Lorraine Kelly called herself an ‘idiot’ today after suffering an awkward blunder with Kate Garraway.

As Good Morning Britain cut to ITV’s Lorraine to see what the presenter had coming up on her show, Lorraine made a comment about Kate’s Life Stories series.

Kate has taken over the role of host on ITV’s Life Stories from Piers Morgan.

The first episode aired last night as she interviewed football legend John Barnes.

Ben added: “It’s been a long week, Lorraine. Unless you’re doing something at nine o’clock tonight.”

Laughing, Lorraine said: “Yes I am, I’m going [to watch!]”

Kate also found it amusing as she told Lorraine: “I tell you what I’m doing, I’m going round to Lorraine’s house to find a VHS to play it to her.”
