Piers Morgan has blasted Bev Turner over recent comments she’s made about Captain Sir Tom, who died earlier this week. 

Piers Morgan is not here for comments Bev Turner has made about Captain Sir Tom.

It all started when Turner, who is best known for presenting BBC’s Homes Live, triggered the TV presenter by tweeting: “Sir Tom Moore and his family did a brilliant job of raising £ for the NHS. It’s great that he lived to 100! It’s awesome that he got one last fab holiday.

“But I’m not clapping in the street to maintain the fear that imminent death is all around and we’re all in this together. We’re not.”

Outraged, by her comments, Morgan replied, writing: “This is so pathetic.”

Later on, the mum-of-three informed her followers that she had been blocked by the GMB host after touching ‘a nerve’.

She wrote: “Must have touched a nerve as been blocked by @piersmorgan I don’t think he liked the fact that it seems – by many of your reactions- that I wasn’t completely wrong… And he does not like to be wrong. Maybe he’s manipulating you all too? Just a thought…”

After it was confirmed that Captain Sir Tom had sadly passed away after contracting coronavirus at the age of 100, Morgan was amongst those who took to their doorsteps and applauded the war veteran.

He tweeted: “Lots of clapping in my part of West London. Great to hear. Thanks for everything, Captain Tom.”

Meanwhile, Boris Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds applauded outside 10 Downing Street.

The Prime Minister called the veteran a ‘hero in the truest sense of the word’.

On Sunday, the crusader was admitted to the hospital after he began to struggle with his breathing.

Last year, he raised almost £33 million for the NHS by walking laps of his garden at the start of the pandemic last year – this was a record for a charity walk.
