Gemma Atkinson slams ‘selfish p***ks’ amid family coronavirus concerns

TV and radio star Gemma Atkinson, 35, slammed so-called ‘covidiots’ who are flouting the lockdown rules, online today.

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant branded a group of people who met up at the weekend, “selfish p***ks,” after seeing a picture of them online despite the rules to stay home to reduce the spread of the deadly disease.

Mum-of-one Gemma then opened up about her own family’s experience with highly contagious COVID-19.

Earlier today, the Hits Radio host expressed her disgust in a lengthy post uploaded to her Instagram account.

The post, which was shared with her 1.4 million followers on Stories, began: “Press call them covidiots. I call them selfish p***ks!”

Gemma, who is isolating at home with her boyfriend Gorka Marquez and their nine-month-old daughter Mia, went on to say: “4 of my close family & a friend have suffered terribly with this virus!”

“Bet your families are so proud of you.”

The photograph which accompanied the post showed a group of around 30 people posing for a picture during an outdoor party at the weekend.

In a second post, which followed shortly after, Gemma spoke about some of the messages she had received from frontline and key workers.

It read: “I’ve had a DM [direct message] from a policeman saying they have never had as much abuse as they get from ‘covidiots.’ “

The former soap star also received a message from a nurse, who wished such people could see the damage coronavirus does to those who contract it.

She continued: “And and nurse wishing these people not following rules could see how much a covid patient struggles in their last few hrs of life.”(sic)
