Piers Morgan wins Secret Crush poll

Share article:

Piers Morgan has been named the public's biggest secret crush.

The "Good Morning Britain" presenter received more votes than the rest of the top five combined in Heat magazine's annual poll, and four times as many as runner-up Lee Mack.

The delighted star said: "I think heat magazine readers are just a more discerning kind of magazine reader, they have a very high bar for their aesthetic likes and this has proven it...

"My particular thoughts at this difficult moment are with Lord Sugar who was one of the other people on the longlist. To be fair to him he's had a very massive crush on his face for quite some time from a 2-ton anvil that landed on it 50 years ago, rendering it such an abomination.

"I feel for him and I feel for Kanye West, poor old Kim Kardashian's woken up to the fact that more people fancy me than her husband, that's not a good morning for her.
