Denise Welch, 62, has spoken out about her spat with Piers Morgan, 55, after he branded her a “COVID-denier”. The Loose Women presenter and the Good Morning Britain host argued over Twitter after the former spoke about coronavirus “scaremongering” and how it impacts mental health on This Morning.
However, Denise has now insisted she’s “had enough” of her online debate with Piers.
She admitted: “I’ve just backed off now. I’ve had enough of it.
“I’ve said my piece and I tried to do what I could for the mental health of the people that follow me.
“Now I’m just keeping my head down and looking after myself and my family.”
