Piers Morgan has blasted Callum Hudson-Odoi after the footballer was arrested on Sunday morning – and called for the Chelsea winger to be banned when Premier League football returns.
It is reported that the England international breached lockdown rules over the weekend to be with a woman who called the police and an ambulance.
The Metropolitan Police said they and the London Ambulance Service had been called to ‘a report of an unwell woman’ around 03:53 in the early hours of Sunday.
Morgan has now spoken about the incident, with the Good Morning Britain presenter speaking before Premier League sides vote on a return to training on Monday.

He wrote on Twitter: “These idiots unfairly tarnish the reputations of all footballers, and make a mockery of the ‘safety first’ plan to bring back the Premier League.
“They should be told if they get caught breaking lockdown rules like this, they’re banned from playing if football restarts.”
According to reports, Hudson-Odoi had an argument with the woman at his London home and remains in the police custody. But the unnamed woman was taken to hospital.
Hudson-Odoi had played 17 Premier League matches for Chelsea so far this season before the coronavirus pandemic halted the season.
The player revealed he had contracted the virus on the same day Arsenal confirmed Mikel Arteta had tested positive, which led to the suspension of the campaign.
He even released a video on his social media accounts to confirm he had fully recovered from the disease shortly afterwards.
