Piers Morgan was criticised after he gave fans a glimpse of his messy home.

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan took to his social media yesterday to share a snap of him and his daughter tuning into a Sunday afternoon football game.

The ITV presenter is an avid supporter of Arsenal football club and was enjoying the game with his daughter Elise.

Sharing a photo of the young girl watching the sports game on his Instagram page, Piers Morgan wrote alongside the snap, ‘Elise not happy with that first half performance. Wants @aubameyang97 to get more of the ball’.

But rather than join Piers’ conversation about the football game, followers were more distracted by the TV star’s messy living room.

‘Messy house 🤔,’ wrote one follower alongside the photo, while another quipped, ‘Housekeeper needs to tidy up!’.

And a lot of them seemed pretty distrubed by the many wires that could be seen behind the TV, with one writing, ‘Jaysis Piers, the wires from your television are giving me anxiety 😂😂’.

‘I’m not happy with all those untidy wires!!!!😳,’ echoed another, while others added, ‘Your tv/av cable management is appalling!’, ‘Good lord sort out the wires!! 😂’ and ‘Need some order to them wires @piersmorgan’.

And that wasn’t the only thing that eagle-eyed viewers pointed out.

Many of them noticed something quite interesting about the pile of books that Piers had on his coffee table - they were all written by him.

Why have you got 3 copies of your own book? 🤔,’ questioned one perplexed follower, while another jokingly echoed, ‘Why the hell have you got 3 copy of you're own book? Trying to boost up sales 😂😂😂😂’.

Others complemented the star’s clever positioning, writing, ‘Subtle product placement there mate, ‘Product placement alert!! 😂📖📖’, ‘Book strategically placed I see @piersmorgan 😂👍🏻’ and ‘Absolutely perfect product placement right there!!!! 😂’.

And some even poked fun at the star, commenting, ‘Now we know who has bought most of your books!’, ‘So it’s you , that’s buying all those books 😜😜😜’, ‘How many of your new book do you need😂thats one way of making it a best seller😂’ and ‘Look at all that reading material! Did you mention you had a new book out piers? ... must of missed it 😁’.

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
