Lilian Cox, one of the UK's oldest identical twins, has called the Prime Minister a "w**ker" after her sister died of coronavirus.

She has spoken about her grief of losing her best friend, Doris Hobday, and slammed Boris Johnson over how he has handled the pandemic.

The sisters caught the virus and Doris died days before receiving the letter telling her she could receive the Covid jab.

As Doris died, twin Lilian was being rushed to hospital, writes The Mirror.

She managed to speak to Doris on the phone and begged her to "fight for her life".

But when she left hospital two weeks later, she received the devastating news that her sister had passed away.

Lilian told Sunday People: “These things happen for a reason but it’s not fair.

"We came into the world together.

"She was two hours older than me and we shared everything.

"She wasn’t just my sister, she was my best friend.”

She added: “The nurses and doctors were fantastic but Boris is a bloody w*****.

“I think lockdown should have happened a lot earlier – then there would not have been half as many deaths.”

The sisters – who were determined to live until they were 100 – were inseparable, known as the Tipton twins, they worked in the same West Midlands factories and lived on the same road.

They became household names in 2019 when they appeared on ITV's This Morning and told Phil Schofield they had forgotten to put on underwear.

And Piers Morgan blushed when they told of their love for him and Jason Statham.

They lived next door to each other in an assisted living complex in their later years and formed a support bubble for the pandemic.

To ensure they didn't contract Covid, they avoided relatives at Christmas and spent it together instead.

But their family fear relaxed restrictions meant other residents unknowingly brought the virus into the home.

Doris passed away on January 5, and Lilian is recovering at her daughter Vivien's home in Dudley.

She has started a memorial fundraiser for the Beacon Centre for the blind, which helped Doris' late husband Raymond.

Her funeral is taking place on February 15 and she will be buried alongside her beloved husband.
