The apple doesn't fall far from the tree and that's certainly the case for Piers Morgan and his three lookalike sons. The presenter shared a rare photo of himself and his family during an interview on Loose Women, joking that "luckily they all have their father's looks". The group were pictured dining out at a restaurant, showing off their close bond as they wrapped their arms around each other.

When asked whether his sons Spencer, Stanley and Bertie were ever embarrassed by Piers' controversial public opinions, the GMB star replied: "Not at all. They are perfectly entitled to disagree with me and they do often vehemently disagree with me."

As the family snap flashed up on screen, Piers joked, "They have all got their father's looks," before continuing to say: "I encourage them to speak their own minds, argue with me. But if they are going to argue with me over dinner, they better come armed as I am going to take them down. Why wouldn't you want your kids to be opinionated?"

I concur with that sentiment, succeeding in that achievement 8yrs ago today."
