The lead anchor told co-host Susanna Reid, “I’m going to see both my sons,” to which she replied, “What? You shouldn’t see them at the same time Piers Morgan. ‘
The outspoken news personality – who has not indicated which of his sons he will meet – explained: “Separate times, separate days. One son I hired as my cleaner and the other son I hired as my part-time broker.
“So I can see them both in houses. It’s just common sense, “the TV star quipped.

Joke’s on Piers: By injecting some humor into the stressful issue, the journalist’s eldest son joked, “No, stay away from us,” when Piers said he was confused about the new lockdown rules
Piers spent the nation’s closure with his wife Celia Walden and their eight-year-old daughter Elise.
The 75-year-old mother of four-year-old father, Gabrielle, has been in isolation since March, forcing the pair to spend Mother’s Day separately.
On Sunday evening, the Prime Minister’s ‘exit plan’ for the COVID-19 shutdown caused the nation to be divided on what to do next.
In his prerecorded speech from Downing Street, the UK leader insisted that those unable to work from home should return to work, enjoy unlimited outdoor exercise and hint at schools returning in June and some public occasions that reopened in July.
However, details of when people can see their family and friends were particularly scarce.
Piers didn’t stop sharing, he was confused about the new rules and tweeted, “I haven’t seen two of my sons for ten weeks.
“They live 10 minutes away, next to a big regular. Can I go see them if I stay 2 meters away? The answer seems to be no, but I can see thousands of strangers in my local park every day if I stay 2 meters away. Does not make any sense.’
The journalist’s eldest son brought some humor to the stressful matter and joked, “No, stay away from us.”
