Piers Morgan makes sudden dash back to the UK after cutting St Tropez holiday short to avoid two-week quarantine

PIERS Morgan is making a quick dash back to the UK to avoid a two-week quarantine.

The 55-year-old Good Morning Britain presenter cut his St Tropez holiday unexpectedly short as an urgent decision loomed over coronavirus travel restrictions.

Piers faced being one of hundreds of thousands of British tourists in France told to quarantine for two weeks when they arrive home.

Ministers are meeting today to decide whether to remove half a dozen countries from quarantine-free travel corridors and France has been labelled "on the brink" of being included.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson had warned he would be "ruthless" on making quarantine decisions for countries such as France.

A decision is expected to be announced today or tomorrow.

Refusing to take any chances, Piers packed his bags and left his luxury villa.

He posted a snap on Instagram from Nice airport with sons Spencer and Bertie.

Piers wrote: "Quarantine dodgers."

Piers has been living it up in Saint Tropez with his family and celeb friends, but he is due back on Good Morning Britain next month.


Earlier this week, Piers said he was "praying" he won't be forced to quarantine as rumours swirled that France could be added to the travel restriction list.

Although Piers is bound to be disappointed, fans are desperate to have him closer to home.

Some are even demanding he come back on air earlier to continue challenging the government about the travel restrictions.

He has received over 4,000 Ofcom complaints so far this year over his hard-hitting interviews, but simply told viewers to "switch off" if they don't like him.

Before lockdown, he revealed that he has signed a contract that will keep him on Good Morning Britain until 2021.
