London: Piers Morgan believes that he is now a pin-up for both men and women, as he even gets underwear sent to him in the post.
In an exclusive interview with TV Magazine, the 47-year-old broadcaster revealed that his fame has attracted some unusual attention.
“I’ve always been a huge sex symbol, so it comes as no surprise to me that I’ve now got a fan club from the opposite sex and the same sex as a matter of fact,” the Sun quoted him as sasying.
“I’ve had the odd pair of knickers sent to me. It’s a perk of the job.
“I even had one woman who was convinced she was my wife. She managed to get up 20 flights into my office and walked in to ask what I wanted for dinner tonight,” he said.
He said that he knows exactly why he receives the saucy gifts, and it’s not because of his good looks.
“Look, it’s simple - however hideously ugly you are, as soon as you get on television you instantly get people wanting to make unbridled passionate love to you,” he said.
