We’ve all had bad days, but yesterday was a particularly hideous 24 hours for Piers Morgan.
Arsenal-supporting Morgan took to social media to rue his ‘day from Hell’ yesterday, which saw him experience labour pain, be the victim of a theft, and then watch miserably as rivals Tottenham completed an incredible comeback to reach the Champions League final.
The former Daily Mirror editor was hooked up to a TENS machine to experience labour pain live on Good Morning Britain, after previously stating childbirth couldn’t be as hard as it looked.
Obviously he was wrong, and hours after screeching in pain on our screens, he was the victim of a theft, when £650 of golfing equipment was stolen from his car.
He then had to swallow some humble pie after mocking Tottenham fans at half time when Spurs found themselves 2-0 down to Ajax in the Champions League semi-final - only to make a complete turn around in the second half to win the match 3-2, enough to see them through to the final of the competition.
Making reference to his awful day, Morgan tweeted: “MORNING: Nearly killed on live TV by childbirth simulator. LUNCH: Golf clubs stolen from car. EVENING: Spurs come back from 3-0 down to make CL Final. This has been the day from Hell. Night.”

LUNCH: Golf clubs stolen from car.
EVENING: Spurs come back from 3-0 down to make CL Final.
This has been the day from Hell.
The 54-year-old’s earlier gloating made the eventual outcome all the worse. With Tottenham losing at half-time, lifelong Arsenal fan Morgan tweeted former Tottenham chairman Alan Sugar: “OOPS. 2-0. You OK, Shuggsy @Lord_Sugar?”
But Sugar had the last laugh, and when the comeback was complete, he responded: “Hey Piersy you must be sick do you still want the bet we win the CL 10k to Great Ormond Street Hospital.”

So regardless of the result of the final, which will be competed by Tottenham and Liverpool, £10,000 is guaranteed to go to a good cause - perhaps someone could give Morgan £10,000 to stay quiet for a few days?
