Miriam Margolyes left The Last Leg viewers in shock when she declared on the show that she had wanted Boris Johnson to die of coronavirus.
She was asked how she felt about the governments handling of the pandemic and didn’t hold back in her response. The Harry Potter star said:
Appallingly, of course, appallingly,’ she said. ‘It’s a disgrace, it’s a scandal. It’s a public scandal. I had difficulty not wanting Boris Johnson to die.
‘I wanted him to die. Then I thought that will reflect badly on me and I don’t want to be the sort of person that wants people to die. ‘So then I wanted him to get better, which he did do, he did get better. But he didn’t get better as a human being. And I really would prefer that.
‘So we’re in the s**t, basically, here.’
