Good Morning Britain star Piers Morgan made the most generous offer to NHS doctors, nurses and other staff live on air on the breakfast show on Wednesday. Speaking during an interview with Location, Location, Location presenter Kirstie Allsopp from her home in Devon, the 54-year-old pledged to cover the cost of healthcare workers who are charged parking fees on hospital grounds during the coronavirus pandemic.

The dad-of-four announced: "I will say now to any health worker, during the future of this crisis, however long it lasts, if any of you get a parking ticket at a hospital where you're working, I will pay it for you, I will pay it, and I will then go to the government and have the battle, you don't get involved. Send it here to Good Morning Britain and I will pay the parking ticket." Kirstie nodded approvingly and added a generous offer of her own: "I will go halves with you on those parking tickets, Piers I totally get that," she said. Piers shared the clip to his Instagram page, adding the caption: "A pledge to all NHS workers."
