Carrie gives Boris a well-overdue chop! Piers Morgan reveals PM’s fiancee has FINALLY given him a much-needed haircut ‘after seeing GMB host begging on behalf of the nation’ to fix his lockdown locks
- Piers Morgan today revealed Carrie Symonds has cut Boris Johnson’s hair
- Good Morning Britain host compared PM to scarecrow Worzel Gummidge
- Hairdressers will remain shut until April 12 at the earliest under the ‘roadmap’
This morning the ITV presenter compared Mr Johnson to scarecrow Worzel Gummidge after the Prime Minister unveiled his ultra-cautious roadmap out of England’s third lockdown to MPs and the public.
Under No10’s plans to ease the national shutdown, hairdressers, salons and nail bars will remain shut until April 12 ‘at the earliest’ – provided coronavirus cases, hospitalisations and deaths continue to fall.
Mr Morgan had claimed that Mr Johnson’s fiancee Ms Symonds had acquired scissors to cut his hair following yesterday’s statement to the Commons and Downing Street press conference to the nation.
But today the Good Morning Britain host announced on Twitter that the Prime Minister had had his shaggy blonde locks cut by his partner ‘for the first time’.
‘EXCLUSIVE: I can reveal to the world that Prime Minister @BorisJohnson has today had his hair cut by his partner @carriesymonds for the first time,’ he tweeted.

Earlier today, Mr Morgan’s co-host Susanna Reid had said: ‘The Sun this morning does a countdown to when, for instance, we might get a haircut because Boris’ hair was looking a little…’
Mr Morgan then interjected: ‘He literally has become Wurzel Gummidge. Can we beam in on Wurzel?’
Ms Reid added: ‘It’s 48 days until you can get a haircut Boris.’
Mr Morgan then revealed: ‘Now I am told on good authority – I don’t want to want to be breaching any trade secrets here – but I’m told by sources close to the Prime Minister that some scissors may have already made their way to Downing Street, to the private quarters of the Prime Minister.
‘And his other half, Carrie Symonds, may be contemplating using them on the Prime Ministerial bonce.
‘I have just suggested it is a national crisis. Because where does his hair go in the next six or seven weeks. There are spouses all over the country getting the scissors out and having a go.
‘My question for Carrie Symonds is: could it honestly get any worse? Could that hair look any more ridiculous? What I’m saying Carrie, is do it for your country. Do it for your country.’

Under the Prime Minister’s four-point roadmap, schools in England will reopen from March 8 – though the next stage of loosening will not be until March 29, when the formal Stay at Home edict is finally dropped in favour of ‘Stay Local’, and the Rule of Six makes a comeback.
It will be extended to allow two households to gather, enabling relatives to meet properly for the first time in months.
But shops, hairdressers and pubs must remain closed until April 12 at the earliest – the same time gyms can get back up and running – regardless of mounting fears about the economic meltdown.
Campsites and holiday lets can reopen for single households from April 12 – but international travel is completely off the cards until at least May 17.
Social distancing and masks could still be used for months more and vaccine passports may be required for a full return to normality.
Sports can start to return from May 17, although venues will need to work on reduced capacities. Up to 30 people can go to weddings from the same date, but are stuck at that number until the next phase of the roadmap.
Only at June 21 will all legal limits on social contact go, and the remaining elements of the hospitality sector be allowed to open.
Mr Johnson has stressed that he is being driven by ‘data not dates’ and the timeline is not guaranteed.
