Piers Morgan has paid an unexpected tribute to his ex-wife Marion Shalloe.
Together they have three sons, while Piers has another daughter from his current marriage to Celia Walden.
What did Piers Morgan say?
It came after Susanna Reid gave a “frosty” speech about her former co-host on the show.
Writing in his column, Piers quipped that Marion spoke about him “more fondly” than Susanna did at the time.
Even my real ex-wife talks more fondly about me than that
He said: “Jeez, even my real ex-wife talks more fondly about me than that (and, in fact, did so overnight in a very supportive message).
“I got an instant flurry of new texts from bemused friends asking if we’d fallen out.”
Piers clarified that the pair hadn’t fallen out, but he thought Susanna felt “angry and sad” at him leaving.

Despite their divorce, Piers and Marion are still friends.
The couple – who were married between 1991 to 2008 – share three sons, Spencer, Stanley and Albert.
Meanwhile, in 2009, the former newspaper editor opened up on their “horrendous” split.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said: “The divorce was a pretty horrendous experience – all divorces are deeply unpleasant.
“The day Marion and I got divorced, I said, ‘You know what? We can both go away feeling awful about this, but let’s never mention it again.’
“I don’t regret it because these things happen, but I’m pleased that we’ve stayed good friends, because it’s important for your kids.”
Piers slams Alex Beresford
Furthermore, Piers also accused Alex Beresford of “trying to make name for himself” while in his column.
The pair famously clashed following a discussion about the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, on GMB.
Writing in the Mail, Piers said: “I don’t mind outside guests trying to make a name for themselves by whacking me like this, but I wasn’t going to sit there and take it from one of my own team, especially someone who I’ve gone out of my way to help whenever he’s asked me for advice about his career.
“Realising I might say something I’d regret, I decided to leave the studio to cool down.”
Alongside a snap of himself, he wrote: “Remember, the sun still rises and sets so beautifully some place in the world every day.”
