Piers Morgan has been enjoying a leisurely few weeks at his country home in Newick, Sussex, and revealed on Friday that his mother was staying with his family. The former Good Morning Britain presenter was treated to a lavish breakfast to kickstart the day, with his devoted mum delivering him a full English breakfast on a tray.

The hearty meal featured the usual trimmings; bacon, fried tomatoes, sausages and fried eggs as well as mounds of buttered toast… which looked completely burnt.

It wasn't long before his Instagram post was flooded with jokes from his followers, who questioned his mother's decision to plate up burnt toast.
Piers' burnt toast sparked amusing fan comments
One jested: "Where was that toast cooked..........In the fires of Hell" while another teased: "I see she used the bbq for the toast". Another hilariously remarked: "Just need to get the old girl to throttle back the toaster settings".
However, others were simply delighted to see such a sweet gesture from his mother, with friend Amanda Holden commenting: "Bless your mummy". And in amongst all the outrage, one person agreed the blackened toast was cooked "just right".
