Loose Women's Denise Welch reignites Piers Morgan feud after Covid 'sceptic' claims
Loose Women star Denise Welch, 63, has hit back at Piers Morgan, 56, after she took to Twitter to comment on the controversy surrounding the purported Downing Street lockdown parties. Piers had claimed that the Government’s alleged gatherings that took place during lockdown would make “covid sceptics and anti-lockdowners feel vindicated”.In view of his 7.9 million followers, he typed: “The worst thing about all these illicit Downing Street parties is they will make covid sceptics and anti-lockdowners feel vindicated in their suspicions that the virus was never that dangerous or why would the people running the country all be ignoring the rules so brazenly?”Denise fired back at Piers while sharing a screengrab of his tweet with her 511,000 followers.She penned: “Anti lockdowners are not Covid sceptics Piers.“We are people who knew that such drastic action would cause horrendous collateral damage as it has.“We also knew that Covid, although desperately serious for some, was not to most people as reflected in the [governments] blatant lack of fear.”But Denise’s remarks divided Twitter users, who responded to her tweet with their own arguments.PaulSmith1961 tweeted: “Well said Denise - unfortunately for Piers, he’s always been on the wrong side here - he’s jumped on the righteous bandwagon and recently he’s been trying to get off that horse - good luck with that one.“I’m triple jabbed and that’s a personal choice and the way it should be!”lisaweider said: “My Dad died of Covid.

'So sad!' Steph McGovern bids farewell to Packed Lunch co-star as they share 'last day'
Steph's Packed Lunch star was visibly devastated to be losing 52-year-old Vivek to rival channel NewsUK, but wished him well on his journey nevertheless.Steph McGovern, who tweets using the handle @StephLunch, broke the news to her almost 420,000 followers as Vivek grinned for the camera while eating, as the show's name might suggest, a plate of lunch.From celebrity tantrums and storm-outs to tense and tearful topics being discussed live on air, 39-year-old Steph has weathered many a storm with her co-worker.However he announced in November that he would be leaving the team to pursue new projects when 2022 came around.Vivek's decision will give him a chance to reunite with acid-tongued Piers Morgan, with whom he had spent time in the past.He received a tweet from Piers after the news broke, simply stating: "Welcome aboard Vivek! Great to be working with you again."That might prove little consolation to Steph though, who admits that she will miss having him around.Vivek has also tweeted revealing his fondness for the show, boasting last month when he discovered that Steph's Packed Lunch had been shortlisted for Best Daytime Programme at the Broadcast Awards.He also jokingly listed his career highlight: producing a show featuring guest Stephanie Matto, who claimed she could earn £30,000 per week by selling her farts.Besides that bizarre story, in another, a tearful Katie Price opened up about her experiences with online trolls taking aim at her disabled son Harvey.Then, back in the summer, Vivek and Steph no doubt experienced a heart-in-mouth moment when comedian Joe Lycett appeared to spectacularly lose his sense of humour live on air.He seemed to take offence to one of Steph's playful jibes referencing a photo of him,

Good Morning Britain star Richard Arnold has recently marked 25 years on breakfast television.  The presenter began his TV career on The Sunday Show for the BBC.In 1997, he joined GMTV as a TV critic before going on to work on GMTV and LK Today.In 2012, Arnold became the Showbiz Editor for ITV Breakfast programme Daybreak, and when the programme was axed in 2014, Richard joined Good Morning Britain.The showbiz journalist has now looked back on his career during an interview with OK! in which he described his return to ITV after doing radio as “coming back to the family”.Asked whether he had ever thought of a “plan B” for his career, Richard said: “There was a change of guard when they launched Daybreak, and myself and Ben weren’t part of it.“I’d just turned 40 at the time and I ended up going to LBC Radio, which has always been a big love of mine, so it worked out.“But after a year or so, I started getting phone calls from ITV flirting with the idea of returning.“It felt like coming back to the family, as it had been such a big chunk of my career.”However, breakfast television is not always easy and can be subject to intense scrutiny.Last year, Richard discussed the backlash Good Morning Britain presenters are often met with in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk.The showbiz editor said: "(In 1997) the only thing that you had was a duty log where viewers would call in and, you know, their comments will be written down."Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard and I would be extremely grateful when they were handed to us."And you know you could see some comments were redacted to protect our fragile sensibilities."But now, of course, it's all out there and then the minute you say something on the show it's clickbait or there's
