TV host Lorraine Kelly was discussing her love for wild water swimming with Australian singer Jason Donovan when she blurted out a very rude word
Lorraine Kelly shocked viewers on Tuesday morning when she swore during an interview with Jason Donovan.
The 61-year-old welcomed the Australian singer into the ITV studio to discuss his latest ventures, including an upcoming tour.
“During Covid, a lot of people have been taking up different hobbies,” Lorraine said to him.
“You’ve been painting but we share the joy of swimming, wild water swimming, isn’t it great?” she asked. “It actually makes you feel alive.”
“It feels fantastic, it gets rid of a hangover!” Jason replied as a clip of Lorraine swimming was shown onscreen.
“Oh gosh, there’s me and Angus look! There’s my wee dog!” she commented.
Jason then said: “Lorraine, I didn’t realise that I was actually going to see pictures of you swimming, which is fantastic! What month of the year was that?”
“That was last month,” she answered, before adding: “I did do it last November in Scotland though.”
“And how was that?” Jason asked as she bluntly replied: “Bollocking! It was really cold!”
Viewers tuning in at home were shocked to hear Lorraine swear on live television, and took to Twitter to comment.
“Did @reallorraine just say bol***king?? #lorraine,” one person asked.
Another tweeted: “I think @reallorraine might be in for a bit of a bol***king after that c**k up #lorraine.”
A third person commented: “Did @reallorraine just swear on #Lorraine when Jason Donovan asked how swimming in November went .. “Bol***king” .. I swear I heard her say .. Or do I need to get my ears syringed. Always a Joy Lorraine x.”
And a fourth pointed out: “#lorraine can get away with saying ‘Bol***king’ but Martin Clunes had to apologise for Bloody and To**er?? Technically he threw in a B**tard but you know.”
Last week, This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield was forced to apologise after actor Martin Clunes’ foul-mouthed speech on the show.
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
