Heather Mills hits back at Piers Morgan in voicemail row

MPs call for Piers Morgan to answer hacking questions in UK

Piers Morgan faces growing demands to return to Britain to answer questions on alleged phone hacking at the Mirror Group while he was editor of the Daily Mirror.

Piers Morgan under fire from Heather Mills hacking claim

James Hewitt, the former lover of Diana, Princess of Wales, last night reignited his dispute with Britain's tabloid press – and the former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan in particular – by demanding that the Metropolitan Police reopen its investigation into the theft of love letters written by the Princess. He has instructed solicitor Charlotte Harris to pursue the matter.

McIntyre hurt by 'nasty' remarks of fellow comics on awards night

Letter from the editor: Views are my own

Many of my fellow journalists, when they sign on to Twitter, add a little rider to their biography which states: “Views are my own”.

Dom Joly: One moment, tweeting fun. Next, a cell with Piers Morgan

It's been a very weird week. I'm still on my never-ending tour of the UK, being driven from one place to another, one lonely dressing room to the next. I spend a lot of time on Twitter whiling away the solitary hours.

Letter from the editor: The narcotic quality Twitter posesses

I have now been on Twitter for about 24 hours, I’ve got 550 followers and counting, and I’ve tweeted eight times (don’t worry: you’ve not missed anything important).

Morgan's modest viewing figures give his critics plenty to chat about

For a man who uses Twitter to broadcast his every thought, deed, and minor foray into the public eye, Piers Morgan has been surprisingly slow to update followers about the smattering of fresh headlines that pertain to the performance of his nightly talk show on the rolling news channel CNN.

Dom Joly: 'It's such a relief to stop reading tweets,' I tweeted

The heat is driving Britain crazy. Wandering around London last week, every square was packed as though host to some curious hippy festival. People sat nose to nose trying to find enough elbow room to open their pre-packed sandwiches. It's at times like this that I thank the Lord I moved to the country. As soon as I could I hot-footed it back home. One of the few benefits of having fractured four metatarsals is that I have been given a chauffeur- driven car for my convalescence. Like all luxuries, it takes minutes to get accustomed to. I now wonder how I got through life without having a man in a Merc permanently at my beck and call.

Editor-At-Large: Does Ed believe in marriage, or is he merely canvassing?

Once, a marriage announcement was a reason for celebration; now, it's a cause of embarrassment. God forbid Ed Miliband's forthcoming nuptials should offend anyone and lose him a single vote. Here's the deal: he's not bothering with a best man. There won't be a big party. In fact, the couple are not even going to stay the night at the nice hotel where they're having a small reception. And any honeymoon (however modest) will probably be postponed. I doubt Justine will wear white. She probably won't buy a new dress but do a bit of recycling. In other words, it's going to be a low-key event, in complete contrast with the royals.

Cooper Brown: Cricket

I’m back up in town and having to watch the World Cup of cricket. WTF is that all about? It’s quarter final time which means that great cricketing nations like Ireland and The Netherlands are out and the “big boys” are in.
