Lorraine Kelly lost her rag over the government’s rumoured plans to lift for coronavirus restrictions during the festive period live on Good Morning Britain.
Defence Secretary Ben Wallace left Kelly “frustrated”, leading to her blasting the minister and other leaders on Thursday after he’d been interviewed by Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard.
The presenter fumed: “I know how important Christmas is, I really do. I really appreciate that, but for goodness sake will we stop all this woolliness?
“And trying to be nice, and wanting to be loved, and wanting to be liked. They’re leaders, they’re in charge – say what is right for the country and what is gonna save lives! I mean what’s more important, having a dinner and being with your family – I know how important that is believe you me – or keeping everybody safe?
“It’s a no-brainer so just stop waffling about, and just say it as it is, that’s it, it’s gone, sorry. You have to be with a smaller group of people this year, that’s gonna be hard, but it means that actually in the New Year we will get over this quicker.”
