Piers have confirmed that both his parents contracted the vastly spreading deadly virus COVID-19.
Good Morning Britain’s star spoke on the show and said that his stepdad and mum, Glynne Pughe-Morgan, and Gabrielle both have fought with COVID-19 over a “scary fortnight.”
Piers said: “I’d like to say something to my parents, they are both battling COVID and have been for two weeks and it’s a scary thing for a family…”
“When your elderly parents are fighting it, they are both in their mid to late 70s, and they got it two weeks ago from someone in their bubble and they had to go out and they were very sensible but got the virus and then bang it was like dominoes.”
The father of Piers, Eamonn Vincent O’Meara, had died when Piers was just 11 months old in a road accident tragically.
And when his mother married the second time, both the journalist and the TV star took his dad’s surname.
