James Martin: Saturday Morning chef hits out at ‘idiots’ for snubbing coronavirus warning

James Martin took to Twitter today to speak out about people who are still not following government’s advice amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Clearly unimpressed, the 47-year-old TV chef branded them “idiots,” for not listening.

The TV cook, who currently presents ITV lifestyle show James Martin’s Saturday Morning, retweeted a message about the coronavirus online today in view of his 661,000 followers.

James wrote: “Listen to this you idiots that aren’t listening.”

The chef retweeted a post from an NHS worker who was begging people to listen and share a coronavirus message from an intensive care doctor.

Her tweet read: “Please, please share. I’ve worked all weekend on an ambulance and people really aren’t getting it.”

Alongside the post, the ambulance worker shared a recording of a radio show interview in which an intensive care consultant pleaded with people to take the government advice on social distancing seriously.

In the snippet from an LBC interview with Tom Swarbrick, NHS consultant Dr Jack spoke to the host about what life is like on the front line of the health service.

He said they were already near capacity and would struggle to cope when the number COVID-19 cases rises.

The medical man urged people to stay at home to reduce the spread of the disease.

He said: “It’s beyond me why people can’t see what they are creating by just continuing to go out.

“We’re treating the people who were infected two weeks ago and we’re getting full. People getting infected now who will be treated in two weeks’ time, I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Dr Jack went on to say.

“I’ve been doing this for three weeks and it’s getting worse. There are doctors and nurses going down. Healthcare workers will die.”

He continued: “I’ve cried. My colleagues have cried. I’ve been doing this for 25 years and I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s catastrophic.

“When I’m hearing people saying they are going to go to the pub or it’s Mother’s Day, I’m afraid that is killing people. It’s going to kill people.”

The government are advising people to avoid all unnecessary contact to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
