Piers Morgan, 55, was joined by former Boxing star Chris Eubank, 54, on his Life Stories series last night as he gave an insight into his career as well as personal life. At the end of the show, Chris left many viewers confused after he spoke candidly of how he would like to be remembered.
Ending the show, Piers asked: “If you could write your own Epitaph, what would you say about yourself? How would you like to be remembered?”
Chris replied: “How would I like to be remembered? Maybe reading the pale blue dot and the pale blue dot may sum up what we have to do as humans.”
Confused, Piers quizzed: “What do you mean the pale blue dot?”
Chris continued: “It’s a philosophy that was recited by Carl Sagan, the former scientist.
“That dot from the sun is how we the earth looks.
They wrote: “Could you kindly @piersmorgan explain in clear English for me what the hell @ChrisEubank just said about the blue dot regarding being remembered. It went a little over my head.”
Quoting the tweet, Piers has since admitted he was also unsure of the meaning.
He wrote to his 7.7 million followers on Twitter: “I’m still not entirely sure… but I loved the way he said it.”
The tweet started a debate with many of Piers’ followers sharing what they thought the boxing star meant.

One wrote: “It’s very inspirational. It points out that if you take a look at the world from a greater distance, your perspective can be changed & you realise how tiny it looks in comparison to the universe. So the importance is on us to take care of it & of each other.”
A second echoed: “I think Chris was rightly pointing out that if you look at that blue dot from the sun, it shows how insignificant we all are among this huge universe.
“I love Chris’s philosophy on Life. We should all be that humble.”
A third disagreed: “Chris Eubank speaks in riddle form.”
Others went on to talk about how they think the show should have been longer.
One wrote: “I think the one hour didn’t do enough justice.
“2 hours would be more appropriate for such a large character as @ChrisEubank.”
Piers Morgan’s Life stories will continue on Thursday on ITV at 9pm.
