Piers Morgan's description of Boris Johnson's senior aide as a 'rat-faced weasel' has attracted complaints to the television watchdog.
Good Morning Britain presenter Morgan used his last appearance on-air before his summer break to slam Johnson and Cummings during another fiery rant.
His remarks came as it was revealed the government was looking to force NHS staff to start paying for hospital car park charges again, despite the coronavirus crisis continuing.
The presenter mimicked Johnson whilst grunting, shaking his head, and mocking the way the prime minister claps.
'This is how they reward them, isn't it extraordinary?

In the same programme the presenter vented about Cummings, branding him a 'rat-faced weasel' after Tory MP Mark Francois threatened an army general by saying the senior aide will 'sort him out'.

'He's a small man with a big chip on his shoulder,' the Mirror's Kevin Maguire told the programme.
Morgan replied: 'Of all the threats General Carter has to deal with over the decades of his outstanding military service to this country, Dominic Cummings, that little rat-faced weasel from Downing Street who broke lockdown rules... he would be the lowest on the list of potential threats that keeps General Carter awake at night'.
