Piers Morgan has been stopped in his tracks and, no, it’s not the woke community or social media trolls, but a bad case of hayfever.
Like much of the country, the former Good Morning Britain presenter suffers from allergies this time of year but it really got the best of him today.
Hoping to find others in the same boat, Piers tweeted on Wednesday: ‘Anyone else’s hay fever horrendous today?’
He then revealed the strong symptoms he’s battled and added: ‘Can barely move.’
Of course, some of Piers’ followers couldn’t resist the opportunity to rinse him a little with one replying: ‘Pretty sure hayfever doesn’t make you not be able to move.’
However, others were a little more sympathetic with one follower advising: ‘Piers, I have suffered with hayfever terribly all my life. My brother recommended the injection last year, which costs about 70 quid privately, and it’s a game changer! Highly recommend.’
Another revealed: ‘I smear vaseline inside my nostrils. Pollen sticks to the vaseline and doesn’t go ‘up’. Works for me. Massively reduces my hayfever symptoms.’
‘That was only positive about lockdown I didn’t have get hay-fever symptoms last year!’ another fan admitted.
Another famous face shared Piers’ misery today as Take That’s Howard Donald coincidentally tweeted to his followers: ‘My hay fever is a complete b***h today!! Anyone else’s?’
With his allergies, it’s no surprise Piers has shut down any speculation that he’d up for a stint in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here jungle.
Responding to Ant and Dec’s comments that he would do great on the reality series, Piers wrote in his latest Daily Mail column: ‘“Well, he’s not working at the moment, so he’ll be looking for a job,” scoffed Ant, as Dec cackled like a slathering hyena at the thought of luring me into their hellish jungle prison camp.
‘‘Let me make one thing crystal clear: there’s no way I’m ever exposing myself to a series of ghastly gastronomic humiliations for the delectation of the British public.
‘When I munch kangaroo testicles, I do so in the privacy of my home.’
