Nadia Sawalha has come to the defence of her Loose Women co-star Denise Welch following her This Morning appearance, and subsequent Twitter dispute with Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan.
Piers Morgan, 55, lashed out on Twitter and branded Loose Women presenter Denise Welch a COVID denier.
It came after the former Coronation Street actress voiced her concerns over the Government prioritising coronavirus on This Morning.
Nadia Sawalha has since shown her support for her colleague and friend Denise Welch after Piers Morgan slammed the latter as deluded and dangerous.
In view of her 170,000 Twitter supporters, the ex Eastenders star praised Denise Welch as a fine woman as she extended her support.
Nadia Sawalha wrote that she genuinely hoped that neither Piers Morgan nor anyone he loves has to endure the pain of struggling with their mental health and that she was sending the biggest of hugs to Denise Welch who was a fine woman.
Piers Morgan retweeted the post and claimed if a loved one suffered from mental illness he would not allow them to go on television to spew ill-informed rubbish about COVID.
Nadia Sawalha took the opportunity to reply and said it was frustrating that people’s opinions are dismissed when they suffer from mental health and she added: “Can you not be better than this?”
Piers Morgan didn’t hold back and alleged that he frequently gets abusive c**p aimed at him from Denise Welch and that if she didn’t want it back then she shouldn’t dish it out, and that if she does dish it out, she shouldn’t hide behind mental health when people do respond.
Piers Morgan and Denise Welch’s online dispute began after the Loose Women presenter appeared on This Morning via video link with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.
She was talking about the Government’s current position on coronavirus, where Denise Welch maintained it was a form of fear-mongering.
She said that as a mental health person, if people want to say that she’s on about that again, she didn’t mind because of the people it does help and that she would do anything to better balance the fear-mongering.
And she quickly hit back in view of her own 467,000 supporters, writing Piers Morgan should show her one tweet, one interview where she’s denied COVID and that he didn’t want to be telling complete and utter lies with such a huge following.
Piers Morgan has no idea of the impact these last six months have had on people suffering from mental health and his remarks are misguided, but honestly, it’s like a room full of children and Piers Morgan loves to irritate people and some people just fall straight into that trap and the best thing is to just ignore him because he’s a windup merchant.
Anyhow, there’s nothing wrong with being called a COVID denier, everyone has their own view of this virus and it’s untold damage by the way of the hysterical reaction to it but sometimes it’s refreshing to hear other people’s view, instead of the mantra we hear from the Government.
