Piers Morgan’s wife, Celia Walden, 45, has taken to Instagram to poke fun at her husband after tasking him with the chore of hoovering their house. It was announced that the former Good Morning Britain presenter, 55, made the decision to leave the ITV breakfast show last Tuesday evening, following backlash over his comments about Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Faced with his first Monday morning not presenting the ITV breakfast show, Celia gave him some jobs around the house to do to keep him busy while she went to work.
The journalist shared a picture with her 36,300 followers of her disgruntled-looking husband brandishing a hoover.
Celia captioned the photo: “I want it all done by the time I get back from work.
“Also, you missed a bit.”
The couple have been married for over 10 years and have daughter Elise, nine, together.

Celia broke her silence just days after her husband’s departure from GMB, when she posted an hilarious parody video of what she looked like waking up to her husband the morning after he made the decision to leave the show.
Since 2015 the outspoken broadcaster has been getting up at 4am to ensure he is in the ITV studio to go live with co-star Susanna Reid, 50, at 6am.
The short clip shows a woman – not Celia – waking up, before turning to look towards the other side of the double bed in shock.
Text also appears on-screen, reading: “Piers Morgan’s wife waking up this morning.”
The Telegraph columnist posted the video with the caption: “Right on the money.”
The hilarious video was originally posted on Instagram by comedian Alexandra Haddow.
ITV is yet to announce a permanent replacement for the outspoken star, but Ben Shephard, who is usually seen on Thursday and Friday mornings, stepped in to host alongside Susanna.
Viewers of the breakfast show had a mixed response with some enjoying the calmer start to the week, while others branded Ben “boring” in comparison to the former outspoken host.
