‘I don’t believe that would work.’ Lorraine Kelly discusses working with Piers once more.
Following her visit on GMB, LORRAINE KELLY confessed she isn’t in a rush to rekindle her on-screen connection with Piers Morgan.
Lorraine Kelly, 61, revealed that an on-screen collaboration with her pal Piers Morgan, 57, would not work because they are “too similar.” It comes after the duo co-hosted ITV’s Good Morning Britain for a few weeks in March, just before the outspoken presenter departed following his remarks about the Duchess of Sussex.

Lorraine Kelly is a well-known actress.
Lorraine admitted that she couldn’t work with Piers every day after he won the Ofcom probe for his statements regarding Meghan Markle.
“I don’t think I could do it permanently,” she added in a new interview.
“I don’t believe that would work.

“The thing about Piers is that you’d get folks who agreed with him and those who didn’t agree with him but wanted to know what he was saying.”
Lorraine went on to say that she thinks it’s a “great tragedy” that he departed GMB, a show that many of his followers say they’ve stopped watching since he left.

She answered, “Daytime TV gets the stigma of being fluffy,” emphasizing that fashion features should coexist with hard-hitting reports on Afghanistan and Black Lives Matter.
“Those who believe that aren’t actually watching.
“I’m a bit sassy!”
“I do share my opinions on things,” she continued, “and I know it may be risky these days, especially on live television.”
Despite this, Lorraine shrugged when asked if she would censor anyone.
She told The Mirror, “Even if I totally disagree with someone’s point of view!”
