Piers Morgan and family sing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody amid coronavirus lockdown

Piers Morgan has revealed what he and his family have been doing to alleviate the boredom in coronavirus lockdown – and it involves an unlikely musical cover. 

The journalist revealed that he and his family have been singing alternate lines of Queen’s iconic hit song Bohemian Rhapsody over WhatsApp as they socially distance around the world. 

He told his followers: ‘My family WhatsApp group is currently singing consecutive lines from Bohemian Rhapsody, from all parts of the world – contributions spontaneously added, sometimes with melodic glory, often with shocking tunelessness. 

‘It’s one of the most comical things I’ve ever partaken in.’

As amazing as that sounds, sadly Piers didn’t include any videos or voice notes of their performance.

The Good Morning Britain presenter has been outspoken about the coronavirus pandemic, as he continues to work on the show as a key worker bringing people the news. 

‘They’re not telling us the full story, they’re not being transparent. That’s why journalists keep going after them. 

‘They keep talking about ramping things up, they’re not ramping it up. They don’t have the tests. We just don’t have it, we didn’t order it in time.’ 

Piers continued: ‘Germany is testing 10 times as many people every day as we are in this country. 

What does self-isolation mean?

Self-isolation means staying indoors and avoiding all contact with other people for 14 days, according to the NHS.

It means no going to work, school, the shops or even to the park for some fresh air, in order to minimise the risk of passing on Covid-19.

Public transport and taxis are a no-no and you shouldn’t have visitors over, even if you just stay at home.

Anyone in self-isolation is advised to ask friends, family and delivery drivers to pick things up for you and drop them-off. You should put a sign outside telling people you are self-isolating and everything should be left on the floor outside your front door to avoid the risk of further infections.

Those who are self-isolating are still advised to stay away from their pets as much as possible and to wash their hands before and after touching them.

If you live in a house share and have to self-isolate, the advice is to stay in your room with the door closed and only emerge to use communal kitchens, bathrooms and living areas if absolutely necessary.

Who should self-isolate?

The government advises anyone returning from Category 1 areas (Hubei, Iran, Italy and Daegu or Cheongdo in South Korea), to go straight home and self-isolate, even if they don’t display any symptoms.

Travellers should use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next.

Anyone returning from Category 2 areas should self-isolate and call 111 if they have Covid-19 symptoms. You can find the list of those places here.

‘We’re the sixth biggest economy in the world. How did this happen? We’ve got 8,000 ventitlators, that’s going to be nowhere near enough for what is coming over the next two weeks.’

He also revealed that his youngest son Albert has lost his sense of taste and smell, which is suspected to be one of the symptoms of coronavirus. 

Piers revealed: ‘One of my sons had it in a much milder way. He lost his taste and smell – and still hasn’t got it back. My youngest boy.

’Luckily he didn’t get anything like what you had but he did experience it for a few days. It’s a very unnerving thing to get.’
