Piers Morgan said that he’ll be taking the Tube to the National Television Awards on Tuesday night, and some are horrified.
The TV personality, 58, uploaded an Instagram photo of himself on the Tube wearing a fine suit, causing people to wonder why he isn’t being chauffeured to the glittering event.
Piers, who is up for best TV interview at the award, didn’t seem delighted with the idea that he’d chosen a particularly hot day to ride the Tube, and wore a little puzzled frown.
He captioned his photo: ‘On way to the @officialntas – first time on the tube in 30+ years. Hasn’t got any cooler has it.’
Beneath his photo, one person exclaimed: ‘What!’ while someone else quipped, ‘First time in 30 years?!!’
Someone else commented: ‘A true man of the people.’
Other remarks included: ‘Why not get a taxi or an Uber?’ and ‘Thought you would have been chauffeur driven Piers.’
‘What no chauffeur Piers?’ echoed another Instagrammer.
The final list of nominees for this year’s ceremony was published last month, with Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly – once again – generating anticipation that another best TV presenter award may be on the way.
While some recognisable names and series were on the shortlist, from Alison Hammond to The Chase, there were some significant absences, including no mention of Holly, former This Morning host Phillip Schofield, or Prince Harry, following his bombshell interview with ITV.
Deborah James is being rewarded in the written documentary category for her film Bowelbabe in Her Own Words, which broadcast on the BBC about her life after being diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer and dying in June 2022 at the age of 40.
Other nominations include musician Lewis Capaldi for his show How I’m Feeling Now, Busted’s Matt Willis for his video Fighting Addiction, and former professional rugby league player Rob Burrow’s Living with MND, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2019.
