Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Good Morning Britain anchor Richard Madeley has slammed American rapper, Nicki Minaj, following her recent claims surrounding the Covid-19 vaccines.

The rapper has found herself at the centre of a feud between Boris Johnson and Professor Chris Whitty following her bizarre claims.

However, Richard was less than impressed after Nicki whose real name is Onika took to Twitter, claiming a relative became impotent after receiving the coronavirus vaccination.

Following her posts, England's chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty said during a Downing Street press conference last night: "I regret to say, I think they know that they are peddling untruths but they still do it, in my view, they should be ashamed."

Nicki, 38, posted a series of tweets to her 22 million followers claimed: "My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen.

"His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you're comfortable with ur decision, not bullied."

Her comments didn't go unnoticed with many high profiled names taking to social media to criticise the Starships musician who later used her platform to hit out at the likes of Laura Kuenssberg, Piers Morgan and Boris Johnson.
