In an even more unlikely turn of events than England winning their Ashes test, Piers Morgan has eaten humble pie today after being proved wrong - but it could see him attempt to become the next Pope.
Back in June, the television personality tweeted…
Alastair Cook thinks his current KP-less England team will regain the Ashes this summer.
In other news, I will be elected Pope in August.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) June 3, 2015
Looks like he’s got 23 days to get to the Vatican.
In fairness to Morgan, he seemed ready for the inevitable mocking that his comments would attract…
Before eventually admitting:
Right, time for lunch.August 8, 2015
Many Twitter users were quick to poke fun at Morgan, including Olympic rower Matthew Pinsent…
“@piersmorgan: Cook thinks his KP-less Eng team will regain the Ashes.

@piersmorgan Good luck with the new job as Pope— Alisdair Howie (@ahowie72) August 8, 2015
But could Morgan actually be serious?
To all those kindly posting my old Ashes/Pope tweet, 2 things:
1) It’s not the end of August.
2) I’m a Catholic, so I qualify.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) August 8, 2015
We’ve got the rest of August to find out…
