Piers Morgan denies he's Home Alone pigeon lady

Piers Morgan was forced to deny he’s the pigeon lady in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York on today’s Good Morning Britain.

The broadcaster insisted that he does not play the notorious character, which was portrayed by Brenda Fricker in the 1992 movie, when co-host Susanna Reid presented him with a side-by-side image bearing an uncanny resemblance.

‘Why does this keep coming around?’ Piers demanded.

‘Because frankly it is the best picture,’ Susanna replied. ‘Because lots of people watch Home Alone 2 and wonder if this is you, Piers Morgan.’

‘It’s not me,’ Piers insisted. ‘I’m not the bag lady in Home Alone 2.’

‘You are the pigeon lady in Home Alone 2,’ Susanna said, as she described the pigeon lady’s role in the hit film.

‘Your character helped save Kevin when he’s cornered in the park by the wet bandits,’ she continued.

‘It’s not my character,’ Piers quipped. ‘I’m nothing to do with it.’

Piers then took the opportunity to remind viewers he’s starred in a total of 10 films, including Flight (2012) and Entourage (2015).

Viewers were in stitches over the comparison on social media, and raced to comment.

‘We’ve never seen you and the pigeon lady in the same room have we?’ one viewer observed.

While echoing a similar sentiment, another added: ‘@susannareid100 have you ever seen the pigeon lady and @piersmorgan together?’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
