Richard Madeley criticized the government for his “deeply conflicting” quarantine letter to people over 70, saying it could “tear apart couples.”

The 63-year-old TV presenter said people in the older group were “unfairly targeted” while other vulnerable groups were overlooked.

He intervenes when he reveals that his 34-year-old wife, Judy Finnegan, 71, had received a letter from Health Secretary Matt Hancock asking the over 70s to stay indoors for 12 weeks.

“Because I’m 63, that would mean that Judy and I couldn’t go out together. It’s ridiculous, “he told the Sun.

“But wait, what about everyone else with underlying health issues? Someone 30 years old with kidney problems or asthma?

“I think it’s deeply unfair. You cannot target only a group at risk. If you do that, you need to target all of the at-risk groups, which would represent almost half of the population. “

Richard added that the 70 years old today is nothing like the same age group in the 80s, who had shorter life expectancies and were less healthy.

The former host of This Morning wondered how the government could seek to enforce the rule if the lock was lifted for younger age groups, and if everyone would need to carry their “passport or certificate of birth”.

Although they may be one of the most enduring celebrity TV marriages, Richard said he still feared the rule would “tear couples apart.”

The couple live near Hampstead Heath in north London, where Richard walks every day to stay healthy.

While Judy is also keeping fit, in January 2019, she had a serious health crisis due to stomach ulcers and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance.

Richard’s criticism of the government comes after the coronavirus crisis saw him stuck in the United States alongside Judy after President Trump introduced a flight ban.

“They are as stoic and optimistic as they can be and they determine things one day at a time, just like the rest of the country,” said their son Jack.

Fortunately, the travel ban only added a few more days to their vacation, and the couple were able to return to the UK last month.

Earlier this year, Richard made a triumphant return to This Morning alongside Judy.

The duo, who directed the ITV daytime show between 1988 and 2001, replaced Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

Fans have said how thrilled they are to see the couple return to the series, as some have said it was “surreal” and “stepped back in time”.

The couple are now hosting a series “The Book Club Meets the Chat Show” which begins tomorrow on Channel 4, with guests such as Graham Norton, David Walliams, Judge Rinder and Sandi Toksvig.
