THIRSTY Piers Morgan sipped a pint at 6.30am on Good Morning Britain ahead of pubs reopening on July 4th.

Piers, 55, couldn’t believe his luck when he saw the pint within reach on the show today, as police urged punters to “be calm, be sensible” on Saturday.

The presenter was slipped a Harvey’s beer as News Correspondent Jonathan Swain reported live from a pub about the easing of lockdown rules.

However, fans were not pleased that he flouted “health and safety” by boozing at work.

One commented on his photo on Instagram and said: “Drink alcohol while working is against health and safety. Piers Morgan should know that. Sack him now.”

Piers read out the comment on Instagram and said: “Now some of the nobs have gone over from Twitter and are now on Instagram.

“Well Rick, you have been blocked. I now need another follower to make up for Rick. So follow me!”

Boozers have been allowed to reopen on July 4th and the date has been dubbed ‘SUPER SATURDAY‘.

Jonathan told the presenters it was his first proper pint in months, before he said to Piers: “Piers, take a look behind you, we have a gift for you here.”

And the shocked host screeched: “Where did that come from!?”

He took a sip and savoured the taste in front of viewers, as co-host Susanna Reid groaned: “It’s 6.30am in the morning kids.”

Piers took no notice, saying: “Swainy, I’m very Jealous … I’ll be having a couple of pints on Saturday.”

However, he also warned viewers to “please be careful on Saturday.”

He added: “We all want to have fun but please give the police a break, they need us to help them, we are all in this together.”

Police expect drunken violence and disorder to break out and blasted the decision to reopen pubs on a Saturday — calling it a “countdown to carnival.”

Police could go into pubs to break up crowds and fine drinkers who aren’t socially distancing

People will have to follow strict rules on how the behave once they are inside pubs as well – including no dancing, no hanging out at the bar to order drinks, keeping raised voices down, and abiding by a “one-in-one-out” rule in toilets.
