But behind his TV persona is a loving family man. Piers has been married to second wife Celia Walden since 2010, having started dating in 2006. The couple tend to keep their private life out of the spotlight, but Celia has made several appearances on GMB, even revealing that she's the one who wears the trousers in their marriage.

Celia Walden and Piers Morgan's marriage

Celia and Piers started dating in 2006, before getting married in 2010 in Swinbrook, Oxfordshire. Celia previously opened up about her marriage while on Good Morning Britain in May 2018, revealing that she very much wears the trousers in their marriage. When asked if she does, she said: "Uhh yes, I think so! I think women are always quietly in charge, I just think it's best to let the men think that they are." Celia also gets on well with Piers' GMB co-host, Susanna Reid, and has shared a photo of the trio on social media in the past.
