Piers Morgan gives fans a rare glimpse of his family at fun Easter get together

PIERS Morgan gave fans a rare glimpse of his family over the Easter weekend.

He teased his nearest and dearest with a cheeky dig alongside a snap of 17 members of his clan, including his mother Gabrielle and stepdad Glynne Pughe-Morgan.

Piers wrote on Instagram: "Lovely Easter Sunday gathering of my uncensored and ever-so-slightly unhinged family."

His former Good Morning Britain co-star Susanna Reid penned beneath the snap: "What a GREAT photo!"

And his niece Georgia Tomlinson teased back: "Unhinged… speak for yourself!"

As a fan said: "The new cabinet #PM4PM (Piers Morgan for Prime Minister)"

Piers has said he wants to "uncancel those who have been cancelled" and branded his departure from ITV last year a "farce" as he prepares to launch news channel TalkTV.

TalkTV will launch with shows from Piers, Sharon Osbourne and Tom Newton Dunn on Monday April 25.

"I thought the whole thing was a farce and I'm delighted that actually, as a result of the farce, we've ended up with a whole network which is now dedicated to preventing that kind of farce from recurring," Piers said.

"You shouldn't be shamed or vilified or cancelled for having an opinion, unless you genuinely are spewing hateful bigoted stuff," he added, speaking ahead of the channel launch.

"I don't intend to do that; I've never done that before in my broadcasting time. I want to be a broad church to any kind of view."

Speaking alongside Osbourne, who appeared via video from the US, he explained: "I want to re-platform those who've been de-platformed.

"I want to uncancel those who have been cancelled. I want to basically make a point that cancel culture is as dangerous to society, in its own way, in terms of its attack on free speech and freedom of expression as coronavirus has been.

"And could be over the next few years and decades actually more dangerous.

"So, I think if a democracy, like ours, or America or Australia, where this show will be airing, if a democracy loses that sense of what free speech means, and stops defending an individual's right to an opinion, you're not a democracy.

"This show, I hope, and the network will be standing up for democracy."

Osbourne will appear on hour-long panel debate show The Talk, which will air at 9pm.

She said: "This is a whole new thing for me to be involved in the beginning of a network and to be on a network that doesn't stand for one thing.

"Because usually, and especially here in America, a network stands for the right or the left, or whatever it is. This is just basically the news with different people's views on it, by experts mainly, I'm not an expert, but I've definitely got an opinion on everything.

"It's new, it's innovative, it's a place for everyone that's interested in what's happening in the world to go to, without being told what they should be thinking.

"We're not telling anybody that they shouldn't be thinking the way we think, we're just expressing and opening up the conversation for people to take on even at home after we finish talking."

She left US chat show The Talk, which aired on CBS, following an on-air row with her co-host Sheryl Underwood, after the pair clashed in March 2021 while discussing Piers's comments about the Duchess of Sussex's interview with Winfrey.

He left ITV after storming off the set of Good Morning Britain when he said he did not believe Meghan's claims from her Oprah Winfrey interview.

His comments sparked more than 50,000 complaints, the most in Ofcom's history, but the watchdog ruled that Good Morning Britain was not in breach of the broadcasting code.
