Piers Morgan, one of Meghan Markle’s staunchest critics, says he was devastated after seven of his family members tested positive for COVID-19.
The Good Morning Britain host revealed he was a ‘covidiot’ who did not follow lockdown rules.
“Three good friends of mine lost parents to covid,” Piers revealed. “My colleague Kate Garraway’s husband is in a coma from it.
“My parents just had it. One of my sons just had it. One of my brothers, his wife, & their eldest daughter just had it. My niece just had it.”
Morgan was blasted for stepping out with his wife Celia without a mask.
Writing on Twitter, he shared: “No, The Sun was right. I did breach covid rules for a few seconds by forgetting to put my mask on before I got in the cab.
“Fortunately, I remembered as we pulled away & put it on. Masks help save lives, so it’s very important we all remember to wear them when we should.”
He continued, “I haven’t made an excuse, I just explained what happened. I’m guilty as charged. For a few seconds, I was a Covidiot & I deserve the full wrath of Twitter hell to now descend on me.”
