Dan Walker defends Piers Morgan – yes, really – in Alan Sugar coronavirus row

Dan Walker defended Piers Morgan in a Twitter row with Alan Sugar over the topic of people going outside during the coronavirus lockdown.

In other news, Hell has frozen over and pigs are also flying. We never thought we’d see the day!

It all started on (where else!) Twitter, when The Apprentice star wrote a message lambating Piers’ criticisms of people who are seemingly flouting the rules of self-isolation and going outside to sunbathe.

‘I can’t for the life of me understand what Piers Morgan is on about in respect to sunbathing,’ Lord Sugar wrote. ‘If you are 10 feet away from the next person in the open what’s wrong with that?’

The BBC Breakfast anchor replied, questioning the Amstrad billionaire comments.

‘With respect, it’s about respect,’ Dan told him. ‘Look up Nero…this is the modern equivalent.’

Just what we love to see on a Monday morning – some parallels between our society today and the Great Fire of Rome…
