Michael Gove said he was shaken to hear his friend and colleague Boris Johnson had been taken into intensive care yesterday.

Joining Piers and Susanna on Good Morning Britain, Gove revealed that it was a huge shock to hear Johnson had been admitted to ICU as his condition worsened.

After questions over who would be running the country while Johnson recovered, Gove confirmed the Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab would be chairing the 'important meetings' today.

He also offered a deep message of support to his colleague in the hope that he would make a full recovery.

Scottish Chief Medical Officer made a 'big mistake' - Sturgeon

Nicola Sturgeon says the former Scottish Chief Medical Officer Catherine Calderwood made a big mistake by breaking coronavirus lockdown rules.

Dr Calderwood stepped down after being found to have broken the lockdown advice she was giving by visiting her second home in Fife.

It came to light that Calderwood had travelled to her holiday home on two separate occasions and she resigned from her post after apologising at a press conference.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said Calderwood could not carry on in her position after undermining the public advice the government was giving.

'Coronavirus felt like I had razors in my throat' - Matt Hancock promises 100,000 tests a day

Matt Hancock reaffirmed his promise to deliver 100,000 coronavirus tests a day by the end of this month.

The Health Secretary confirmed the government has pledged to test 100,000 people a day by the end of April but first it needs to validate the legitimacy of the tests.

Hancock repeated the phrase heard from several government ministers that 'no test is better than a bad test'.

He said that he has already had to refuse to purchase a number of tests because they have failed to pass regulations for accuracy.
