Piers Morgan urges ‘Covidiot deniers’ to follow Denise Welch as feud escalates

Piers Morgan has told those who believe coronavirus is fake to follow Loose Women 's Denise Welch in the latest round of the pair's epic spat.

Last week Piers, 52, slammed Denise after she claimed on This Morning the media and government are scaremongering with news about the coronavirus.

The Good Morning Britain presenter hit out at Denise on Twitter – branding her "dumb, deluded and dangerous".

Yesterday, the feud continued when he berated the panelist, 62, again by urging "Covidiot deniers" to follow her instead of him.

He wrote to his 7.6m Twitter followers: "Memo to all Covidiot deniers & sceptics, and those who only want to hear ‘positive news’ about the pandemic even when the news is concerning: stop following me & follow Professor Denise Welch instead.

"Your mind-numbingly complacent ignorance is damaging my mental health."

Denise hit back at Piers in a post in which she described him as the prophet of doom and added a screengrab of his tweet.

The former Coronation Street star wrote: "To those who would like to live in abject fear of a virus that currently has a huge survival rate, please follow prophet of doom Piers Morgan.

"The saviour of all those living with anxiety & mental health issues."

The spat originally erupted after Denise had appeared on This Morning, arguing the media and government are scaremongering the public with Covid news.

She also added that she thought the public was being misinformed about the dangers of coronavirus, eventually being told to "calm down" by Eamonn Holmes.

She said: "I'm trying to allay the fears of somebody afraid if they go outside and touch somebody they're going to get coronavirus."

When Eamonn tried to give Dr Sara a chance to speak, Denise raised her voice, prompting him to reply: "Calm down."

Piers then took to social media and posted: "Dumb, deluded & dangerous Covid-deniers like Denise Welch need to stop being given airtime.

"Her idiotic, ill-informed ramblings – from a woman who never stops telling us that she suffers from mental illness – will cost lives by persuading people to think the virus isn’t a threat."
