Piers Morgan had to deny he is the pigeon lady from Home Alone

Piers Morgan had to deny he is the pigeon lady from Home Alone

I mean, the resemblance is uncanny

As well as being dragged around every family members house during the Christmas break, it’s also the time of trying to watch as many festive films as possible.

From Love Actually to Elf, they just never get old. And one of the absolute favourites just has to be Home Alone - and the sequel too, of course.

But fans reckon that film stars a certain Piers Morgan, who is pretty tired of the fun claims:

The second Home Alone movie sees Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) Lost in New York as he spends Christmas alone in the big city.

As well as bumping into Donald Trump, the little lad also becomes friends with the ‘pigeon lady’.

Well, I’m just calling her that, she doesn’t have another proper name.

But she has also been referred to as Morgan in disguise - I mean, the resemblance is uncanny.

Every Christmas the accusations begin that the pigeon lady ‘is Piers Morgan with a wig on’.

One viewer even joked on X: “@piersmorgan I just have to applaud you for your stellar acting work in Home Alone 2.”

Piers, that you?

Another put: “Annual reminder that Piers Morgan got his start as the pigeon lady in Home Alone 2.”

People are so persistent with saying the bloke played the role he ended up having to publicly deny it on TV.

Back in 2020, when he still presented Good Morning Britain, his co-host Susanna Reid claimed she could prove it.

Reid said: “Can we just have a look at Home Alone 2 because, frankly, it is the best picture.

“Because lots of people watch Home Alone 2 and wonder if this is you.”

And Morgan responded: “Why does this keep coming around? That is not me. I am not the bag lady in Home Alone 2.”

Well, he's got experience.

Reid showed ‘proof’ with a snap of him covered in pigeons for an episode in 2018, as even his own son brought it to light.

Brenda Fricker, who actually played the pigeon lady, apparently finds this whole thing hilarious too.

Although one user wrote on X: “I’d call Piers Morgan the Pigeon Lady from Home Alone but that’d be insulting to her … and to the pigeons.”


While others joked that the set of the film was where he first met Trump.

I mean, he can deny it all he likes but it really does look like him.
