Piers Morgan very proud of lookalike brother who is long-serving Army officer

May 13, 2022

Piers Morgan has paid tribute to his lookalike brother today as he retired from the the army after almost four decades of service.

The 57 year old joined his brother Jeremy at the Thiepval Memorial in northern France, which had been built to commemorate the thousands of missing British and South African serviceman who died in the Battle of the Somme in the First World War.

Dressed in a sharp black suit and white shirt, the star posed beside his brother Jeremy who wore a full military uniform, while the pair reflected on the ‘outstanding’ career which led him to serve in numerous conflicts throughout the world.

In honour of the occasion, Piers wrote on Instagram: "Congrats to my brother Jeremy on his retirement from the British Army today after 37 years of service to his country including numerous war zones."

"Outstanding military career, outstanding bloke. Very proud of you Colonel.”

The admiration and respect between the pair was also clearly mutual, with Jeremy previously having spoken highly of his brother, during an interview withThe Timesback in 2010.

According to the Colonel, they would “always pull together” even when they argued.

He said: "Piers used to torment me and physically bully me when we were small. I remember him hitting me over the head repeatedly with a small, rubber yellow hammer.

"My mother couldn’t leave us alone. Later on, he’d bully me psychologically — niggle, niggle, niggle — until I got into a rage and beat him to a pulp. He fought like a girl, so he was easy to overcome."

"But I admired Piers, and when the chips were down we’d always pull together. I was just ill-equipped to deal with his sharp wit.

"He likes to verbally joust with people. He’s fallen out with Jeremy Clarkson, Ian Hislop, Jonathan Ross. He seems to enjoy long-running feuds. I was just one of his early victims."

Piers is no stranger to courting controversy, with the veteran presenter even continuing his long running feud with Meghan Markle as he launched his new TalkTV show, Piers Morgan Uncensored.

The former Britain’s Got Talent judge branded the Duchess of Sussex a “huge narcissist” over her reported plans to one day run for US President.

He was particularly irritated by comments made by Valerie Biden, the sister of current US President Joe Biden, who said Meghan would be a good potential candidate for the White House in the future, if she was serious about a political career.

“What? Is that a joke?" he fumed on the show. "Perhaps there is somebody out there less suited to becoming the leader of the Free World but I can't currently think of one."
