Piers Morgan has reassured fans he's 'not dying' as he shocked his Instagram followers by posting a picture from a hospital bed.

Accompanying the post on Instagram, the DailyMail.com editor-at-large wrote: 'Bad news: I'm not dying. I can only apologise for all the distress I know this will cause some people.' 

The television personality has been battling bronchitis, laryngitis and sinusitis over the Christmas period, which he described as 'the trifecta of hell for TV presenting'. 

The star's most recent appearance on Good Morning Britain was on Wednesday. 

The meat-lover has been causing havoc on Twitter in recent weeks after he was furious to discover that Gregg's have brought out a vegan sausage roll. 

He tried one on the show and pretended to vomit live on air, leading fans to speculate if this was the cause of his health concerns.

In actual fact, Piers wrote on Twitter that he had actually been forced to cancel his New Year's Eve plans because of how unwell he was feeling.

He wrote: 'Wildest New Year’s Eve for decades... went to bed at 8.59pm with two strong Italian Tachipirinas & had one helluva steamy sleepless night.

'Hope yours was anywhere near as wild. Happy New Year!' 

It comes a year after an eagle-eyed viewer from the charity Melanoma UK spotted Morgan may have been suffering from skin cancer during a TV appearance.

Morgan was advised to get it checked, and a horrified doctor removed the mark, which had not been bleeding or recently changed shape, within an hour.

He was later given the all clear, but the doctor told him the blemish would almost certainly have turned cancerous within months.

Piers was temporarily taken off air on last Wednesday's episode of the hit breakfast show after he made a playful jibe at the crew's 'abilities' with his teleprompter.

Piers started bickering with co-host Susanna Reid, 48, after she mocked him for not reading the screen correctly. 

He retorted: 'It said earlier that it was the paper review and we didn't have the papers so I don't believe entirely what I am seeing on that screen.

'I have lost confidence in the gallery's ability to deliver.

'They're a bit like Theresa May at the moment - they promise on that screen what we have and then nothing happens.'

The screen suddenly went black, taking Piers and Susanna off air. And when the cameras turned back on, the torment continued, with the focus on co-host Charlotte Hawkins, rather than Piers.   

Piers cheekily continued: 'They have got the ultimate power.

'They can yank the plug. And then viewers would rebel and you'll all have to lose your jobs.'
