Former This Morning presenter Fern Britton, 64, has hit out at Dominic Cummings, 49, and Boris Johnson, 57, after an interview with the prime minister’s former chief aide aired on the BBC last night. The Daughters of Cornwall author branded the duo “wacko chaps”, while describing Cummings as “Machiavellian and fuelled by revenge” during his conversation with journalist Laura Kuenssberg, 44.
Fern penned: “Watching #dominicCummings & @bbclaurak interview.
“Cummings Machiavellian and fuelled by revenge.
“#BorisJohnson a year 7 school boy boarder .”
“Whacko chaps,”(sic) the star fumed.

Fern went on to address Cummings’ claims that Johnson wanted to keep meeting the Queen in person despite the pandemic and his warnings that the then 93-year-old monarch would be at risk of dying if she caught coronavirus.
She also spoke out on Cummings’ claims that the PM sent him a WhatsApp message on October 15 to resist a second lockdown, which he justified by arguing most people who were dying were in their 80s.
“That is above life expectancy. So get Covid and Live longer,” he allegedly wrote in a message to Cummings.
Johnson then reportedly added: “And I no longer buy all this NHS overwhelmed stuff. Folks, I think we may need to recalibrate.”

A fifth replied: “Sadly I totally believe him , it’s his principals I don’t like.”
“What is wrong with these people? It’s not okay,” a sixth fumed.
Another revelation Cummings made during the interview was that despite personally viewing the UK’s withdrawal from the EU as a “good thing”, he admitted it could be “a mistake”.
While talking to journalist Laura, the PM’s former top aide said that “no-one on Earth” knew whether Brexit was a good idea for Britain, although he was the driving force behind the Vote Leave campaign.
Cummings went on to claim that he discussed removing the PM from his role just weeks after the 2019 election.
