What did Kate Garraway say on GMB?

The harmless throwaway comment that got some fans hot under the collar came near to the close of the show.

The duo were chatting with a teenager from India who has taken the ballet world by storm and scored a place at a prestigious academy in London.

Kate asked their guest if he had any advice for Ranvir on her Strictly debut.

Some viewers then thought she questioned whether the pair were “related” when trying to justify asking him a question about her co-host.

Fans immediately rushed to social media to speculate if her comment was racially insensitive.

Viewers question GMB stars Kate and Ranvir’s interview style

It seems Kate and Ranvir were facing a tough crowd generally today.

They’d angered viewers earlier in the show during an interview with Labour MP Lisa Nandy.

Lisa appeared on the show to discuss the situation in Manchester following the Tory government decision to back out on the funding package they had originally offered.

Kate and Ranvir grilled the MP on what led Manchester’s mayor Andy Burnham to push the government for more funding.

The interview left viewers divided, with many rushing to social media to criticise the presenting duo for not letting Lisa finish her train of thought on multiple occasions.

However, with such a contentious issue, other viewers appreciated the MP being pressed.
