Matt Hancock joked he wanted to "celebrate" Piers Morgan's departure from Good Morning Britain. The disgraced MP who was ousted from his position as Health Secretary and broke his own lockdown rules during the height of the Covid pandemic recently had a series of WhatsApp messages leaked.
In another leaked message, Matt appeared to have discussed faking a "get well soon" message to Piers after he caught Covid before his exit from GMB.
In a screenshot shared by Politics UK, the messages were shared between ministers on May 3 2020. At the time, Piers tweeted: "UPDATE: On medical advice, and out of an abundance of caution for a mild symptom that arose in the past 48hrs, I've had a test for Covid-19 and so won't be working on GMB until I get the result back, which should be tomorrow. "On May 4, Matt replied: "Sorry to see @PiersMorgan has symptoms of coronavirus.
If you test positive, I sincerely hope it's mild. Get well soon. "READ MORE: Ken Bruce 'lingering' at BBC despite exit is 'surprising' - Simon MayoIn the leaked messages, the former health secretary and his ministers discussed a possible reply to Piers' tweet.Read more on msn.com
