Piers Morgan devastated as he reveals he can no longer taste fine wine after catching Covid

PIERS Morgan can no longer taste or smell fine wine after catching Covid – and he's devastated.

Despite being double-jabbed, the former Good Morning Britain presenter revealed he caught Covid during chaos at the Euro 2020 final.

He wrote in the Mail on Sunday: "After two weeks battling the Covid Delta variant, I’ve been left with waves of fatigue and a persistent cough that apparently could go on for quite a while.

"But by far the most annoying side effect is my current ongoing inability to taste or smell fine wine.

"Fellow vino-loving friends have been quick to offer support, albeit also sensing an opportunity to save money.

"‘I have a bottle of Chateau Batailley for us to share,’ emailed Andrew Neil from his home in France.

"‘But if your taste buds are still in recess then I will plunder my private stash of Blue Nun for you. Apparently if you drink it, you could die, but if you inject it, the virus dies.

"‘Proven scientific fact – Donald Trump told me.’"

Piers believe he was infected during chaos at Wembley amid England's heartbreaking defeat to Italy.

He was bed-ridden for two weeks having been struck down with a raging fever, chills and violent coughing fits.

Piers first felt unwell two days after the game.

He took a lateral flow and PCR test, both of which were positive for coronavirus.

"As I'm sure everyone who gets it feels, it's a strange, disquieting moment to know I have this killer virus inside me," he said.

And he went on to suffer a range of miserable symptoms – including "alarming" chest pains.

'THE ROUGHEST I'VE EVER FELT'

"My voice now sounds like Barry White, though I couldn't feel less like a Walrus of Love," he joked.

"This is definitely the roughest I've felt from any illness in my adult life, BUT, as I slowly come out the other side, coughing and spluttering.

"I'm still here – unlike so many millions around the world who've lost their lives to Covid in this pandemic.

"For that, I owe a heartfelt debt of thanks to the brilliant scientists up in Oxford who created the Astra-Zeneca vaccine with such astonishing speed."
