Lorraine Kelly left Good Morning Britain hosts Susanna Reid and Alastair Campbell speechless as she awkwardly dodged a question about England's upcoming Euro 2020 match.

When asked by the hosts if she was supporting England over Denmark, the Scottish presenter replied: "Oh, listen, I'm supporting football."

The 61 year old's neutral answer didn't go down with co-hosts Susanna and Alistair, who simultaneously responded with: "Ohhhhh."

Realising that her answer didn't come across as she had intended, Lorraine, whose native Scottish football team were knocked out in the group stages, responded: "No, no, no, wait a minute! I think that all of this [supporting teams]… it's silly and petty.


"To be honest… Denmark has an amazing story, but of course, I'll be wanting England to do well," Lorraine clarified.

Lorraine has been a television favourite for nearly forty years, however the star recently revealed that her long-standing career was almost cut short.

The mother-of-one was working as a Glasgow-based reporter with TV-AM when she received the devastating news that she had been sacked – just weeks after she welcomed her beautiful daughter Rosie in 1994.

Speaking on the podcast White Wine Question Time hosted by Kate Thornton, she recalled: "They told me not to come back.

"They basically said, 'Thanks very much and cheerio' because they had someone else. Anthea Turner was brought in to present with Eamonn [Holmes].

"It was a long, long time ago – 27 years ago – because [my daughter] Rosie is 27," she said.

Rosie herself is now a mum too, after welcoming her first child with her TV cameraman husband Steve Smith.

The 27-year-old has spoken about how daunting she has found becoming a parent, stating: "It was really frightening. I had this really tiny baby and I wasn't sure what was going to happen."
