Inside Denise Welch’s bitter feud with Piers Morgan which got her ‘blocked’

juin 30, 2020 0 Par admin

Piers Morgan doesn’t shy away from confrontation, so its no surprise he’s got a long list of ongoing feuds.

But the controversial Good Morning Britain host has even managed to upset someone quite close to home, after he and fellow ITV stalwart Denise Welch clashed over a number of his strong views.

Denise says that Piers has even blocked her on Twitter following a series of arguments on topics from mental health to coronavirus.

Chatting to Closer, the Loose Women panellist told that they locked horns last year after Piers accused her of being a “professional victim.”

Denise has been forthright in her mental health advocacy, having battled severe depression and alcoholism for a number of years.

But the tables turned recently, as Denise took aim at Piers over his coverage of coronavirus.

GMB has seen Piers go on lengthy rants and conduct brutal interviews with government ministers over their handling of the crisis.

He even had to be cleared by Ofcom following a swarm of complaints about his savage interviews of Care Minister Helen Whately and Health Secretary Matt Hancock.

But Denise is having none of it, scolding: “His ranting and shouting aggressively about the virus without ever sharing any positive news has scared a lot of people.

“He should care more about people’s mental health.”

Denise said Piers had blocked her after they fell out years back, adding: “He accused me of ‘wearing my depression like a designer handbag’, so I have no time for his virtue signalling.”

Piers declined to comment on Denise’s words.

In a now-deleted tweet, Denise brutally told Piers to “self-isolate for two years.”

As Piers’ coverage ramped up in March, Denise wrote: “Why doesn’t health expert & harbinger of doom Piers Morgan catch the last flight to LA & self isolate in his mansion for 2 yrs.”

Piers’ friendship with Lord Alan Sugar drew to a dramatic conclusion amid coronavirus, as the business mogul begged him to “lighten up” and branded his coverage “irresponsible.”

Piers later told The Sunday Times that the spat has “ruined our friendship.”

“I think we’re done as friends,” he admitted, “I can’t see through the behaviour.”
