Lorraine Kelly was praised by fans after gatecrashing a GMB interview.

The TV presenter appeared in a clip on Good Morning Britain this morning, when host Piers Morgan passed over to her in the studio to reveal what she had coming up on her show today.

However, before speaking about her line-up, the ITV presenter had a few words to say to today’s Good Morning Britain guest.

American businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri appeared on the morning news show earlier today, where she discussed her relationship with Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who she has been accused of having an affair with.

During her interview with hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, the businesswoman seemed to swerve questions over whether she did actually have an affair with the politician.

And Lorraine did not hide her annoyance at Jennifer’s interview.

As soon as the TV presenter was introduced on screen, she laid into the interview, saying, “Yeah, that was crazy. What’s the point, coming on and not answering any questions?”

Presenter Piers then passed the question to a rather shell-shocked Jennifer, asking if she’d like to respond to Lorraine.

A stunned Jennifer responded, “Well, I believe I said a few things. What is it that you’re looking for that I say?”

Lorraine hit back, “You didn’t answer any of the questions that were put to you and I just don’t see the point of you coming on to be honest”.

‘And THAT is why @lorraine is a freaking legend !! 👑,’ exclaimed another.

Lorraine Kelly telling Jennifer Arcuri there’s no point coming on if she’s not answering any Qs is what journos should be doing every time,’ explained one viewer.

While others joked, ‘Lorraine Kelly to host the election debates please’ and ‘#lorrainekelly, please be Prime Minister’.
