The Good Morning Britain presenter riled Carol after he tweeted: “To everyone on here deluding themselves that Covid is ‘over’, take a look at Spain’s case & death rate in the past week. Then wake the fu*k up. This pandemic has barely started.”
She then responded, tweeting: “Piers. The only deluded person around here is you. No one’s buying your hysterical bullshit anymore. You did a brilliant job of scaring the nation into paralysis but it’s over now.”
While Piers did not reply, shortly afterwards, Carol discovered he had blocked her.
Tweeting a screengrab showing that she was no longer able to view Piers’ tweets, she wrote: “Touched a nerve???”
On Saturday morning, Piers then tweeted: “Having to block a few T-list (and falling...) ‘celebs’ who’ve been driven bonkers by the pandemic & spew utter nonsense about the virus. They can now howl into the wind, and I will be spared their ignorant, deluded & foul-mouthed blatherings.
“It’s a win-win for all of us.”
Piers has just returned home after cutting short his holiday when France was put on the UK’s quarantine list for travellers.
He is set to return to Good Morning Britain alongside co-presenter Susanna Reid on 1 September.
