Celia Walden wrapped her arm around a personalized pillow of her husband Piers Morgan’s face on Monday while sunbathing.

The journalist and author, 45, said the funny item was her ‘favorite pillow’ as she uploaded the snap to social media a day before her husband’s 56th birthday.

She sided with Piers – whom she tied the knot with in 2010 – following his dramatic departure from Good Morning Britain this month in connection with his comments about Meghan Markle and her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Wearing a white T-shirt and toned shades, Celia relaxed on the grass under the glorious British sun next to the printed pillow of a jovial Piers.

She said in the accompanying Instagram caption: ‘Nice place to sunbathe with my favorite pillow’.

Earlier in March, Piers left GMB after saying he didn’t believe “a word” of Meghan’s “truth” about racism and the Royals during her bombshell Oprah interview.

The outspoken TV presenter quit the daytime series after he left insisted that he “didn’t believe a word” of her story of suffering from suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the royal family.

Piers then walked away after a fierce debate with Alex Beresford, in which the weather presenter accused Piers of unfairly ‘vandalizing’ Meghan, 39, calling him ‘devilish’.

When Piers walked away from the screen, Alex, 40, continued, “I’m sorry, but Piers spouts regularly and we have to sit there and listen.”

Piers, who declined to apologize, later announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their “ hard work and dedication ” that led to them beating their main breakfast television rival.

And the presenter shared his own reflections on the events of that fateful week in a piece for last weekend’s Mail On Sunday.

Piers called Alex “ an occasional replacement weather forecaster for GMB ” and “ tense ” in the telling report, adding that the presenter hasn’t messaged him since he left, unlike others on the show.

Thinking about their now meeting, Piers said he wouldn’t sit there and get ‘beaten’ by one of his own team.

He wrote: ‘I don’t mind outside guys trying to make a name for themselves by slapping me like this, but I wouldn’t just sit there and take over any of my own team, especially from someone I am gone out of my way to help when he asks me for advice on his career.

Realizing that I might say something I would regret, I decided to leave the studio to cool off.

As I walked away, Alex doubled over: “This is pathetic. Absolutely devilish behavior. I’m sorry but Piers spouts regularly and we all have to sit here and listen. From 6.30am to 7am yesterday it was incredibly hard to see.

‘He has the ability to come in here and talk from a position he doesn’t quite understand …’ ‘

Piers continued, “I heard nothing more of his rant when I was out the door and on my way to my dressing room.

I knew it didn’t look right, the big snowflake basher running away from the showdown. And on reflection, I shouldn’t have done it. But in the heat of battle, in my rather tense frame of mind, this seemed like the less worst option. ‘

Since Piers’ departure from the show, he has received messages from several stars, including Jeremy Clarkson and Bear Grylls, who said he had the ‘right’ to voice his opinion.

Sharon Osbourne, 68, has also expressed support for Piers during her time on the show The Talk, but it has now been shelved as CBS is “ investigating ” her behavior.

She is now reportedly receiving a “ $ 5 to $ 10 million ” payout from CBS following news that she was preparing to sue the network after being forced to quit the flagship chat show.

Sharon walks away with a minimum payout of $ 5 to $ 10 million and could say it was her decision [to leave the show], ‘said a source Page six on Monday.
