Piers Morgan has launched a scathing attack on former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson following allegations of law-breaking parties at 10 Downing Street during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Privileges Committee released a report accusing the Prime Minister of lying to MPs on five occasions in relation to the so-called Partygate allegations.

However, Boris Johnson has denied any wrongdoing.

During his Piers Morgan Uncensored show on TalkTV, Morgan called Johnson a "serial liar" and demanded he "get in the bin".

Surrey-born Morgan played clips of Johnson urging people to "stay at home" at the start of the pandemic, and highlighted the death of a 13-year-old boy who was "buried alone by men in hazmat suits".

A picture was also shown of the late Queen, "masked and alone as she mourned her husband of 73 years".

Morgan read out a statement from a Downing Street official included in the report alleging that Number 10 held "wine time Fridays" throughout the entirety of lockdown, with social distancing and mask-wearing not enforced.

One party is said to have been held on the night before Prince Philip's funeral.

Piers described the report as "30,000 pages of shame" and compared Johnson to Donald Trump "with a thesaurus".

Last week, Boris Johnson stepped down as MP with “immediate effect”.

The 58-year-old said he was quitting his seat which will trigger an immediate by-election because he was “bewildered and appalled” at the Privileges Committee’s investigation into him.

The Conservative member said he had received a letter from the committee which is investigating whether he lied to MPs over partygate “making it clear, much to my amazement, that they are determined to use the proceedings against me to drive me out of parliament”.

According to PA news agency, he said: “I have today written to my association in Uxbridge and South Ruislip to say that I am stepping down forthwith and triggering an immediate by-election."
