'Woefully entitled' Piers Morgan slams Prince Harry for giving Queen 'massive headache'
Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan has savagely branded Prince Harry a "shameless, deluded, woefully entitled hypocrite" in his latest column for The Sun.The journalist, who left his GMB presenting job in 2020 after being called out for criticisms he made against Meghan Markle, appears to be angered over Prince Harry’s request for police protection for his family when they visit the UK.Piers, 56, is an outspoken critic of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, whom he once accused of lying about having suicidal thoughts after the actress appeared in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.Now, Piers has claimed that the Queen’s grandson has “piped up from his Californian mansion” at the time where she needs it the least. Piers suggested that Harry was making everything "more difficult" for his grandmother "during the most difficult times of her life".Piers began by saying that he took issue with Prince Harry and Meghan’s television appearances at a time when Prince Philip was “dying in hospital”. He went on to explain that, in the light of Prince Andrew’s current sexual abuse allegations which the Duke of York has denied, Harry was once “rubbing salt” in the Queen’s “emotional wounds”. Harry’s threat of legal action after not being granted British police protection while in the UK, Piers argues, is causing his grandmother undue distress during another “difficult” time. Piers said: “The petulant prince is threatening legal action - is there ever a time when he isn’t? Unless the Home Office caves and restores the royal security he enjoyed before his dramatic flounce to America.“If he goes through with his threat, it will be the first time any royal has ever sued Her Majesty’s Government, and, of course,

Piers Morgan hints he has something in store for Boris Johnson ahead of Morning TV return
Piers Morgan, 56, will appear on BBC One’s Sunday Morning show with Sophie Raworth tomorrow at 9am.The former Good Morning Britain presenter has hinted that he has something in store for Boris Johnson, asking him to tune into the broadcast.Tweeting out to his 7.9 million followers, Piers quipped about coming out of his “enforced retirement”. He wrote: “UPDATE: It’s been a quiet news week, so I thought I’d come out of (enforced) breakfast show retirement and do the paper review on BBC1’s new Sunday Morning show with @sophieraworth.”“Tune in from 9am… especially you, Prime Minister @BorisJohnson,” he added somewhat cryptically. Piers’ followers had a mixed reaction to the post, with some eagerly anticipating his return, while others seemed unimpressed by the journalist. “Something big is coming isn't it please say yes,” Maggie1152 speculated.“Not expecting something big to come up in time for this are we?” asked TheMrAlex6.“Oh please bring up Johnson isolating (hiding from the public) when he doesn't need to,” Anne Milne pleaded. “Oh what a nice little Sunday morning treat, don’t hold back I’ve missed you honest opinions and saying how it is!” wrote Nikki Middleton.“Oh exciting, hope you give Boris a good grilling be it a review,” added Steve Gale.“Me too, so miss Piers on TV, love him or hate him..he always delivers a controversial debate,” mused Sara Nicholls. Meanwhile, others weren’t interested, including Minesawater who wrote: “Nah, you’re alright, mate. I’d rather watch a few episodes of Mrs Brown’s boys.”“I look forward to you flouncing off set again,” Paul C added in reference to the moment Piers left Good Morning Britain after being called out on his comments against Meghan Markle.

Loose Women's Denise Welch reignites Piers Morgan feud after Covid 'sceptic' claims
Loose Women star Denise Welch, 63, has hit back at Piers Morgan, 56, after she took to Twitter to comment on the controversy surrounding the purported Downing Street lockdown parties. Piers had claimed that the Government’s alleged gatherings that took place during lockdown would make “covid sceptics and anti-lockdowners feel vindicated”.In view of his 7.9 million followers, he typed: “The worst thing about all these illicit Downing Street parties is they will make covid sceptics and anti-lockdowners feel vindicated in their suspicions that the virus was never that dangerous or why would the people running the country all be ignoring the rules so brazenly?”Denise fired back at Piers while sharing a screengrab of his tweet with her 511,000 followers.She penned: “Anti lockdowners are not Covid sceptics Piers.“We are people who knew that such drastic action would cause horrendous collateral damage as it has.“We also knew that Covid, although desperately serious for some, was not to most people as reflected in the [governments] blatant lack of fear.”But Denise’s remarks divided Twitter users, who responded to her tweet with their own arguments.PaulSmith1961 tweeted: “Well said Denise - unfortunately for Piers, he’s always been on the wrong side here - he’s jumped on the righteous bandwagon and recently he’s been trying to get off that horse - good luck with that one.“I’m triple jabbed and that’s a personal choice and the way it should be!”lisaweider said: “My Dad died of Covid.

'So sad!' Steph McGovern bids farewell to Packed Lunch co-star as they share 'last day'
Steph's Packed Lunch star was visibly devastated to be losing 52-year-old Vivek to rival channel NewsUK, but wished him well on his journey nevertheless.Steph McGovern, who tweets using the handle @StephLunch, broke the news to her almost 420,000 followers as Vivek grinned for the camera while eating, as the show's name might suggest, a plate of lunch.From celebrity tantrums and storm-outs to tense and tearful topics being discussed live on air, 39-year-old Steph has weathered many a storm with her co-worker.However he announced in November that he would be leaving the team to pursue new projects when 2022 came around.Vivek's decision will give him a chance to reunite with acid-tongued Piers Morgan, with whom he had spent time in the past.He received a tweet from Piers after the news broke, simply stating: "Welcome aboard Vivek! Great to be working with you again."That might prove little consolation to Steph though, who admits that she will miss having him around.Vivek has also tweeted revealing his fondness for the show, boasting last month when he discovered that Steph's Packed Lunch had been shortlisted for Best Daytime Programme at the Broadcast Awards.He also jokingly listed his career highlight: producing a show featuring guest Stephanie Matto, who claimed she could earn £30,000 per week by selling her farts.Besides that bizarre story, in another, a tearful Katie Price opened up about her experiences with online trolls taking aim at her disabled son Harvey.Then, back in the summer, Vivek and Steph no doubt experienced a heart-in-mouth moment when comedian Joe Lycett appeared to spectacularly lose his sense of humour live on air.He seemed to take offence to one of Steph's playful jibes referencing a photo of him,

'Utter humiliation' Piers Morgan hits out at Prince Andrew amid loss of military honours
Piers Morgan, 56, issued a blistering review of Prince Andrew’s situation following the latest ruling in the civil case being brought against him by Virginia Giuffre.The Queen stripped the Duke of York today of all his military titles and royal patronages.The TV presenter took to his Twitter account, where he boasts a following of 7.9 million, to weigh in on the latest update.He shared a statement from Buckingham Palace that read: “With the Queen's approval and agreement, The Duke of York's military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to the Queen."The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen."The former Good Morning Britain host commented: “Utter humiliation for Andrew but he only has himself to blame - and far worse is to come if he continues to try to stonewall his way out of any accountability re the serious allegations against him & his relationship with Epstein/Maxwell.”Within just two hours of posting, Piers’ tweet had already racked up more than 1,000 likes and 80 retweets.One Twitter user pointed out that the ongoing situation could be affecting the Queen.Jodie88883853 tweeted: “How horrible in the later years of her life HMTQ has to deal with so much personal sadness.“We all hope when get to this point in our life there is some sense of peace!” (sic)Prince Andrew will no longer be able to use his HRH title, Buckingham Palace confirmed.It follows Judge Lewis A Caplan ruling that the civil case against Prince Andrew can proceed to trial.The Duke’s lawyers had previously attempted to get the case dismissed.The royal’s defence team cited a 2009 deal signed by Ms Giuffre and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, which saw Ms

Piers Morgan blasts 'appallingly heartless' reporter for 'mocking' anti-vaxxer deaths
Piers Morgan, 56, has made his opinion on anti-vaxxers very clear, especially over the past year or so during the coronavirus vaccine roll-out. But even he drew the line at mocking their Covid deaths.It comes after Pulitzer prize-winning columnist and author Michael Hiltzik, wrote a new piece for the Los Angeles Times about how to react when known anti-vaxxers who preached to others about not getting the jab then die from the illness.It was titled: "Mocking anti-vaxxers’ COVID deaths is ghoulish, yes — but may be necessary."After sharing it on Twitter, Hiltzik was inundated with an influx of messages with people asking if he was "insane or evil".Piers also waded into the debate, adding his own opinion on the "unpopular" piece.He replied: "Appallingly heartless take."Nobody’s Covid death should ever be mocked."They are all tragic victims, particularly so if they’ve been brainwashed into rejecting a vaccine that could have saved them."In Hiltzik's column, he referenced one individual in particular, Kelly Ernby.The former Orange County GOP Assembly candidate wasn't a prominent name on the national stage, but her death propelled her to be a much-discussed topic on social media.She was not vaccinated against Covid when she died last week, and as an outspoken critic of vaccine mandates, the internet exploded with comments blaming her for her own death.But it appears to have highlighted tensions between how we view mandates, with some believing they are Government overreach and others who see vaccines as vital to ending the pandemic.Many rushed to the comments section of Piers' post to share their views on the situation.Kenyanvoices penned: "Or they had taken several jabs that had no effect whatsoever.

'Outrageous hypocrisy!' Piers Morgan blasts Boris Johnson over party after family struggle
Piers Morgan has hit out at Prime Minister Boris Johnson after reports surfaced claiming that Downing Street staffers were sent an email inviting them to "make the most of the lovely weather" at a garden party at No. 10 during the first lockdown.The outspoken TV personality, 56, didn't hold back as he explained that on the day of the reported party, he held a socially-distanced reunion with his eldest son, whom he hadn't seen in two months due to strict Covid restrictions.In view of his 7.9 million followers, the former newspaper editor blasted the PM for his "hypocrisy".Piers wrote: "On the day (May20, 2020) that@BorisJohnson attended his No10 party where 100 people were invited to ‘bring a bottle’, I met my eldest son for first time in 2 months, & we stayed this far apart, without anyone else there, because that was BORIS JOHNSON’S BL***Y RULE.The star shared a snap of him and his son Spencer reunited outdoors.Donning a pair of sunglasses, Piers grinned happily as he pointed to his eldest son, whom he hadn't seen in 60 days, who was giving both thumbs up to the camera.In a later tweet, Piers once again slammed the PM for not following the rules he had set for the nation.The former Life Stories host wrote: "We all have similar stories, some obviously deeply distressing involving sick and dying loved ones."Britain’s Prime Minister separated families for months on end, often in their darkest hours, but secretly ignored all those rules himself to party."Just outrageous hypocrisy," he ended his tweet.According to a leaked email, Downing Street staff were invited to a garden party at No.

Piers Morgan, 56, penned a furious letter to Boris Johnson, highlighting his "ineptitude" as Prime Minister, raging at him for his dealings with the coronavirus pandemic, and pointing out various other Government failings over his two-years in the hot seat.The former Good Morning Britain star also demanded he be the first to appear on his new TV show, which is due to premiere very soon.In his latest column for The Sun, Piers titled the piece: "Dear Boris, stop being a shambles and fix things or admit being PM is too much for you and quit, yours Piers Morgan."The uncensored letter referenced the 201-day Government boycott of GMB, where the former editor of The Spectator magazine (1999-2005) refused to answer Piers' repeated calls to appear on the show.Boris has been accused of "ducking interviews" after not featuring on the programme for almost four years.He penned: "It was pathetic to watch a fellow ­journalist run and hide in a fridge to avoid answering my questions on Good Morning Britain, and boycott shows like GMB for months on end for fear of a tough interrogation."Grow a pair, man! (And you can start by being one of my first guests on my new global TV show...)"He added: "You wrote an excellent book about your hero Sir Winston Churchill which lauded his courage under fire.

'Oh the tangled web’ Piers Morgan slams Djokovic as photo emerges a day after Covid test
Piers Morgan, 56, reacted to a photograph of Novak Djokovic surrounded by young tennis players which was shared the day after his lawyers claim he tested positive for Covid.The photograph was taken at an awards ceremony in Belgrade, Serbia, and Djokovic can be seen standing with young people who are holding tennis trophies.It is unclear when the event took place, but the photographs were shared by the Tennis Association of Serbia on December 17, as reported by Sky News.Djokovic’s lawyers say he had tested positive for Covid a day earlier.They are reportedly planning to use the test in question to validate Djokovic’s medical exemption which would enable him to enter Australia without being vaccinated.Upon hearing the news, Piers Morgan took to Twitter to jibe at the tennis champion.The journalist wrote: “‘Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive…”The quote comes from author Sir Walter Scott’s nineteenth century poem Marmion.Piers has previously praised Australia for denying Djokovic’s entry into the country.He told his 7.9 million followers: “The #Djokovic saga is not about whether you believe in Covid vaccines, but whether you believe famous sports stars should play by the same rules as everyone else.“He has the right not to be jabbed, and Australia has the right to chuck him out for making a dodgy visa application."The 20-time Grand Slam winner is still being held in a Melbourne detention centre after his visa was cancelled upon arrival into the country.He was told he didn't meet the country's entry requirements due to his vaccine status.Djokovic has not revealed whether he has been vaccinated or not, although he has been critical of mandated vaccines in the past.Court documents released on

Piers Morgan has taken to Twitter to share his memories of meeting Sir Sidney Poitier and his wife Joanna Shimkus, 78, following the tragic news of the Oscar-winning actor’s death at the age of 94 today.The former Good Morning Britain presenter recalled chatting to the couple at Jackie Collins’ LA home a few years ago as he paid tribute to Sidney and his “great Hollywood marriage”.The star shared an extract from one of his Daily Mail Event columns from 2014, which detailed their meeting, in view of his 7.9 million followers this evening.He penned alongside it: “Had the pleasure of meeting Sidney Poitier and his delightful wife Joanna at a dinner party at Jackie Collins’ LA home a few years ago, and they told me this lovely story which I wrote about in my Mail diary. “They had one of the great Hollywood marriages.”In his column, Piers revealed that upon meeting Canadian actress Joanna, he took the opportunity to ask her “What’s the best and worst thing about living with an icon?”Joanna went on to give Piers a witty answer that detailed the “terrible mistake” she had made, which impacted the course of their relationship.She cheekily replied: “Well, the best is that Sidney’s just as nice, decent and charming as you would think, which is why I’ve been with him for 48 years. “The worst is that I made a terrible mistake when we first started dating and cooked him a really good meal. “Since then, I’ve had to cook him a really good meal every damn night for 48 years!” Piers went on to admit he then walked straight over to Sir Sidney to spill on his other half’s biggest regret.He continued: “I told him Joanna’s big regret and he burst out laughing. “‘That’s true – after that first meal, I realised she was a wonderful cook, so I

‘Nobody’s ever slid faster into my DMs’ Piers Morgan says Meghan Markle had ‘crush’ on him
Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan has claimed that Meghan Markle had a "crush" on him when they first met seven years ago.The former Life Stories host, 56, recalled the moment the Duchess of Sussex "slid into his direct messages" within minutes of the journalist following her on social media in 2015.Writing in The Sun ahead of his new column, Piers Morgan Uncensored, the former newspaper editor announced his media comeback after leaving GMB last April.Piers left the show following a disagreement with weatherman Alex Beresford over the Duchess over Meghan's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.But now, Piers has told how the Duchess is in for an "unpleasant surprise" in the wake of his comeback.He wrote: "Pushy little Princess Pinocchio tried her utmost to cancel me, and she will be in for a very unpleasant surprise when I emerge, like Lazarus, from my den."In a tongue and cheek interview with himself, the TV personality claimed Meghan took a fancy to him.Piers asked himself: "Your blossoming friendship with Meghan Markle was abruptly terminated when she met her now husband, Prince Harry."Do you, deep down, think she once had a slight crush on you too?"He responded: "No question."Nobody’s ever slid faster into my DMs after I’ve followed them on social media – she made Usain Bolt look like a tortoise."Six months after Meghan and Harry's wedding in 2018, the star wrote a column for the Daily Mail claiming he was "ghosted" by the Duchess.Piers has previously told how he followed the Suits actress on Twitter in 2015, while following three of her co-stars at the same time.He claimed that Meghan responded to him following her "within minutes", by sending him a direct message.He wrote: "Within minutes, she sent me a

Piers Morgan issues warning as he receives more threats after social media troll's arrest
Piers Morgan, the journalist has made it clear he is fighting back.The controversial TV star told his almost eight million followers that the harassment he'd received was crossing the line - and that he wouldn't tolerate it again.As reports emerged that an arrest had been made after a social media user's "chilling" death threats had targeted Piers and his son, the presenter took to Twitter to thank supporters for their kind words."Thanks to everyone who’s sent nice messages about this," the 56-year-old wrote."It’s appreciated and a reminder that most people aren’t vile trolls."As for those who’ve inevitably sent more threats/abuse, just be mindful: if you cross a line, or involve my family, I will come for you."Piers has been making waves with his controversial opinions for years.He recently left ITV altogether to avoid apologising after accusing Meghan Markle for lying about her life in the royal family.He also dismayed a mental health charity, which condemned him for appearing to dismiss Meghan's claims, from her interview with Oprah Winfrey, that she had suffered suicidal thoughts.Ofcom received almost 60,000 complaints - the highest total in its history - but Piers was ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing, as the regulator decided his comments constituted reasonable "freedom of expression".He has since claimed that although he takes suicide and mental health issues seriously, he believes that some people exaggerate their problems and should "toughen up".He also recently blasted actor Alec Baldwin for his perceived insensitivity to the late Rust crew member Halyna Hutchings, who was accidentally shot by the star on-set with a prop gun.After seeing a Christmas video message Alec had created for Instagram, Piers claimed

Piers Morgan, 56, has revisited the time Raquel Welch, 81, had the “best excuse for standing him up”. The former Good Morning Britain star did not hold back on the details after she invited him to her hotel room, ahead of her appearance on Life Stories.Piers used his latest column for the Daily Mail to present his “All-Time Morgan Awards”.Under the category of “best excuse for standing me up” he revealed the argument Raquel used to cancel their meeting.He penned: “Raquel Welch invited me to meet her in her hotel suite the day before our Life Stories interview, then cancelled at the last minute.“‘Sorry Piers,’ she explained when we finally met at the studio the next day, ‘I just remembered that I never take tea in the morning with any man I haven’t slept with.’”The broadcaster has been outspoken throughout his life in the public eye - both on personal and public issues.He recently caused controversy after calling for shorter isolation time for NHS staff suffering with Omicron.Concerns had been raised that the NHS could become overwhelmed should any more staff fall ill with coronavirus.NHS employees require a minimum of seven days to isolate if infected.The previous requirement was 10 days, before being reduced last month.In view of his 7.9 million Twitter followers, Piers penned: "Seven days of self-isolation by Omicron-infected NHS staff now seems to be doing more damage to NHS functionality than the now indisputably milder variant itself."It's only five days here in the US and should be five days in the UK."But Piers comments caused a major debate among other Twitter users.Some agreed that there should be a shorter isolation period for NHS staff, while others thought slashing the isolation period could be "too

The Apprentice star Lord Alan Sugar has revealed that he suffered a broken septum after following the "harrowing" coronavirus protocols that were needed to film the latest series of the popular BBC show.The 16th series is set to air on January 6 as contestants battle it out to receive a £250,000 investment from the business magnate, 74.But in a new interview, the Hackney native has told how he was left with a broken septum after adhering to Covid protocols that included rigorous testing.The TV personality detailed the requirements that were necessary for the show's 16th season to go ahead.Lord Sugar also revealed the jaw-dropping number of Covid tests he's done in preparation for filming the show.He said: "The Covid protocol was harrowing, to make it simple."I think my last count I’ve done 79 Covid tests," he admitted.The business mogul told The Mirror and other publications: "I haven’t got Covid but I’ve got a broken septum in my nose here."His co-star, business executive Karren Brady, also had her say on working within strict Covid rules, explaining that they were necessary to keep everyone safe.She said: "I think it was a mammoth task in itself, keeping everybody safe, that was the priority of the production team and everybody who was involved."She went on to reveal that social distancing, mask-wearing and constant testing were all measures taken even when the cameras weren't filming.Lord Sugar's comments come after he hit out at former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, following his remarks about this year's honours list.Piers told his 7.9 million Twitter followers how "disappointed" he was that he wasn't included on the list and "will have to wait" for his turn.He wrote: "Very disappointed not to have
