Piers Morgan reveals painted portrait of HIMSELF in his living room as he shares rare glimpse inside his London home

PIERS Morgan has revealed that he has a painted portrait of HIMSELF in his living room as he shared a rare glimpse inside his London home.

The 55-year-old star showed off his extensive art collection in the candid snap – with his own face a prominent part of it.

The Good Morning Britain presenter took to his Instagram page yesterday as he shared his dismay after his nine-year-old daughter Elise beat him at chess in just four moves.

He posted a snap of her doing a victory dance in the living room, captioning the sweet pic: "I knew letting her watch Queen’s Gambit was a mistake.

"She’s just beaten me in 4 moves. I will never live this down. 🙈🙈"

The photo offered fans a rare opportunity to nose around Piers' home, which isn't often exposed on social media.


The London pad has a classic and cosy feel, with the star's classy chess board at the front and centre of the photo.

The wooden game is on top of a circular wooden table, which had stone coasters and a potted succulent on either side.

A large black fireplace is framed with a white marble-look border, and a statue can be seen on the centre of the mantelpiece – as well as the painting of Piers.

The small canvas details the star's face close-up, and the TV presenter was obviously thrilled with the results as he has it prominently on display.


A larger piece of artwork is in a gilded gold frame above the fire, but what it is of is out of shot.

There are three other framed pieces of art on the walls, with one appearing to be a scenic shot while the others are obscured by Elise's arms.

There is also a framed black and white photo of Piers' wife Celia Walden on top of one of two small white bookcases.


Each case is overspilling with books, and a cosy armchair inbetween the two offers the perfect reading spot.

The green chair has been adorned with a large patterned cushion – and the wooden feet perfectly match the room's wooden floorboards.

Elise is wearing pink trousers and a denim jacket in the photo, with her back to the camera as she jubilantly raises both arms into the air.

She is Piers' youngest child and his only with Celia; the star also dad to 27-year-old Spencer, 23-year-old Stanley, and 20-year-old Bertie with ex wife Marion Shalloe.
