PIERS Morgan has revealed his parents are battling Covid and admits it's been a "scary time" for his family.

The presenter spoke of the "psychological trauma" of coming up against coronavirus as he explained how it had brought his elderly parents Glynne and Gabrielle down "like dominos".

Piers told Good Morning Britain today: "I would just like to say something to my parents who are both battling covid at the moment and have been for two weeks.

"It's a scary thing for a family when your elderly parents go through this. They got it from someone in their bubble.

"It was 'bang, like dominos'. They had one lunch together and within three days my mum and dad both had covid-19.

"It's been a long two weeks for our family.

"It's long for us because we can't get in there."

He added: "50 per cent of the battle for anyone who gets it – especially when you're slightly older – is the psychological trauma you go through.

"All you read about is the horror stories and it's a scary time for people.

"My parents have been very unnerved by it. Thankfully they're starting to come out the other end of it and they haven't had to be hospitalised and no oxygen issues, thank god for that.

"I wanted to talk about it because they felt strongly that if you get this it doesn't automatically mean you're going to go to hospital and you may die."

He added: "It's been a very sobering insight into what it's like for many families."

Ending the revelation on a jovial note, Piers asked Doctor Hilary Jones when his dad could expect to get his taste back.

"He can't taste his wine," said Piers, before joking: "I told him he can drink the cheap stuff and save a fortune."
