'Good Morning Britain' Host Piers Morgan Reveals 7 Members of His Family Have Battled COVID-19
This week a “Telegraph” columnist posed a question on social media noting how people didn’t seem to know anyone who had contracted COVID-19 and one celebrity responded with a shocking revelation.
Allison Pearson, a “Telegraph” columnist, took to Twitter noting how she’d asked many people if they knew someone who had contracted the novel coronavirus disease. She explained what her findings were.
The writer shared that hardly anyone she knew came forward to confirm any infections except two people. Pearson revealed how the people they knew, and who died, were not even close to them.
She questioned if the daily news weren’t covering the pandemic, would people even know there was one. In response to her post, “Good Morning Britain” star, Piers Morgan retweeted her post and commented.
Morgan, 55, shockingly revealed that he actually knew people in his life who had been affected. He shared how three of his close friends had lost their parents to the merciless virus.
The television personality also revealed that his colleague, Kate Garraway’s husband was currently in a coma after getting infected. More personally, the star shared that his parents were recently infected.
One of Morgan’s sons also recently battled COVID-19 while the star’s brother, wife, and their eldest daughter also had it. Last but not least, the co-host shared that his niece also contracted the virus.
That means seven of the television personality’s family members have had to battle the deadly disease. He concluded his post by giving a stern warning to Pearson and his fans, writing:
“Consider yourself lucky.”
Piers Morgan also explained that he actually realized his mistake as the car was pulling away and rectified it.
