Dr Hilary’s warning to viewers

Dr Hilary issued a warning as he told viewers to make sure they go to see a GP if they notice any changes in themselves – and to not let their coronavirus fears stop them from seeing a doctor.

The TV doctor said: “I think people [feel] worried about going into any clinical setting at the moment for fear of catching COVID-19…

Even more important to call your GP straight away and get that appointment.

“It’s really important that people still go to their health screenings… that’s especially if you’ve got any symptoms.

“If you notice anything that’s new for you, anything different, even more important to call your GP straight away and get that appointment.”

Elsewhere on the programme, Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid discussed the US presidential debate that took place last night.

The pair slammed President Donald Trump’s adversary for laughing during key moments of the discussion. Biden smiled when they were talking about the economy and the pandemic.

Piers also issued a fresh broadside against the Duchess of Sussex after she appeared to claim in a new interview that nothing she has said is controversial – causing his co-host Susanna to urge him to give his criticism of Meghan Markle a rest.
