Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, 55, recently said Government ministers have continuously refused to appear on the show, seemingly because of his harsh interviewing ways. Today, Health Secretary Matt Hancock, 41, was interviewed by Naga Munchetty, 45, on BBC Breakfast.
Ahead of his appearance on the show, Naga took to Twitter to ask her fans which questions they would like her to put forward to Matt.
She wrote: “G’morning! What would you like to hear from the Health Secretary @MattHancock today?”
Piers shared Naga’s tweet with questions he’d like to be answered.
In view of his 7.6 million followers, he wrote: “1) Why has he refused to come on @GMB for six months during this country’s biggest health crisis for 100yrs, when our viewers help pay his salary?”
“2) How many PEOPLE are being tested each day for Covid?”
He went on to urge Naga to “get him on the record”.
Many of Naga’s 226,000 followers also put forward the question they’d like to know the answers to.
One user wrote: “Clear, simple guidelines for the restrictions. Why only six at home but in a pub with lots of people in groups?”
A second commented: “You know we will have a spike in 2 weeks, why are schools still open? Why you putting our kids in danger?”
“His resignation would be a start,” a third savagely added.
During the interview, Naga quizzed Matt about reports that the UK could see a rise in coronavirus-related deaths if there are no urgent interventions and a potential second lockdown.
Matt admitted urgent action was needed as coronavirus cases continue to soar in certain parts of England and said a second lockdown was a “last line of defence”.
He went on to address the new rule of six and reminded viewers to be cautious and get a test if they have symptoms.
Naga also asked the Health Secretary if the Government were prepared for a second national lockdown, to which he said they are.
“We all need to come together,” he went on to add as he continued to urge Britons to follow the rules.
Yesterday, Matt announced a lockdown in North East areas in a bid to combat the spread.
