Piers asked the brother of Jeremy Corbyn: “Do you believe the coronavirus pandemic is real?”

Mr Corbyn replied: “We’re challenging the government to give actual evidence that there is a virus.”

Susanna Reid cut in: “The Prime Minister himself was hospitalised with the virus. How much more evidence do you need?”

Mr Corbyn questioned: “Well, was he hospitalised with the virus or was he ill with something else?”

Mr Corbyn went on to insist there’s “no need for a vaccine” because they “make money for mega corporations and the pharmaceutical industries”.

Dr Hilary then weighed in, saying: “You are dangerous, you shouldn’t be preaching, you’re not medically qualified.

“I don’t know where you get your rubbish fake news from and you shouldn’t be on air!”

GMB later cut to Lorraine to find out what was coming up on her programme.
