Lorraine viewers were furious with a holidaymaker who moaned about having to isolate in a quarantine hotel in Majorca today (Monday July 19).
But viewers had little sympathy and slammed her for moaning – especially as she knew the risks.
What happened on Lorraine today?
Gabriella flew to Majorca 12 days ago for a four-day holiday with her best friend, Georgia, when the country was on the green list.
Unfortunately, Georgia contracted Covid and the pair are now isolating in a different hotel run by the local hospital.
They do not have to pay for their accommodation.
“To be honest, it’s just horrendous,” Gabriella said.
“I mean, we’ve been putting Facetimes in with our friends and family, but the amount of tears me and Georgia have had – like hysterically crying – [has even been] to the point where we can’t even see each other because we don’t want to see each other upset.”
She added: “We knew what were getting ourselves into, we’re not looking for sympathy.
“It’s more a warning for everyone.
“But it’s going to have a massive impact. Another 10 days without getting a walk or some fresh air.”
So people are still losing their jobs and homes in the UK because of Covid yet they talk to some girl who gets stuck in a hotel for 11days because she made the choice to go on holiday during a pandemic! Get a grip and start talking to those really in a bad place! #lorraine

You chose to go on holiday. Now you’ve got to quarantine in a hotel for free. Now you’re moaning about the hotel and the food? Others in UK don’t go on tv to moan when they have to quarantine? #lorraine

The warning should be – don’t go on holiday during a worldwide pandemic #lorraine

What did viewers think of Georgia?
Viewers weren’t happy with Gabriella as she described her conditions.
One on Twitter wrote: “The warning should be – don’t go on holiday during a worldwide pandemic.”
Another said: “So people are still losing their jobs and homes in the UK because of Covid yet they talk to some girl who gets stuck in a hotel for 11 days because she made the choice to go on holiday during a pandemic!
“Get a grip and start talking to those really in a bad place! #lorraine.”
A third fumed: “You chose to go on holiday. Now you’ve got to quarantine in a hotel for free.
“Now you’re moaning about the hotel and the food? Others in UK don’t go on TV to moan when they have to quarantine? #lorraine.”
What else happened during the interview?
However, it wasn’t just Gabriella that viewers fumed at.
Sitting in on the interview was Dr Hilary, who asked her if it had all been worth it for a four-day holiday.
One viewer said: “Does Hillary need to be that smug to that young girl? #lorraine @lorraine.”
Another said: “Why is Dr Hilary so smug and rude?
“People were allowed to go to Majorca, and entitled to make their own decisions, it’s just a shame that this has happened to them girls.
“I think this isolation is punishment enough without adding insult to injury.”
