Piers Morgan backs Cheryl idea to turn drive-thrus into coronavirus essential it

Piers Morgan has given his seal of approval to a new initiative proposed by Cheryl, where fast food restaurants can be turned into facilities to give out essential items for the coronavirus crisis. 

The Good Morning Britain host revealed he has been in close contact with the Greatest Dancer judge, who has been texting him regularly in a bid to try and figure out how to help where she can. 

Turns out, there’s one idea she’s come up with that might just be genius.

Speaking today on GMB, Piers said: ‘She said “I’ve got a mad idea, and I don’t know if it’s any good, but all the McDonalds drive-thrus have shut down, is there not a way of turning them into drive-thru operations for food and essential products, particularly for health workers?”’ 

‘I think it’s a great idea,’ he said. ‘I mean, they’re all set up to do that. All sitting there empty.

‘She wasn’t sure whether she should tweet but I’m glad she did. She got a good response.’ 

Both Piers and Cheryl admit that they don’t know the full logistics of the idea, but hope there is some way to get them off the ground. 

‘I don’t know whether anyone from McDonalds can guide us into whether they could do that, but that’s the kind of thing that could be really helpful,’ Piers then declared on the show. 

The comments come as Piers becomes more and more the voice of reason in the fight against the Covid-19 virus that has claimed 1000 lives in the UK.

The government have released a statement that claims self-isolation could be up to a period of six months with further crackdowns being implemented for those who breach the rules.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
