Piers Morgan’s son Spencer has revealed he managed to ‘escape’ being stuck in tier 4 restrictions by heading to his family’s Sussex home.
On Sunday new restrictions came into force in London and the South East in a bid to control the spread of a new strain of coronavirus.
Those in tier 4 saw Christmas bubbles cancelled, as they are now prohibited from mixing households over the Christmas period and must stay home.
People in tiers 1, 2 and 3 are now only allowed to mix with one other household on Christmas Day, with the original plan for bubbles of up to three households being allowed to mix between December 24 and 28 being scrapped.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement outlining the new rules on Saturday, many in tier four areas headed elsewhere before the new restrictions were implemented a day later.
Spencer, 27, revealed that he managed to avoid being in tier 4 ‘just in time’ as he told his followers on Twitter that he had relocated to Sussex for Christmas.
Piers’ eldest son tweeted: ‘Escaping to our house in Sussex just in time #adaptandovercome #tier2.’
Spencer has been vocal speaking out against lockdown restrictions in place on Twitter and told followers that his mental health has ‘taken a beating’ this year during the coronavirus pandemic.
He wrote: ‘Count myself as v mentally strong and even my mental health has taken a beating this year. Millions will be in a far worse place. Disgusting what this dictatorship is doing.’
Following up his tweet with a picture of his garden at home in Sussex, Spencer said: ‘On the plus side. Tier 2 ain’t too bad.’
He is one of Piers’ three sons from the star’s previous marriage to ex-wife Marion Shalloe – Good Morning Britain presenter Piers is also dad to Stanley, 23, and Albert, 20.
Piers shares daughter Elise, nine, with wife Celia Walden.
It’s not known whether Piers is currently in Sussex with Spencer.
Tweeting following the new restrictions on Saturday, the TV star told fans he is ‘done with 2020’.
Piers teased: ‘A new mutant covid is on the rampage, Arsenal keep losing, the dreadful reality of Brexit is looming, Trump’s still chucking his toys out of the pram, Christmas is canned, and everyone on Twitter’s gone absolutely bonkers – including me. I’m done with 2020, see you in 2021.’
He was recently forced to apologise for forgetting to wear a face mask, after he was spotted without wearing a protective covering while in a taxi.
Speaking on GMB, Piers addressed his mistake, as he said: ‘Came out of a very nice dinner in Mayfair with my wife… if only she’d reminded me to put mine on.
‘I had a friendly chat with the paparazzi, [they said] “it’s been a rough year we’re not making money, there are no parties, there’s no launches, very few celebrities about”. ‘I went, “Sorry guys, it’s only me”. We all laughed…
‘And then of course I bounded into the taxi having been distracted with my conversation with the paparazzi and they immediately descended like a pack. Lit up the cab with flash bulbs and it was only as I pulled away, that I realised I forgot to put my mask on and therefore designated myself as a Covidiot.’
Holding his hands up, Piers added: ‘No excuses, it’s a fair cop gov… I put it on a few seconds later, I was nailed, it was too late and I can only apologise.’
