Piers Morgan reveals his daily Covid temperature test has returned worrying results for past two days

PIERS Morgan has revealed his Covid temperature test has returned worrying results for the past two days.

Piers, 55, said the Good Morning Britain team are forced to take the temperature tests every day before going on air.

A high temperature could be a symptom of the coronavirus and a sign an infected person could develop a fever.

Piers gave viewers a glimpse into the measures ITV have put in place to ensure presenters can continue to work during the coronavirus pandemic.

He revealed his dodgy results moments after he took his seat behind the GMB desk with co-host Susanna Reid – with the pair sitting at a social distance.

Piers coughed and said: "We have these temperature tests you look at these machines, it's all digitally done. For the last two days it said 'admission not admitted' or something, and '37 points' and I looked at it and said 'what is this? I shouldn't have a temperature?'

"Anyway, we've identified the problem.

"We've identified the problem – I had something turned off and my temperature went back to normal. There's a big heater because it's getting chilly, the security guys have a big heater over the door.

"It's putting heat right onto me as I stand there and making it look like I've got a temperature."

It comes after the presenter was forced to take a week off work after he experienced symptoms back in May.

He had been tested for Covid-19 and said he would not return to our screens until he got his results back.

Piers tweeted at the time: "UPDATE: On medical advice, and out of an abundance of caution for a mild symptom that arose in 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."

Piers, a long-time critic of the government's coronavirus strategy, was the subject of almost 4,000 complaints to TV watchdog Ofcom during the height of the pandemic as he grilled MPs over their Covid policy.

The broadcasting regulator was bombarded with complaints about Piers's tough interviews, which some viewers said amounted to "bullying".

Piers has now admitted he has been a "bit of a bully" during Good Morning Britain interviews.

He also said he regreted mimicking a guest's voice.

He told The Guardian: "To be honest, I regret that. That actually does stray into being a bit of a bully.

"You lose the argument when you do that. You're right."

Piers' combative interview style has lead to a government boycott of the show since March.
