Lorraine Kelly has claimed Boris Johnson looked ‘frightened’ as he responded to the Prime Minister who seemed unsure who she was.
Mr Johnson stunned Susanna Reid with his remark during an interview with yesterday’s edition of Good Morning Britain. As the time allotted for the interview drew to a close, Susanna said, “Lorraine is waiting to pick up on all the questions you’ve raised in this interview.”
Mr Johnson replied: ‘Who is Lorraine?’ Susanna replied, “Who is Lorraine?” Lorraine is a legend”.

Richard Madeley and Susanna addressed the swap on Wednesday’s edition of the ITV news program as they spoke to Lorraine about what to expect on today’s edition of her show eponymous discussion. The Scottish presenter was in hysterics as Susanna claimed it was ‘the Lorraine moment to end all Lorraine moments’.
Lorraine added: “I don’t expect people to know who I am. Don’t you think he thought I was waiting backstage to jump on him and interview him?
“He looked scared like I was going to come running in.” Susanna claimed she believed the Prime Minister was trying to prank.
She added: “I think he does it because he would be the only person in the country who doesn’t know who Lorraine Kelly is.” Susanna asked the Prime Minister about the cost of living crisis in yesterday’s interview – and prompted Mr Johnson to make a startling confession.
The prime minister first said the government is ‘doing everything in its power to help deal with the pressures on family budgets’. But when Susanna pushed him on this and asked why he didn’t impose a one-off tax on energy companies, he finally admitted the government could do more.
Mr Johnson said: ‘This country is in a foolish position taking power from France and elsewhere because we haven’t done enough to invest in our own security of supply. Susanna quickly chimed in, “So let the energy companies invest, and at the same time, why don’t you impose a windfall tax?
“In order to help people who pay hundreds of energy bills to be told that we have to let the energy companies invest, that’s their job. Your job is to help people pay their bills.”
