Celia Morgan (née Walden; born 30 December 1975 in Paris, France) is a British journalist, novelist and critic. She is the daughter of former Conservative Party Member of Parliament George Walden and wife of the television presenter Piers Morgan.
Walden, who was educated at Westminster School and Cambridge University, is a feature writer and former gossip columnist. She was the last editor of The Daily Telegraph's now defunct diary "Spy". She previously wrote for the Daily Mail. Her first novel Harm's Way was published in 2008.
On June 24, 2010, she married Piers in a private ceremony in the Oxfordshire village of Swinbrook. Piers announced in Spring 2011 that the couple were expecting a child and on November 25, 2011, Walden gave birth to Elise Morgan, her first child and Piers' fifth.
On March 24, 2011, Walden wrote a column in The Daily Telegraph expressing her hatred of cyclists - fair weather cyclists in particular. The end of her article read "[…] and of course this lot are so confident on the roads that they will all be plugged into their iPods, calmly humming 'lalalalala' along to Sasha Distel as that articulated lorry indicates left". The article was published in the same week that a cyclist in central London had been killed by a heavy goods vehicle (HGV).
