GMB’s Dr Hilary ‘utterly sorry’ for mask slip-up after ’10-hour day’

Dr Hilary Jones took the opportunity on Good Morning Britain today to apologise for briefly breaking Covid rules.

The incident, which took place two months ago, saw Dr Hilary photographed in a chemist without a mask.

The medical expert explained to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid today that after a “10-hour day”, his mask had completely slipped his mind.

“Two months ago,” he recalled, “I’d done the show here, I’d done Lorraine.

“I’d gone to St George’s Hospital to film what they’re doing with the NHS Charities Together, they’re producing some areas to relax for the staff after a hard day’s work with Covid, producing gardens outside.

Piers told that he’d remembered shortly after, telling his Twitter followers: “I did breach covid rules for a few seconds by forgetting to put my mask on before I got in the cab. Fortunately, I remembered as we pulled away & put it on. Masks help save lives, so it’s very important we all remember to wear them when we should.”

Later he added: “I’m guilty as charged. For a few seconds, I was a Covidiot.”

*Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
