In the original article, Callard, who is better known as Liz McDonald in ITV's long-running soap, told Best magazine she was concerned mental health was becoming "fashionable..."

Twitter was soon divided between those backing Morgan's position that some claim to suffer mental illness as a form of attention-seeking, while others were outraged he could be so dismissive of suffering and add to the stigma. There is a danger it can become "fashionable"'.

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner disagreed.

People are so afraid to discuss their mental health issues because of that overwhelming and unnecessary stigma.

Turner noticed his comment and clapped back-hard.

Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner has criticised Piers Morgan for suggesting celebrities talk about mental health because it is "fashionable".

'But please go ahead and shun them back into silence'.

A few hours after that tweet, Turner shared a thread addressing people who joke about mental illness.

Thunder vs. Spurs - Game Recap
San Antonio started 14-of-14 from the three-point line and it appeared as though they'd run away with the game as a result. It's incredible this game is as close as it was considering how well they shot the ball.

"You are not alone, you can manage your illness, and people who make fun of it are the minority. not you. You're so loved. You are NOT a burden".

Meanwhile Great British Bake Off victor Nadiya Hussain wrote a response to his initial reaction to Callard's claim with: 'You haven't got a clue'. She also made the point that joking about mental health is not the way to enter into that conversation.

She pointed out how important it is for people in the public eye to be honest about mental illness now more than ever.

'There's a great deal of glamour going with it now and it's not a glamorous illness, it's not glamorous for the person who has to live with that and nearly become the carer'.

Perhaps someday they might all get along. I think there's a tendency to think that you [can] be flaky and unreliable, but of course really you're just the opposite.

One user then demanded: "Maybe @piersmorgan would like to identify for us which celebs are faking mental health problems and say it to their faces on GMB?"

In England, one in six people report experiencing a common mental health problem, such as anxiety and depression, in any given week, the charity said.
