Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 55, praised his wife Celia Walden, 44, for perfecting her cookery skills during lockdown. In fact, Piers came to appreciate her homemade meals a lot more than he ever before. The ITV star has been married to fellow journalist Celia, who currently writes for The Telegraph, since 2012 and he joked that she must have felt very “lucky” to see so much of him while they were holed up in their luxury London dwelling together.
Piers, like many of us, relished the time spent with his family time during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, which saw UK residents only able to leave their homes for essential needs and daily exercise.
But it wasn’t all bad as the controversial presenter learnt something new about his wife in the process.
In a recent interview, he laughed: “I think my wife felt very lucky she got to see so much of me.
“And if you believe that you’ll believe anything!”
He admitted they just “cracked on” with it, because what else was there to do?
But he did have a little confession.
“She turned out to be a much better cook than I thought she was,” he told OK! magazine.
“She really polished up her cooking skills.”
And it looks like he could be getting to taste more of her homemade dishes if England plunges into a second lockdown.
Throughout the chaos, Piers hasn’t shied away from holding the government to account and encouraged his fans to take the virus seriously in order to protect themselves, others and the NHS.
He has been called all the names under the sun, but it’s like water off a duck’s back to the ITV stalwart.
But what was a heartfelt plea, ended up dividing fans and Piers was forced to address all those who criticised his opinion.
In a separate tweet, he added: “Can all Covidiots please just unfollow me and f**k off.
“This 2nd wave is extremely serious & I’m not interested in your insane conspiracy theories, your dumb fake charts, your ‘proof’ that covid’s ‘not as bad as the flu’ – or any of your ignorant abusive garbage.
“Our health & care workers are facing another incredibly tough, challenging & dangerous few months. I wish them all the very best of luck & thank each and every one for their heroic service.”
Piers pointed out that it is the government’s “duty” to make sure the economy is stable and jobs are safe if we have to go into another lockdown, but the unwelcome responses kept on coming.
