Piers Morgan admitted he had reached his “apocalypse” when he was forced to let his wife cut his hair.

The Good Morning Britain presenter is unable to visit a professional hairdresser as the UK is in government lockdown as part of the measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Morgan, 55, said on the ITV breakfast show: “I genuinely reached the apocalypse last night when I had to ask my wife to cut my hair.

“She kept saying ‘Oops’ and ‘Oh dear’. But the worst moment was when she said, ‘Don’t worry, I’ve watched a YouTube video.’

“It was disconcerting, but we just have to muddle on through.”

The TV presenter married his second wife, journalist Celia Walden, 44, in 2010. They have an eight-year-old daughter Elise.

Walden joked on social media, “I don’t know what’s funnier: that he believed me when I said I could cut hair - or that I just shaved my initials into the back of his head.”

But Morgan insisted on GMB that she was only joking.

His co-host Susanna Reid suggested he just shave all his hair off, to which he retorted she should do the same.

Morgan told Reid, 49: “I think you’d look hot with no hair.”

Last month Morgan celebrated his 55th birthday in lockdown.

He shared a picture of himself at home with a birthday cake and bottle of red wine on Monday night.

Morgan said: “My wife and daughter made me that cake.”

The former tabloid editor has three sons from a previous marriage.

His youngest son Albert, 19, has showed symptoms of COVID-19.

Morgan revealed on the ITV show: “One of my sons had it. He lost his taste and smell and still hasn't got it back... That taste and smell thing that I think now most people are associating with the virus. It’s a very unnerving thing to get.”
