Piers Morgan has revealed his youngest son Albert lost his sense of taste and smell among his ‘mild symptoms’ connected to coronavirus.
The Good Morning Britain host was discussing the latest on the coronavirus outbreak when he said that his son had been showing signs that point to Covid-19 – particularly loss of taste and smell.
‘One of my sons had it in a much milder way. He lost his taste and smell – and still hasn’t got it back. My youngest boy,’ he said about the sense loss.
‘I think most people are associating that with the virus,’ Piers added. ’Luckily he didn’t get anything like what you had but he did experience it for a few days.
‘It’s a very unnerving thing to get.’

The news came as a shock to Susanna, who quizzed him on what happened, but he assured that his family is fine.
‘Yes, he had mild symptoms which have cleared up now,’ he declared.
Piers has three sons from his marriage to Marion Shalloe – Albert, 19, Stanley, 22, and Spencer, 26.
He also has an eight-year-old daughter, Elise.
His revelation comes after Susanna spent two weeks in self-isolation after her own son started showing symptoms, following government advice.
She returned to work on Tuesday after the quarantine, admitting that she had missed being in the studio.
As news reporters, the pair continue to work amid the crisis as it’s considered essential work.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
