MOST of the food at Piers Morgan’s 50th birthday party remained uneaten, it has been confirmed.
The former Daily Mirror editor rented out his local social club for the event and spent thousands of pounds on catering and entertainment.
Norman Steele, who lives across the road from the club, said: “He obviously made a big effort. I could hear the music from the disco. I didn’t see many people going in though.
“The music stopped at about nine o’clock.”
Emma Bradford, a barmaid in the social club, added: “He did look a bit disappointed. He kept pouring people drinks just to get them to stay. Alan Sugar left early claiming he had food poisoning, but he looked fine to me.
“There was a really big cake and Piers was going to give everyone a piece to take home with them, but he had to take it all home by himself.”
Despite the poor turn out, Morgan was happy that his celebrity friends had left each other voice-mails saying they would not be going.
