Lorraine fans gobsmacked as host swears while issuing frank coronavirus warning

Television presenter Lorraine Kelly turned the air blue during the latest instalment of her ITV chat show on Monday.

The 60-year-old host chatted to health expert Dr Hilary Jones about the latest coronavirus news when she accidentally swore live on air.

Lorraine and Dr Hilary discussed the potential second wave and the Government's latest rules which mean groups no larger than six can be together.

However, after looking at photos from bars and pubs from the past weekend, Lorraine swore on air as she warned viewers not to "go out on the p**s".

Taking to Twitter to discuss Lorraine's bad language , one shocked fan penned: "Can’t believe @reallorraine just said something about people going on the piss!"

Another added: "Lorraine said 'don't go out on the p**s'. Well said Lorraine."

A third posted: "Tut tut, fancy Lorraine saying p**s on daytime TV."

While a fourth wrote: "Did @lorraine just say 'out on the piss'? Isn’t that swearing? I’ve always thought so."

Lorraine and Dr Hilary watched clips from the streets of London from the past weekend which showed pub and restaurant-goers dancing on the street

With almost no social distancing taking place in the clips, the ITV pair watched in anguish, with Lorraine admitting it makes her "despair".

Shortly after, she issued a warning of her own, telling viewers to be sensible, to adhere to the rules and not to "go out on the p**s".

It comes after Dr Hilary Jones warned Good Morning Britain viewers that the UK needs to "get a grip" and follow social distancing rules, to avoid a second wave of coronavirus.

Chatting to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Monday, Hilary advised viewers on the "worrying" rise in cases in the UK, as well as specifically in care homes following the devastating scandal surrounding care home deaths from the virus earlier this year.

Referencing how other countries including France have seen a spike in new cases, Hilary warned we may not be far behind.

Speaking on GMB, he said: "We've seen a rise in cases, over 3,000 again three days on the trot.

"We're seeing an increase in hospitalisations, there's nine deaths throughout the UK. That may not sound much now, but when you see a rise in cases inevitably you will see more hospitalisations.

"We're also seeing a rise in the number of cases in care homes, which is really worrying.

"These are the people who are most vulnerable, and there's been about 1,000 cases in care homes around the country.

"We need to get a grip on this, and make sure people do understand why social distancing is so important and that the rule of six is easy to understand.
