It came after Vicky confessed her crush to The Sun's Fabulous magazine, admitting she's a big fan of the former newspaper editor.

She declared: "It’s [lockdown] making me fancy Piers Morgan. Just a bit, mind.

"But I f*****g love him and I want him to be our next Prime Minster. I’m obsessed! I can’t get enough of him calling everyone out..."

Vicky praised Piers for his no-nonsense handling of the coronavirus story and his determination to get answers from politicians.

She added: "He’s been the main champion for this from the get-go and I think he’s doing the most fantastic job of holding our politicians to account.

"He’s not just hammering people for no reason, which is what he used to do.

"Now he’s got a real campaign and he’s like a dog with a bone, and I love it."

Piers has been married to Celia since 2010 and they have an eight-year-old daughter named Elise.

He also has three grown-up sons from his previous marriage.

Vicky is happily loved-up with boyfriend Ercan Ramadan.
