Piers Morgan has become embroiled in a war with the Loose Women panellists after branding Denise Welch "dumb and deluded."

The 55 year old took to Twitter to hit out at 62 year old Denise after she opened up on her beliefs and thoughts about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Denise appeared on Friday's episode of This Morning where she told hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that the government need to stop "scaremongering" when it comes to the deadly virus.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers addressed his 7.6million followers when speaking about Denise's interview, making his opinion very clear.

He wrote: "Dumb, deluded & dangerous Covid-deniers like Denise Welch need to stop being given airtime.

"Her idiotic, ill-informed ramblings – from a woman who never stops telling us that she suffers from mental illness – will cost lives by persuading people to think the virus isn't a threat."

Denise responded by asking her own 467,000 followers on the social media platform: "Please ask Mr Morgan to show me one tweet, one interview where I have denied Covid?

"He doesn't want to be telling complete and utter lies with such a huge following. Seriously."

But her Loose Women co-star Nadia Sawalha went even further, directly tweeting the former Britain's Got Talent judge.

The ex-EastEnders star wrote: "I genuinely hope that neither @piersmorgan nor anyone he loves ever has to endure the pain of struggling with their mental health … sending you the biggest of hugs @RealDeniseWelch a damn fine woman is what you are."

With Piers hitting back: "If I had a loved one suffering from mental illness, I would stop them going on TV to spout ill-informed nonsense about Covid no longer being a serious threat."

To which Nadia responded: "What's frustrating is when people's opinions are dismissed or rubbished on the grounds of mental health issues alone — it's a slippery slope … have the argument @piersmorgan… just don't attack on such a personal level … Can you not be better than this?"

Piers brought an end to the row with one final swipe, writing: "Have you read or heard the torrent of abusive c**p Ms Welch aims my way?

"If you don't want it back, don't dish it out. And if you do dish it out, don't hide behind 'mental health' when people respond."
