The co-host of Susanna Reid was tested for COVID-19 on minor symptoms, but was confirmed negative.
Piers went to Twitter to confirm he would be back on Monday, and at the start of the show he immediately targeted Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s last advice, which he called “absolute shame” and “scandal total ”.
His tirades included a rant against Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen, who said the government’s advice was “very clear.”
Boris spoke to the nation on Sunday evening to define new locking rules as the government attempted to define an exit strategy two months later.
But all the message did was to further confuse the audience, and many did not know what they could and could not do.
Boris also replaced the slogan “stay at home” with “stay alert” without clearly defining what it meant.
Amid fears that the new comments will drive more people out of isolation amid the ongoing pandemic, Piers and Susanna have targeted Boris and the government.
They had on Conservative MP Bridgen, who said, “The address was very clear and I think you are insulting public information. It is clear that to deal with this virus, he presented the five tests. “
Piers asked him if he could see his sons if he kept his distance and he said yes, which angered the television host.
He said, “This is the problem Andrew Bridgen, you see what you just said is completely against the new rules as stated.
“This is a Conservative MP who thinks he knows exactly what Boris Johnson said and yet you just told me to do something that I am not allowed to do.
“That’s the problem, isn’t it? There are a lot of old flannels talking about controlling the virus and you, as a high-level conservative politician, you have no idea what these rules really mean and you are a member of parliament. ” You are one of them! ”
Declaring the death toll, he continued, “It is an absolute national disgrace when compared to any other control in the world.
“We didn’t have any tests – our deputy chief medical officer of health said we didn’t need tests, that it wasn’t appropriate, so we stopped doing it, which was a total scandal” .
He continued, “I hold Boris Johnson responsible for a mess, an absolute mess from start to finish. “
Also on Monday, he decried how the government had avoided letting top ministers go to GMB to answer questions.
Encouraging Johnson to come because he had questions to answer, Piers criticized the “cowardly” and “shameful” people who avoided the show.
With Susanna revealing more responses were revealed at a press conference, but not shared with the public, she recalled the confusion faced by everyone.
Piers then slammed the new slogan, which included “controlling the virus”, because it was “nonsense” – with which Dr. Hilary Jones agreed.
He said, “Control the virus when we don’t even have a vaccine. It’s completely absurd, it’s almost as if he’s campaigning against Brexit again. “
Piers asked Hilary, “We have no control over this until we have a vaccine, right? To which he subscribed.
The host opened the show to slam the confusing message as he revealed how he felt after his discomfort.
He said, “It’s good to be back, it’s good to be back thank you,” before sharing his “frustration” with Boris’ “unrest.”
Piers said, “Boris Johnson erases 15 minutes of prime-time television to speak to the nation and we expect to receive a lot of details, but we’ve had a load of his fluster… I don’t know where that leads. “
As Susanna explained that more details were shared at a later press conference, Piers called it “an absolute joke.”
Along with some viewers urging him to support Boris, Piers also criticized the “false hope,” adding that no one knew what they could and could not do after the latest advice.
