Piers Morgan: 'Lord Sugar's reckless, shameful stupidity will kill people'
Piers Morgan announces that he is "done" with old friend Lord Sugar for his stance on coronavirus.

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has announced that he is "done" with his friendship with Lord Sugar due to their disagreements over coronavirus.

Morgan has thrown fire at many high-profile figures over the last few weeks as the crisis has escalated, accusing them of not doing enough with their influence and wealth to help.

Yesterday Morgan vented his frustration at members of the public flouting government rules on staying at home in order to go out to sunbathe, prompting Sugar to tweet: "I can't for the life of me understand what @piersmorgan is on about in respect to sunbathing.If you are 10 ft away from the next person in the open what's wrong with that. In Essex we have big fields if you are in the middle of one chilling out in the sun whats wrong with that ?"

Morgan hit back today: "I'm done with @Lord_Sugar, trust me. His behaviour over this crisis has been an absolute disgrace, especially for a peer. But when he actively encourages British people to go out sunbathing, I can't just sit back & say nothing. His reckless, shameful stupidity will kill people.

"Billionaire hiding safely in his luxury Florida home demands the right for British people to all go out sunbathing, in direct contravention of Govt. instructions, as UK #coronavirus death toll rockets incl more & more NHS staff on the frontline. What an utter disgrace."

Almost 65,000 people worldwide have now died due to the disease.
