Piers Morgan was pretty pleased with himself when he received some fan mail describing him as a “national icon” – despite there being no address on the envelope.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter took to Instagram to show off his new label.
“It got to me,” he captioned his picture of the envelope with just the words “Mr Piers Morgan National Icon” written on the front of it.
Stamps on the envelope showed it had been delivered by Royal Mail, who knew exactly where to take it, even if the sender didn’t know where it was going.
One fan jokingly asked if the fan mail was from Meghan Markle, following his infamous row with the Duchess of Sussex.
His comments about Prince Harry’s wife were the reason he left his post at the ITV daytime show, with him refusing to apologise for the things he said following the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, including that he didn’t believe Meghan struggled with suicidal thoughts.
Another hopeful fan asked: “Is it from ITV sending you your new contract for GMB?”
While another quipped: “On par with Father Christmas now”
And one declared: “Piers for prime minister”
It comes after Piers declared that he’s never been more popular after storming off the set of GMB and later quitting the programme with immediate effect.
He recently wrote in the Daily Mail: “She thinks she’s beaten me? She might be in for a surprise, because I suspect I’ll be back soon. And my views certainly haven’t changed.
“If Meghan thinks she has cancelled me or won the battle, she is in for a big shock. I’ve never been more popular.”
Piers has claimed that ITV want him back on GMB, saying bosses have been in touch.
He told The Sun: “They reached out – there have been approaches. Never say never.
“I have no doubt I could take the ratings back to where I left them – but the doubt is, would anyone be allowed to do it that way again?
“I was hired to give very strong, honestly held opinions, which I did. But in the end I was asked to apologise for a genuinely held opinion.”
He even poked fun at the whole situation by posing up with a copy of the newspaper with his interview on the front page.
Pulling a face for the camera, he cheekily captioned his snap: “Well now…”
ITV showbiz presenter Richard Arnold joked: “To be clear, you’re doing the horoscopes? I’m labouring under a Mercury retrograde at the moment and as for Uranus…”

While one fan begged him: “Come back and we can all watch the morning news without falling asleep it’s so boring now”
A second agreed: “I expect their ratings have plummeted ! So boring and dull. Haven’t switched it on for weeks.”
And another told him: “I’ve not watched it since you went !”
