Death in Paradise star Shyko Amos has spoken out about Piers Morgan, 55, while questioning whether the Good Morning Britain host is “angling to be PM ‘Trump style’” with his “’for the people’ tweets”. Piers has been regularly sharing his views on how the UK Government is handling the coronavirus in view of his 7.5 million Twitter followers ever since the beginning of the pandemic.
The actress suggested in a post this afternoon that the journalist is “cut from the exact same cloth” as Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Chief Adviser Dominic Cummings, in spite of the criticism he has aimed at the politicians in recent weeks.
Shyko tweeted her views on Piers in view of her 4,064 followers this afternoon, writing: “Is @piersmorgan angling 2 be PM ‘Trump style’ with all these ‘for the people’ tweets?
“I mean Trump was his best friend and let’s face it, he is cut from the exact same cloth as Cummings and Boris.”
The Ruby Patterson star then hit out at Piers’ lack of “loyalty” by adding: “Well maybe not the exact same at least Boris possesses loyalty, misplaced or not.”

Alongside her post, Shyko added a GIF of Umbrella hitmaker Rihanna laughing during an interview with the caption “I see you”.
Fans took to the comments section of the Death in Paradise favourite’s post to share their thoughts.
One person wrote: “I’ve had to mute @piersmorgan. His constant negativity is so damaging for mental health. His lack of balanced reporting is shocking.
“People seem to have forgotten his past and this ‘man of the people’ nonsense is vomit inducing.”
However, another person disagreed with Shyko’s comments about Piers, replying: “That is it, unfortunately. Unfollowed. Try to read the room.”
Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Piers for comment.
Shyko’s comparisons between Piers, Johnson and Cummings come after the GMB star slammed the latter for his press conference in which he addressed allegations of a coronavirus lockdown breach when he travelled to visit his parents’ home in Durham.
Dominic explained in his statement that his eyesight had been affected by his illness after he and his wife Mary came down with suspected coronavirus symptoms, so he went for a short drive to see if he could travel safely before returning to London.

Cummings admitted he drove from his family’s Durham home to nearby Barnard Castle on Easter Sunday in his second trip during the COVID-19 lockdown, claiming it was on day 15 of his illness.
He said his vision had been “a bit weird”, which led his wife to suggest to “drive down the road” to check it.
Piers criticised Dominic’s claims about his eyesight in a series of tweets, with the first saying: “Oh what a load of f**king b******s.. he drove 30 miles to the castle to check his eyesight??! Shut up Cummings, we’re not mugs.”
The outspoken journalist then asked in a later post: “If his eyesight was damaged, why was he driving a car? #cummings.”

Piers went on to add in a separate tweet: “If you were ‘testing your eyesight’, why would you put your four-year-old child in the car for an hour when by then it was OK for him to stay with family?”
The presenter previously hit out at the Prime Minister after he defended Cummings prior to his press conference.
The ITV star wrote: “Boris Johnson just effectively told the British people the whole lockdown was a sham & the rules never needed to be heeded.
“What an utter disgrace. One rule for the Govt, another for the pl*bs.”
He concluded: “Shame on you, Prime Minister.”
