Piers Morgan in heated spat with Edwina Currie over ‘shambolic’ Boris Johnson

Good Morning Britain erupted into chaos this morning after Piers Morgan and Edwina Currie entered a very heated debate.

The 55-year-old journalist kicked off the debate with former Conservative politician Edwina Currie, Professor John Aston and former Speaker of the House John Bercow when he questioned Prime Minister Boris Johnson's "shambolic" handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Professor Ashton was the first to share his views as he voiced that he feels like "nothing has been learned since April".

He said: "It feels like we’re back in April and nothing has been learned.

"Somebody needs to own this mess because lives are at stake here."

Piers then raised the question surrounding the latest Covid-19 mystery in the UK about the government initially failing to include 16,000 people who had tested positive for the virus off of the latest official figures.

The father-of-three insisted that the error had put lives at risk.

He ranted: "Every single week brings a new shambles!"

Currie then piped up defending the Government as she insisted it wasn't true.

The former Conservative politician said: "No they didn’t!

"They were all given their tests and were all able to do what they needed to do and self-isolate."

Piers interrupted: "Edwina! The spreadsheet collapsed and none of the contacts of those 16,000 people were contacted.

"How can you defend it?"

She replied: "You’re doing most of the talking again!"

It comes after Piers asked "what the f**k" Donald Trump, who has coronavirus, was thinking for going against medical advice and leaving hospital to meet his fans outside for a controversial 'drive-past' event.

The President of the United States was admitted to hospital over the weekend after testing positive for coronavirus.

It comes after he spent months vilifying masks and recently poking fun at political rival Joe Biden for wearing face protection during their debate.

Trump, 74, left his hospital bed on Sunday to go for a drive so he could wave to his adoring fans outside despite having "severe Covid-19 symptoms".
