PIERS Morgan showed his support for his west London patch by plumping for a brew in his “second office” cafe – yet was promptly branded a “hypocrite” for doing so.
The Good Morning Britain host started his Saturday at Cafe Phillies London, in Kensington, taking to Instagram to snap a shot of him enjoying coffee with the morning papers.
Clearly out to mix work with pleasure, his laptop was placed in front of him on the communal wooden bench.
In his caption, Piers, 55, who was supporting the venue in the coronavirus pandemic, wrote: “Finally back in my second office!
“It’s been a long four months … never has a coffee tasted better,” referring to the cafe’s closure during the coronavirus pandemic.
One was quick to criticise: “Spent the last four month spouting about how deadly Covid. Now back as if it didn’t happen.”
One angrily added: “So irresponsible,” – yet failed to respond when others called him out to add further detail to his words.
Yet the majority were chuffed to see the ITV anchor looking so cheery, with one writing: “Good on ya Piers and well deserved, you look content and happy.”
Another added: “Ooh you look so happy Piers.”
One then put: “Well done for supporting the businesses trying to open up again in these strange times, thank you.”
Earlier this week, the Life Stories host masked up for a date night with wife Celia Walden, to celebrate their anniversary.
Piers has been vocal in his criticism of the UK government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Yesterday, he slammed the PM’s decision to allow boozers to open up from 6am today, as lockdown restrictions ease.
