GMB: Piers Morgan says he’ll ‘have coronavirus vaccine’ live on show

Will Piers Morgan put his money where his mouth is?

GMB: Piers Morgan has said he’ll have the coronavirus vaccine live on the show.

The Good Morning Britain host, 55, has been a vocal supporter of locking down and the vaccine.

Piers made the boast in the face of criticism of anti-vaxxers who believe the vaccine is dangerous and comes with risks.

What did GMB host Piers Morgan say about the coronavirus vaccine?

Piers took to his favourite social media platform, Twitter, to make the boast.

A follower asked him: “Can you please put yourself forward for the first vaccine jab!!”

How did Piers’ followers react?

As ever, there was a mixed reaction from followers.

“Well said pal,” one said. “Love watching you on GMB, legend.”

“I feel for the researcher who will have to source that big freezer and get it in the studio!” another joked.

Why on earth would anyone want to view that?

A third piped up and commented: “Why on earth would anyone want to view that?”

Finally, one queried Piers’ motives: “End of day every one of us will make up their minds whether they believe they’re better off without the vaccine or it’s better to have it.

“But I somehow doubt Piers having it live on TV is about the good of everyone, it’s more about views, him waiting for the ‘How brave’ messages.”
