Coronavirus: GBBO star Prue Leith thinks the young should be saved over elderly

The deadly virus is known to have a greater impact on the elderly and those with pre-existing medical condition, but Leith says it is “a no brainer’ whether it is preferential for a youngster or someone her own age to die from it. “If I was knocked over by a bus tomorrow, it would be a fair cop, I’ve had wonderful life and it would be ridiculous to expect it to go on like this forever. “I think even if you are allowed in to see your love ones with a mask and Perspex screen in front of you and looking like an alien and if your mother is a bit senile or confused – how terrible for them.
