The Debbie Dingle star messaged controversial Piers about whether window cleaners counted as key workers or not amid the coronavirus lockdown, therefore painting him as an expert.

She posted: "I know window cleaners and gardeners work outside but surely they're not essential workers.

"Shouldn't they be staying at home? They've been at two of our neighbours today, I'm confused about this 'lockdown'.

"Shouldn't we all just be at home unless we absolutely can't? @piersmorgan."

After seeing the question, Louise quoted Charley's tweet and pointedly asked her: "Why are you asking him?"

Charley then hit back at Louise insisting it "wasn't a question".

She writes: "Have you not been reading his feed? It wasn't really a question, it was a discussion. This has been the only thing on GMB and I've been following it. Why?"

Louise didn't respond to Charley's last comment but fans flocked to weighh in on the awkwardness.

One said: "Charley Webb well done to you asking this question. Piers Morgan does a fab reporting job ignore negativity. Keep safe 'everyone'"

Another said: "@piersmorgan has been addressing this issue on @GMB every morning and the only clarification that we can get is on programmes like this so think Charley has the right to question/ask."

Charley went on to clarify that she was questioning the Government's lockdown instructions as she doesn't think they are clear enough - therefore demanding answers.

She said: "The point of my tweet was to say, it's not clear who and who can't travel to work. I understand it says, 'if you can't work from home'.

"If everyone who couldn't work from home continued to travel to work we'd never get rid of this virus. This would all just carry on."

It comes as the UK death toll of coronavirus hit new highs this week with 181 people dying in one day.

Most recent updates show 759 Brits have died of the deadly disease so far and now Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been diagnosed with it.
