Good Morning Britain host Piers posted a selfie of himself on a plane saying he was jetting away from 'surreal' Britain
‘GET me outta here!’ Piers Morgan – ‘washed up and knackered’ makes a pathetic excuse for a celebrity as he jets out of Britain for the summer.
Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan and co-host Susanna Reid said goodbye to viewers as they signed off for the summer break following a ‘very long year.’ It was confirmed this week that Piers and co-host Susanna Reid would be taking some time off the show for summer, with Piers even hinted that he could leave GMB next year.
Piers, 55, branded himself a ‘washed up, knackered pathetic excuse for a celebrity’ as he jetted out of Britain, on Sunday, playing on ITV show I’m A Celebrity’s famous tag line as he wrote: ‘Get me outta here!’ he poked fun at himself as he took to social media to share a photograph of himself wearing a face mask whilst sitting aboard a plane at Heathrow airport.
“This is our last programme until September. We’re going to lie in the sunshine.” said Piers.
Today, Piers shared a selfie of him on a plane, wearing a mask, ready to jet off to sunnier climes, which he captioned: “I’m a washed-up, knackered, pathetic excuse for a celebrity – get me outta here. Bye Britain, it’s been surreal.”
His millions of Twitter followers were quick to react to his photo, with many branding him a ‘hypocrite’ after he has previously hit out at people for flouting social distancing.
One follower responded: “What a hypocrite lecturing everyone else of social distance and crowds and the virus numbers then getting on a plane,” and another tweeting: “Now can you imagine if someone in the GOV took this picture going on a plane… you’d be having a tantrum Piers.”
Others, however, defended him, with one reacting: “Wake up. It is permitted now social distancing and wearing a mask.”
As yet, Piers has not revealed his secret holiday in the sun destination…
