Piers Morgan dropped a huge bombshell on Tuesday's Good Morning Britain – he has a second wife!

The TV star revealed that he is "technically married" to none other than Paris Hilton after the pair 'wed' in a Las Vegas ceremony back in 2009 – only one year before he tied the knot with his current wife Celia Walden.

Taking a trip down memory lane on Tuesday's show during an interview with Perez Hilton, Piers revealed that his 'wedding' to Paris was for a show to demonstrate how easy it is to get hitched in Sin City.

"She's still my wife technically," Piers said after admitting the wedding wasn't legally binding. "We got married in Vegas for a TV show. True story, there's video of it."

Sharing clips of the 'ceremony', Piers added: "We had an Elvis lookalike, a Frank Sinatra lookalike, a Marilyn Monroe lookalike.

"She wore a beautiful bridal gown, brought a dog with her, I got to kiss the bride, we exchanged rings. My actual wife was a little bit bemused."
