Piers Morgan has revealed that he’s been suffering from an unusual Covid injury.
The former Good Morning Britain host caught the virus when he attended the Euro 2020 final match.
Despite having his two vaccinations, the 56-year-old developed symptoms of headaches, coughing and exhaustion a month ago.

Taking to Twitter to give an update on his Covid journey, the broadcaster wrote: “28-day Covid update: a new treat – aside from ongoing tedious fatigue & inability to taste wine, all the coughing’s caused a ‘posterior vitreous detachment’ in my left eye.
“So, I’m now seeing weird ghostly cobwebs swimming around. It really is the virus that keeps on giving.”
Posterior vitreous detachment is when the eyeball gel separates from the retina. It’s usually painless and does not affect one’s vision.
Last week, Piers wrote in his Daily Mail column: “It’s now been three weeks since I went down with Covid, and I still feel as rough as a badger’s backside, with chronic fatigue and a lack of taste/smell.”
The Presenter wrote about a conversation he had with singer James Blunt, who also caught the virus.
Speaking to Piers about his symptoms, James said it was much worse than he expected – he found it much harder to breath and struggled to talk.
The You’re Beautiful singer added: “And I had concerts in Bournemouth and the Royal Albert Hall at the end of the week.
“In the hours before the shows, I could not string a sentence together for coughing. I literally couldn’t talk and was fairly terrified.
“But we found a major flaw in the virus. It may have silenced my talking, but if I took enough steroids, inhalers, anti-inflammatories and antacids in the hour before the shows, then I could sing.”
Piers also wrote about how the virus caused him and and James to shed a few kilograms.
