Piers Morgan has clashed with his own son over coronavirus guidelines.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, who was recently fat-shamed by his co-star Susanna Reid, has been outspoken over his opinions on the importance of following the Covid-19 government safety restrictions since the pandemic began earlier this year.

Not one to shy away from disagreeing with other people's opinions, the 55 year old has now lashed out at his son Spencer, 27, after he questioned why anyone would care about breaching quarantine rules.

Spencer took to Twitter to repost an article, which was titled: "BREAKING: Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood accused of bringing back girls to hotel room in Iceland in breach of quarantine rules."

In the caption, he wrote: "Literally who cares".

Clearly unafraid to challenge his son in the spotlight, Piers retweeted the post for his 7million followers to see and wrote: "I’d imagine all the people they have now massively inconvenienced with their selfless, reckless behaviour including their England & club colleagues who have abided by the rules to ensure football matches can be played."

Impressed by Piers' parenting skills some praised him as one commented: "I'm glad you enlightened your son!"

"Daddy smacks son’s a**e good and proper!!!!!!!!" [sic] a second said, while a third added: "Confiscate your son's phone!"

This isn't the first time Piers has called out someone for their views on Covid-19 recently.

Earlier this month the controversial TV presenter hit out at 62 year old Denise Welch following her appearance on This Morning.

Loose Women panellist Denise appeared on the daytime show to discuss the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, accusing the public and media of "scaremongering".

Good Morning Britain host Piers made his feelings very clear, sparking a row with Denise and her co-star Nadia Sawalha as he called her a "dumb, deluded & dangerous Covid-denier".

After making a dig at Denise on Twitter recently, he returned to the social media platform to take a fresh swipe at the star by urging "Covidiots" to follow her instead of him.

He wrote: "Memo to all Covidiot deniers & sceptics, and those who only want to hear ‘positive news’ about the pandemic even when the news is concerning: stop following me & follow Professor Denise Welch instead.

"Your mind-numbingly complacent ignorance is damaging my mental health."
