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.
