Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan has let his haters down, revealing that he's "not dying" in an Instagram post.

In the upload, Piers is pictured in a hospital bed wearing a gown, with an oxygen tube through his nose, and although he didn't go into specifics, he assured his followers that it wasn't anything too serious.

"Bad news: I'm not dying," he wrote. "I can only apologise for all the distress I know this will cause some people."

It's not the first time he's been under the weather recently. Speaking on GMB in December, Piers revealed: "Doctor Hilary [Jones] yesterday diagnosed me and said, 'Don't worry, you're over the worst'.

"I ended up in hospital yesterday and got diagnosed with bronchitis, laryngitis and Sinusitis. Thanks Hilary."

Doctor Hilary explained to Piers: "It's run its course, you've been suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection.

"By soldiering on, it probably kept the virus going a little bit. You are over the worst of it though.

"It doesn't normally last several weeks, but at this time of year it's not unusual."

He also previously said that he'd had to cancel his New Year's Eve plans, writing on Instagram: "Wildest New Year's Eve for decades... went to bed at 8.59pm with two strong Italian Tachipirinas & had one helluva steamy sleepless night.

"Hope yours was anywhere near as wild. Happy New Year!"

Despite his poor health, Piers is already embroiled in yet another Twitter feud – this time with Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner.
