Heartbroken Lilian Cox Calls Boris Johnson A ‘W*****’ After Twin Tragically Dies Of Covid
Heartbroken Lilian Cox has hit out at the government's handling of the coronavirus after her sister tragically died.
Ninety-six-year-old Lilian and Doris Hobday - also known as the Tipton Twins - both contracted the virus and were taken into hospital for treatment.
But sadly, Doris died on 5 January, leaving behind her devastated family.
Now, sister Lil has slammed the government for how the pandemic has been handled, branding Prime Minister Boris Johnson a 'w*****'.
Speaking to the Sunday People, Lil, who had lived next door to Doris in an assisted living complex, said: "These things happen for a reason but it's not fair.
"We came into the world together. She was two hours older than me and we shared everything.
"She wasn't just my sister, she was my best friend."
She added: "The nurses and doctors were fantastic but Boris is a bloody w*****.
"I think lockdown should have happened a lot earlier - then there would not have been half as many deaths."
Following Doris' death, the family said in a statement: "We are so grateful for all the special memories we have created and got to share with you all."
The twins earned themselves an army of fans after appearing on TV in 2019 - they then took part in a very cheeky interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, in which Lil revealed she had a crush on actor Jason Statham.

When Piers asked: "I heard I have a love rival - you're rather hot on him?"
Lil responded: "One night with him and I'll die happy!"
Following their hilarious TV appearances, the twins racked up more than 40,000 followers on social media.
Morgan was one of the many people to pay tribute to Doris on Twitter:
Lil added: "She'll be remembered by thousands. I think we spread a lot of joy together."
As the pair were so concerned about contracting the virus, they decided to avoid their families at Christmas and instead spent it together.
Lil has since launched a memorial fundraiser for the Beacon Centre for the Blind - a charity that helped Doris' late husband Raymond.
