Piers Morgan has defended his vacation in Antigua after spending his festive break in the Caribbean.

At the weekend, the star was asked in which countries he “correctly” treated the pandemic.

Piers replied, “Many … including New Zealand, South Korea, Vietnam, Japan, Iceland, Singapore, Australia, Taiwan, and yes, China.”

Piers then said: “Antigua, like all Caribbean islands, coped with the pandemic very well thanks to strict border controls and a law-abiding population.
“Only 169 total cases & 5 deaths.”
However, one person hit back: “The government’s advice in December was not to travel unless it was essential.
“Piers are publicly calling for Christmas to be canceled and for stricter restrictions.
“He flew to Virgin in Antigua on the first day before Christmas.”
Piers then replied, “Happy New Year. 1) The government said that tier 3 travel overseas is allowed if people go straight to the airport.
Happy New Year.
1) The government said that Tier 3 travel overseas is allowed if people went straight to the airport.
2) I didn’t call to cancel Christmas.
3) I haven’t flown Virgin in a year.
