Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 56, didn’t receive much sympathy from his son Spencer Morgan, 28, after he complained about struggling with long Covid. It comes after Piers took to Twitter to reveal he still hasn’t regained his sense of smell and taste following his battle with the deadly virus earlier this year.

Piers and Spencer exchanged banter on the social media platform after the latter shared his disapproval of restaurants putting fruit in Diet Coke.

He wrote in view of his 64,000 followers this evening: “Restaurants need to stop putting lemon / lime in diet coke.”

However, Spencer’s dad was quick to disagree with his point, replying: “Says a man who doesn’t have long covid…”

Unfortunately for Piers, Spencer was quick to tell him to “get over it” after months of dealing with the aftermath of the virus.

He mockingly responded: “Still crying about his cold. Get over it.”

Despite his son’s protestations, Piers took to social media once again to ask his eight million followers for advice on how to get rid of long Covid symptoms.

The star wrote: “Has anyone had long covid symptoms of fatigue & loss of taste/smell for 10 weeks or more and then fully recovered – if so, what did you do that helped get over it? 

“It’s getting very irritating..”

 

Fans took to the comments section of Piers’ post to share their thoughts on the frustrating situation.

Julieorr1968 wrote: “My daughter and son in law haven’t regained smell or taste after several months unfortunately.”

yoavsusz added: “Loss of taste and smell lasted for a few months for me and then came back gradually. It seemed to get much better after getting the second dose of the Vax. But it may have just been time.”

IanAshness commented: “Had no joy with anything then tried a Chocolate Orange it’s probably a coincidence but the smell and taste triggered something.  It was literally the first thing I could taste or smell. The improvement continued and I would say back to normal maybe a month later.”

Piers then hit back at a Twitter user who was less than sympathetic.

AWebber1991 penned: “I stopped being a p***k and was fine, try that.”

“Don’t think you stopped though mate, did you…” the outspoken journalist replied.

Piers has four children including Spencer, Stanley and Albert, with his first wife Marion Shalloe.

He also has daughter Elise, who he welcomed with wife Celia Walden in 2011.

Piers has been suffering from long Covid since watching England in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium.

The presenter has been double-jabbed, and has credited the vaccine for preventing his Covid battle from becoming more serious, but since supporting the national team on July 11, he has suffered coughing fits, a high fever and chills.

Writing in his Event column for the Mail on Sunday, Piers shared that on July 16 he suffered: “a horrible night of high fever, cold sweats, ferocious coughing and sneezing and strange aches all over my body, none of which has been helped by the very hot weather that’s turned my bedroom into a Saharan furnace”.

One week later, Piers said that he had been “hit by a sudden, brutal blast of debilitating fatigue that left me flat-lined in bed all day and feeling as if I’d been run over”.

10 days after the final, he wrote: “Been a week now and although the fever’s long gone, the fatigue keeps overwhelming me like a soporific tidal wave. 

“I haven’t even read a newspaper since developing symptoms, which for a news junkie like me is unprecedented.”
