When police later confirmed the incident was a false alarm, Olly came under attack on social media for spreading misinformation and panic. 

Piers was one of those who took him to task, claiming he “could have put people in more danger”, as the pair had a heated exchange on Twitter. 

After Olly confirmed he was safe and in a hotel, Piers tweeted: “Stop tweeting mate @ollyofficial. Nothing happened.”
