Morgan Leaves Bride Behind For King Job
British TV star PIERS MORGAN will leave his wife behind in England when he takes over the reins of LARRY KING LIVE - just months after they wed.
The former newspaper journalist has inked a deal to replace veteran host King on the late night U.S. chat show, and is expected to start his run on the CNN programme in January (11).
But his latest career move will not please his new bride Celia Walden - she is staying behind in the U.K. and admits they will have to cope with a "Nylon" relationship, jetting between New York and London for visits.
Walden tells British morning show Daybreak, "I'm still reeling from the shock. I don't know what this means for me."
When host Lorraine Kelly suggested the couple will have a "long-distance romance", Walden replied: "I suppose so. Nylon. We'll survive. It's fine."
America's Got Talent judge Morgan wed Walden in London in June (10).
