He wrote in the caption: "'One day you're cock of the walk, the next you're a feather duster'.

"RIP Grande, my magnificently rebellious grandmother who died six years ago today but lives on in my spirit and many other spirits - and who regularly reminded me of that very wise life guidance."

In the comments, Piers' fans posted to tell him how sweet they found his tribute.

One said: "Awww bless your heart, what an amazing picture."

Another wrote: "Love this quote. Very true, clearly a very wise woman."

A third told him: "Very wise lady. Those shorts though..."

You look so much like Mark Zuckerberg.

And Piers' GMB co-star Richard Arnold responded: "And THERE you are. I've always said you can always trust a man with a Nan."

But a number of other followers couldn't help noticing Piers' striking resemblance in the pic to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, while others thought he looked more like the character Screech from '80s sitcom Saved by the Bell.

"You look so much like Mark Zuckerberg," said one, and another wrote, "We're just gonna pretend that Mark Zuckerberg wasn't cloned from Piers Morgan... okay".
