Piers Morgan has lashed out at Madonna over what he called her “toe-curling attention-seeking” videos on social media, urging her to help health care workers instead.

The Vogue star has been updating her fans on Instagram and Twitter as she social distances, sharing clips showing her doing things such as tapping away on a typewriter, singing into a hairbrush and enjoying a bath filled filled with rose petals.

But it seems her snippets from quarantine have upset Good Morning Britain star Morgan.

“Can I suggest you do something, anything, to raise awareness/money for #coronavirus health care workers rather than just promote yourself with these incessant toe-curling attention-seeking videos?”

The pop star remarked that COVID-19 made people "equal in many ways".

She said: “That’s the thing about COVID-19. It doesn’t care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are.

“How smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell. It’s the great equaliser and what’s terrible about it is what’s great about it.

“What’s terrible about it is that it’s made us all equal in many ways, and what’s wonderful about is, is that it’s made us all equal in many ways.”

The 61-year-old went on: “Like I used to say at the end of ‘Human Nature’ every night, if the ship goes down, we’re all going down together.”
