Cummings was accused of flouting restrictions twice to drive 250 miles to visit his parents in Durham.
Several cabinet ministers defended Cummings over the accusations, before the second trip was un-earthed this evening.
Now, taking to Twitter, Morgan insisted that ‘due to today’s developments, I am regretfully forced to ban all cabinet ministers from appearing on Good Morning Britain.
‘Only exceptions will be those who didn’t publicly support Cummings breaching lockdown.’

Both of the special advisers’ trips were made before Prime Minister Boris Johnson made the first steps towards easing the lockdown.
Cummings returned to work in Downing Street on April 14 after suffering with coronavirus symptoms, but was then spotted near his parents house in Durham on April 19.
Downing Street insisted he ‘stayed put’ on his parent’s farm on his first visit. But 70-year-old retired chemistry teacher said he saw Cummings and his family walking along the River Tees in Barnard Castle on April 12 – 30 miles from the home.
