Piers Morgan makes dig at fan over coronavirus fears as he poses for photo

Piers Morgan has made a dig at a fan over coronavirus fears after he posed for a selfie with them.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 54, took to his official Instagram account to share a photo of the moment with his 900,000 followers.

Seated at a table at Grosvenor House next to his GMB co-star Charlotte Hawkins, Piers posed for the selfie with the fan's face hidden by her sparkly phone case.

Looking displeased, Piers held back from smiling as the fan wrapped her arm around his head to get the photo.

But Piers didn't seem too uncomfortable as he took to writing the photo's caption.

Taking to the comments, his fans couldn't help but crack a joke and share mixed thoughts over the fan's closeness for a selfie.

One wrote: "Wow that is way too close for comfort. Leave the man to have some food with his beautiful co-stars."
