This Morning viewers fume as millionaire Pimlico Plumbers boss blasts ‘lazy’ workers – from his villa in Marbella

THIS Morning viewers were staggered today when Pimlico Plumbers boss Charlie Mullins blasted 'lazy' workers - from a villa in Marbella.

The 67-year-old, who is worth £70million, left many fuming when he roasted people who have kept working from home.

He blasted people who were "sat at home in their pajamas" rather than coming into the workplace.

Charlie said: "It's very selfish that some people are working at home and couldn't care less about anyone else - or the economy."

However, many pointed out the fact he was coming live from sun-drenched Marbella with palm trees swaying behind him.

One tweeted: "Entitled p***k telling everyone needs to go back to work in his villa in Marbella. The world has changed end of."

A second said: "If that was my boss in Marbella sunning it up whilst telling me im just being lazy by working from home my resignation would be in before the end of this show."

Another mocked him, writing: "'I want people back to work' while I soak up the sun in Marbella."

Last week, it was revealed Charlie had sacked members of staff who refused to return to work from furlough.

And speaking on This Morning today, he said: "A lot of people don't want to come back to work because they comfortable at home.

"I believe a lot of them have been milking the system. It's time to get people back into the workplace.

"I'm not going to pay people for sitting at home."

Chancellor Rishi Sunak is beginning to wind up the coronavirus furlough scheme to encourage Brits to return to their jobs and get the economy moving again.

However, around a third of Brits have returned to their workplaces - a far lower percentage than other European countries.

This Morning branded 'irresponsible' for telling viewers how to lose a stone in 3wks by eating 800 calories a day
