Piers Morgan sets up self-isolation camera kit in case he is forced to present Good Morning Britain from home


PIERS Morgan has set up a TV home studio just in case the coronavirus pandemic forces him to broadcast from home.

Piers, 55, borrowed some equipment from the Good Morning Britain set so he could present the show from home should he need.

His daughter Elise, 11, stood in as her dad in front of the camera as Piers set up the studio.

Piers shared a photo of Elise on Instagram: “Elise Morgan reporting live from her father’s office, via the new self-isolation @gmb camera kit (should I need it..).” 

He had set up a huge TV set up behind a leather office which would serve as a backdrop much like on the current GMB set which shows a skyline of London.

The photo showed Elise on the camera’s screen which was set up above another TV, which Piers would use to see his guests and cohosts should he broadcast from home.

Piers is very passionate about ending coronavirus in the UK, even though he is still going to the studio every morning to present GMB.

He hosts the morning show alongside Susanna Reid who has just returned to the studio after staying home in self-isolation after she worried she may have been exposed to the virus.

On Wednesday, Piers confronted Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick over why the UK was not doing as much coronavirus testing as Germany.

The host lost his temper with Jenrick, who couldn’t explain why the UK wasn’t able to get 500,000 tests done like other countries have managed.

Ministers have promised to “ramp up” testing to 15,000 a day by the end of the week, and 25,000 a day by the middle of April.

But at the moment just under 10,000 tests are being done a day, as a furious row broke out over who is to blame.

As of this afternoon there are now 29,474 confirmed cases with 2,392 deaths in the UK.

Piers Morgan said it was a “complete disgrace” that countries such as Germany were able to do ten times as many tests as we are.

 

Susanna added: “When the World Health Organisation said, ‘test, test, test’, why didn’t we get up and running like Germany?

“What is the reason other than that we just weren’t prepared?”

Jenrick replied: “I don’t think that is a fair analysis… it isn’t easy to procure tests in a global pandemic.

“Germany is more able to get tests – different countries have different manufacturing strengths.”
