Piers Morgan furious with Kanye West for 'breaking quarantine rules' in London

Piers Morgan has criticised Kanye West after he was seen appearing to ‘break quarantine rules’ after jetting into London with his daughter North, seven.

The rapper, 43, is based over in the US, where his family resides in LA and owns a multi-million dollar ranch in Wyoming, but was seen in the city over the weekend with North.

His appearance has caused some confusion as America is currently on the UK’s ‘quarantine list’ when it comes to travel restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Travel from those countries red-listed require you to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival to the UK.

Good Morning Britain host Piers hit out at Kanye as he questioned whether the Gold-Digger hit-maker had gone against quarantine rules and, if so, why he had been allowed to.

Piers vented: ‘It’s a disgrace that Kanye West can walk around London with no quarantine, when everybody else has to quarantine, who does he think he is?’

He suggested that seeing celebrities going against quarantine measures in place sends out the wrong message to young people and makes them more likely to go against the rules themselves.

‘We seen Kanye coming into London, he’s in the US one day, flying into London the next,’ Piers said, accusing Kanye of ‘deliberately ignoring the rules’ everybody else is ‘abiding’ by.

‘It causes incredible resentment,’ he suggested. ‘That’s why so many young people in particular go, “well, if they’re not going to do it, neither are we.”‘

During Monday’s broadcast, Piers and Susanna Reid had interviewed the three Brits who are currently stuck in a quarantine centre in Florence, Italy.

Will Castle and his two friends Rhys and Quinn have been stuck in isolation in Italy for nearly nine weeks now and are only allowed to leave the country if they test negative for coronavirus in two consecutive tests.

While Will has tested negative twice in a row and has been given the ok to return to the UK, his friends are forced to remain in quarantine as their second test came back positive.

Quizzed by Piers on how they feel about seeing celebrities jetting between countries despite quarantine rules, while they’ve been stuck inside the same room, Will said: ‘It’s just infuriating. We’ve stuck to the rules.

‘We’re stuck in this room, following procedures, then to hear stories like that is just frustrating. Can Kanye West fly in with his private jet and get us out of here?!’

Kanye’s appearance in London comes after his wife Kim Kardashian revealed he had battled coronavirus himself back in February.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
