This Morning fans astonished at boss who gave his staff the day off to go to the pub as bars reopen across the UK

A BIG-hearted boss gave his entire staff the day off work today – to go to the pub.

This Morning viewers were staggered when a caller rung in to announce all his employees were being encouraged to down tools and hit the beer garden.

A caller called Chris explained: "I told my entire company to take the day off so they can try and get to the pub for lunch."

Dermot O'Leary pumped his fist laughing: "Chris, how do you fancy coming in and guest-editing This Morning?"

The boss explained that he had sent all 65 staff members to take a break at the start of the week.

He said: "Booking a lunch on a Monday or haircut on a Monday is easier than other days.

"I did actually have an email from one of my colleagues this morning and I just emailed back saying: 'Today is a day for you so get the hell off your emails.'

"The last few months, everyone's been sat at home on their own so today get out, socialise a little."

Dermot replied: "When you need them to work later down the line you can remind them of it."

Pubs, gyms, salons and non-essential shops have opened for the first time in 114 days today as the Covid lockdown eases.
