Piers Morgan is 'praying' he won't be forced to quarantine as France could be added to the restriction list this week

PIERS Morgan admitted he's "praying" he won't be forced to quarantine as France could be added to the travel restriction list this week.

Piers, 55, quit the UK for St Tropez this summer after working tirelessly to deliver news on the coronavirus crisis during lockdown.

But now he could be forced to consider flying home in just TWO days and stay indoors for a further 14 days as deaths in the country hit 46,595.

The Good Morning Britain host shared his fears on Instagram today alongside a photo with his sons Spencer and Bertie.

The trio stood on the lawn of his luxury accommodation dressed in shirts and shorts, showing off their tans and smiling.

Piers quipped: "Brits abroad… praying for no quarantine."

However, his fans are desperate to have him back on air "challenging" the government about the travel restrictions.

One fan said they are on holiday in Portugal where UK travellers have to quarantine when they return home, and raged: "Piers, the only problem is, you are not home challenging them!

"We are in Portugal which has the least covid! Makes no sense to the Tourists or Portuguese!"

However, another scoffed: "I’m praying for a Greek lockdown so I can stay here!"

Piers' post comes after sources revealed France could be on the quarantine list within days unless they lower their Covid case numbers.

Paul Charles, spokesperson for campaign group Quash Quarantine and founder of travel consultancy The PC Agency, told the Telegraph: “I know from senior government sources that anything above 20 per 100,000 for a period of seven days or more is likely to lead to that country being added to the quarantine list.

“On that basis, France has just two days to gets its numbers below 20 – which is highly unlikely."

Piers has been living it up in Saint Tropez with his family and celeb friends, but he is due back on Good Morning Britain next month.

He has received over 4,000 Ofcom complaints so far this year while working on the show, telling viewers to "switch off" if they don't like him.

Before lockdown, he revealed that he has signed a contract that will keep him on Good Morning Britain until 2021.
