Piers Morgan gives a sneak peek inside a VERY star-studded Christmas party

Updated: 

A pub in London was jam-packed with what appeared to be dozens of celebrities on Christmas Eve Eve Eve and, thanks to Piers Morgan, showbiz spectators are able to get a look-in at the festive bash.

The get-together looks like a hybrid of a typical work Christmas party, with plenty of ITV and sports stars in attendance, and a goodbye celebration for departing news presenter Mark Austin.

Mark has just signed off from hosting the ITV News after 30 years and he was making sure to get a few drinks in to mark the occasion.

Piers was drinking up a storm with the likes of his 'work wife' Susanna Reid and his mother, Myleene Klass, Kevin Pietersen, Gary Lineker, Ian Wright, Ant McPartlin, Charlotte Hawkins and Robert Peston, among many others.

Not only that, but the sarcastically witty TV journalist made sure to get some wisecracks in there about his guests.

First up, it was a sweet goodbye message to his ITV colleague Mark. How sweet.

Although later on he made sure to take the Mickey, just a bit.

He also seemed to get rather amorous with editor and TV presenter Rachel Johnson.

It was the snap of Susanna and his mother that was perhaps the best part of the evening.

Cricketer Kevin was snapped by Piers holding a bottle of wine to his mouth...

And then Piers made sure to rib him for photobombing his brother Jeremy and TV's Ant, who was without Dec for once.

Check out more of the behind-the-scenes snaps at what looks like, quite frankly, a very normal party at a Kensington watering hole.

We're thrilled to see they were all on the bubbly!

And also that Camilla Kerslake put him in his place.

Myleene and Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman were seen with Glamour magazine editor Jo Elvin.

Seriously - can we come next year?
