I'm very glad we don't have to go through this.'

'I've got to say that was agony. If that's what you honestly go through, my respect for women, in terms of childbirth, has gone through the roof.'

He added: 'That was painful. I'm never again going to make any comment about childbirth. That was absolute torture.'

'If every man did that for five minutes, we'd never joke about childbirth ever again. it was absolute agony. That's put things into proper perspective.'

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
