PIERS Morgan was eager for a slice of the Quiz pie as he shared a throwback from his time on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire to mark the release of the TV docu-series.
The Good Morning Britain host, no stranger to dabbling in the pop trivia TV world for charity, looked fresh faced in the ITV hotseat as he awaited a question.
On the other side of the desk, host Chris Tarrant could be seen posing the question to see him progress up the cash ladder.
Piers, 55, had dug out the image to mark the broadcaster's new show, centred on the gripping tea-time series and the actions of cheat major Charles Ingram, who is said to have devised a coughing scheme to secure the million pound top prize.
Alongside his trip down memory lane, Piers posted on Twitter: "Watching #Quiz (which is great) & reminded of the fact I’m the only human being in the world to do Who Wants To Be A Millionaire with Ann Widdecombe & @maitlis."
Yet his comment raised eyebrows among his followers, who hinted his upload was a means to boost his own ego.
One quipped: "Watching a programme tonight & me, me, me, me, me!!"
Another then joked: "That was a long time ago Piers…. or you’ve had a hard last few years."
One hinted Piers would cheat in the same way as Charles and put: "Thought you’d cough in the end!!"
A fan then quizzed how much he had won, with Piers starring twice.
With Ann, he scooped far from the top mark at £16,000. while with Newsnight host Emily he came closer with £50,000.
His post came days after he and GMB co-host Susanna Reid had interviewed original host Chris on their breakfast series.
The telly favourite shocked viewers with his coronavirus conspiracy theory, as he suggested a bat was not to blame.
Chris, 73, said: "I find it very hard to accept that one man in China eating a bat has caused this world scale of chaos.
"I find it very hard to believe. I can't understand that at all."
Experts believe the virus transferred from animals to humans at a wet market in Wuhan, China.
Quiz, a three-part drama, continues to air on ITV.
