Piers Morgan has hit back at Jim Davidson after the comedian posted a video of himself tearing apart the Good Morning Britain presenter for criticising Boris Johnson’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
In today’s show, Piers didn’t hold back as he slammed the Prime Minister following the news Britain has reached 100,000 deaths from COVID-19.
He accused the leader of lying that the government had done everything they possibly could to minimise the “loss of life, and said Boris was not sorry “for anything he has done”.
Piers raged: “You could have done a lot more and then we wouldn’t have been in this mess. Boris is sorry, he is sorry for the 100,000 people that have died.”
Jim Davidson delivered an angry response to Piers’ comments via social media after the show had finished, stating he was “angry” and he wished he hadn’t gone on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.
The reaction was huge, and journalist Piers Morgan declared the comedian’s fury was because he’d gone “bonkers” in lockdown.
Piers replied to one of his followers called Julie, who tweeted the presenter that she was “shocked” at Jim’s video.
Piers replied: “Thanks, Julie. Sadly this pandemic has sent a lot of high-profile people like Jim Davidson bonkers, and brought out the worst in them.
“I won’t lose any sleep over it. Appreciate your support.”
Jim’s video saw the game show favourite sitting in his dressing gown in his kitchen, as it appeared the star couldn’t wait to put his point across.
“I can’t believe what I am listening to,” he said. “Talk about opportunist, Piers Morgan calling for the Prime Minister to resign because we’ve reached 100,000.
“They didn’t call for him to resign last week when we reached 98,000. Why are people so mad about figures, we had 100,000 people die.
“No one knew about this virus and Piers is saying ‘What did the Prime Minister do?’ Piers, you make me so angry,” Jim continued.
“I am ashamed to have sat in front of you and told you my life story.
“You don’t deserve to listen to my life story.
“You don’t deserve to listen to anyone’s life story because you don’t f*****g listen,” he added.
