Now, Piers has taken another swipe at Denise as he branded her a “deluded D-list celebrity”.

What did Piers Morgan say to Denise Welch?

Piers was replying to medical researcher Jeremy Farrar’s tweet about the transmission of the virus.

Jeremy’s tweet read: “Number of patients needing intensive care for Covid-19 in France rising.

“Extraordinary difficult to have increasing community transmission among the young & less at risk.

“And for that to not lead to increased transmission & illness in more vulnerable people.”

Piers replied: “You can either listen to deluded D-list celebrities like Denise Welch about coronavirus.

“Or this guy who is one of the most brilliant medical/scientific minds in the world. I suggest the latter.”

She said: “I noticed I didn’t see the other day when the news starts, bong!, nobody died in the UK because of corona-related illness.

“No, what we have is – bong! – ‘fears rise as spikes reach 1,075 a day’.

“If you’re going to frighten us with how many people are dying every day…

“…please enlighten us and tell us how things have improved.”
