Piers Morgan’s wife Celia Walden has been left unimpressed after he joked he would sleep with his Good Morning Britain co-star Susanna Reid.
But it wasn’t long before Celia expressed her dismay of her husband’s comments as she shared a photo of the magazine cover on Instagram.

The cover showed a photo of Piers and Susanna alongside the caption: “If we were both single we’d be at it like stoats in a sack.”
Celia captioned the post: “The headline every wife wants to read on a Sunday morning #mythoughtsarewithsusanna.”
Fans were amused by Celia’s post with one person commenting: “Piers is such a wind up merchant but obviously never gets one over on you. You are so funny.”
Another wrote: “I think you need a good sense of humour to be married to Piers,” while a third said: “You are one cool woman Celia.”
Piers also shared a snap of the magazine cover to Instagram alongside the caption: “Today’s @eventmagazine raises a number of questions, not least this one: what do stoats actually get up to in a sack?”
Piers and Celia married in 2010 and have daughter Elise, seven, together.
Susanna split from Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish earlier this year. She was previously married to Dominic Cotton, the father of her three teenage sons.
Meanwhile, during the interview, Piers admitted he’d deliberately set out to rile Susanna on Good Morning Britain.
He said: “She was the queen bee and I was the alpha male. I felt I needed to shake her up a bit. But then I realised I went a bit too far.”
Susanna also revealed she received abuse from trolls because of Piers’ comments.
She added: “I couldn’t believe I was getting attacked for what he actually said. People were saying horrific things about me, saying I wasn’t a feminist. Of course I am a feminist.
“And since when is it a feminist policy to blame the woman? I found the whole thing deeply upsetting.”
