Piers Morgan Forced To Apologise After Being Caught Breaking Covid Rules

Piers Morgan Forced To Apologise After Being Caught Breaking Covid Rules

Piers Morgan has apologised after breaking Covid rules this weekend.

The Good Morning Britain presenter was pictured in a taxi on Saturday night without a face mask, following a date night with wife Celia in London - which is currently in Tier 2.

Covid rules state masks must be worn inside taxis or private hire vehicles. Failure to do so could result in a fine. And while Celia could be seen wearing her mask, Piers appeared to be without.

The GMB presenter, 55, addressed the blunder on air this morning, explaining: "As I pulled away I realised what I had done - I had forgotten my mask. I do think masks matter and I got caught without one.

"I had two [masks] in my pockets but I was chatting to the paps!"

On Sunday morning, Piers also tweeted about the incident, apologising for his mistake.

"I put my mask on seconds after this pic was taken, as the cab moved off.. I should have done it before I got in but ironically, I was chatting to the paparazzi & I forgot," he tweeted.

"It was outside in the street. Ironically, the paparazzi were telling me they've been having a tough time financially during the pandemic. Looks I've been able to help them out today with my few seconds of forgetfulness. So, every cloud etc.

"I did breach Covid rules for a few seconds by forgetting to put my mask on before I got in the cab. Fortunately, I remembered as we pulled away & put it on. Masks help save lives, so it's very important we all remember to wear them when we should."

When a follower accused him of "making excuses" Piers responded: "I haven't made an excuse, I just explained what happened. I'm guilty as charged. For a few seconds, I was a Covidiot & I deserve the full wrath of Twitter hell to now descend on me."

Piers was backed by colleague Dr Hilary on today's show, who added: "You did not do it deliberately, you forgot!

"The critical thing is to be thinking you forgot it and then do it."
