Piers Morgan's youngest son Albert, 19, has been suffering from 'mild coronavirus symptoms'

Piers Morgan has revealed that his youngest son Albert, 19, has shown 'mild symptoms' of coronavirus.

Piers - who shares Albert, Spencer, 26, and Stanley, 22, with his ex-wife Marion Shalloe and also has an eight-year-old daughter, Elise, with wife Celia Walden - revealed the news on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday while discussing the respiratory illness.

He said: 'One of my sons had it in a much milder way. My youngest boy.

'I think most people are associating [lack of taste and smell] that with the virus, it's a very unnerving thing to get...

'Yes, he had mild symptoms which have cleared up now.'

Piers explained that he had not seen Albert for three weeks before he showed any of the mild symptoms, so did not need to self-isolate himself.

The 55-year-old broadcaster has been vocal about the UK government ordering people to stay inside to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

He tweeted this week: 'Already hearing people whine "I can't cope with much more of this!" because they have to sit inside watching TV.

'The lockdown's lasted 8 days. World War 2 lasted 5 YEARS. So man up, show some gumption, & help others rather than wallow in pathetic self-pity [sic].'

Appearing on Tuesday's show, Susanna - who still appeared on the show at times via video link - said: 'I have to say it's good to be back. I had a slightly different co-presenter when I was at home broadcasting from the sofa, and presented with Sookie [her cat].

'A little quieter than normal proceedings, just sitting on my lap. Sorry, I'm not social distancing from the cat.'

However, Susanna - who has sons Sam, 18, Finn, 16, and Jack, 15, with her ex-partner Dominic Cotton - admitted she's concerned her family are still susceptible to catching the virus.

Piers responded: 'None of you may have had the virus - this is the problem. Susanna and her sons might go out into the big wild world and one of them might get it.'
