“Can you explain how you were able to have such a big crowd of football fans inside a theatre last night, @mrdanwalker? Genuinely curious.”

Fans were quick to agree with Piers.

One commented: “Are you aware of this @BorisJohnson? What sort of a message is this giving to people who can’t even see their families. I’m shocked and disgusted!”

A second said: “How the hell did this get allowed??? This is an absolute joke and makes a mockery of everyone else who is following the rules and not to mention all NHS staff who are risking their lives daily!”

Another complained: “And yet you still can’t go to a football match in an OPEN AIR STADIUM.”

According to government rules, socially distanced indoor theatre performances are still allowed to take place.

Back in June, Piers slammed Dan’s “softest touch political interviewing”.

He tweeted his rival: “The reason they all go on your show Dan is because you’re known as the softest touch in world political interviewing…

“Or as the Guardian called you recently ‘LaLa from the Telletubbies… most at home asking unthreatening lifestyle questions.'”
