Piers Morgan called for Dominic Cummings to sacked in view of his 7.5 million Twitter followers today. The Good Morning Britain presenter said if Boris Johnson does not "fire" him, then he is off to visit his family.
If Boris doesn’t fire Cummings today, then I will deem the lockdown over & drive down to see my parents
The 55-year-old said he would deem "lockdown over" if the Prime Minister doesn't take drastic action towards his top adviser.
It comes after Cummings was spotted at his parents' home in Durham - more than 250 miles away from his home in London - days after he was said to have started self-isolating.
The 48-year-old was investigated by the police after breaching the Government’s own lockdown rules, according to reports.
An investigation by the Mirror and the Guardian said he was in the North of England, instead of isolating in the capital.

Piers tweeted: "If Boris doesn’t fire Cummings today, then I will deem the lockdown over & drive down to see my parents (from a 2m distance) for the first time in 12 weeks.
"I’m not having one rule for these clowns & another for the rest of us."
On reading the news last night, the father-of-four had initially posted: "So, Boris Johnson’s right hand man Dominic Cummings broke lockdown to go to his parents’ house 100s of miles away... AS HE SELF-ISOLATED WITH CORONAVIRUS SYMPTOMS.
"Fire him tonight Prime Minister @BorisJohnson- or why should anybody heed your lockdown rules?"
