In August, Morgan told his fans that he had an issue with his eyes after having COVID.

“So, I'm now seeing weird ghostly cobwebs swimming around. It really is the virus that keeps on giving.”

Then in October he revealed that he still couldn't taste fine wine.

"Of all the many irritations of long COVID, not least me banging on about it, an ongoing inability (15 weeks after infection) to taste good wine and regular coffee is the worst,” he tweeted.
