Piers Morgan Labels Jack Grealish An 'Idiot' After Alleged Partying During Lockdown
Piers Morgan lost it earlier this morning when he started ranting about people ignoring the UK's nationwide lockdown.
The Good Morning Britain presenter - who is celebrating his 55th birthday today - targeted part of the attack at Premier League footballer Jack Grealish who allegedly crashed his Range Rover following a party over the weekend.
The Aston villa star was pictured wearing a slipper on one foot and a flip flop on the other as he stood on the pavement.
This led to Piers blasting the 24-year-old, saying: "Another day, another load of idiots. England footballer Jack Grealish. Aston Villa star. Had a lot to say last week. Gave a video message. 'To help save lives you must stay at home'.
"Really good words. Until you go out to your mate's house on the lash for a party. Get into a car and crash into a load of other cars, allegedly.
"What were you thinking Jack? What happened to your little guidance? What happened to what you told us about saving lives and staying home?
"Doesn't help when an England star, a role model, does that. Acts with total impurity and selfishness and recklessness. Shame on you."

Piers then turned his attention to Labour MP Stephen Kinnock who drove from Wales to London in a bid to celebrate his dad's birthday - in the front garden.
Although the family stayed at a distance from each other, the Good Morning Britain host pointed out: "All you have to do is stay at home and obey the rules. There's a section of our community who doesn't care.
"Who can blame them when you have a politician, Stephen Kinnock, driving from his constituency in Wales to London to see his father. The local police say it's not essential travel.
"He says he's taking essential supplies. Really? Were you Stephen Kinnock? Or just going to wish your dad happy birthday. His dad's a great man.
"It's my birthday today. I'm not expecting my parents to rock up in the car. It would be dangerous for them. I'm sure someone closer than Wales can get essential travel to your parents."
Piers added: "Just stay near your home. This is all you have to do. This is our contribution to the war effort. People can't get it in their thick skulls."
