Piers Morgan's son showing mild symptoms of coronavirus

Piers Morgan has revealed that his youngest son Albert, 19, has shown 'mild symptoms' of coronavirus.

Piers who shares Albert, Spencer, 26, and Stanley, 22, with his ex-wife Marion Shalloe and also has an eight-year-old daughter, Elise, with wife Celia Walden - revealed the news on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday while discussing the respiratory illness.

He said: 'One of my sons had it in a much milder way. My youngest boy.

'I think most people are associating [lack of taste and smell] that with the virus, it's a very unnerving thing to get...

'Yes, he had mild symptoms which have cleared up now.'

Piers explained that he had not seen Albert for three weeks before he showed any of the mild symptoms, so did not need to self-isolate himself.

The 55-year-old broadcaster has been vocal about the UK government ordering people to stay inside to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
