Lorraine Kelly has been left fuming after people took to the streets to protest the possibility of another lockdown.

The 60 year old, who recently shared a rare glimpse inside her beautiful garden and home, lashed out about the coronavirus demonstrations that took place in London over the weekend.

It is believed up to 15,000 people crammed into Trafalgar Square without masks while holding up signs that read 'We Do Not Consent'.

Speaking on her ITV morning show, the presenter explained to general practitioner Dr Hilary Jones that she was dumbfounded by the reaction to the government guidelines.

She said: "I was fuming at the weekend! The protests!

"I absolutely would love to take these people by the hand and show them the reality [of COVID-19]"

The popular star went on to explain that she believes her friend Kate Garraway should deliver a speech to allow the gravity of the situation to truly sink in.

Kate's husband Derek Draper caught Covid-19 at the start of the pandemic and has remained in hospital, in and out of a coma in the ICU, ever since.

Lorraine said: "Wouldn't you like our Kate Garraway to have a wee word with [the protesters] and tell them about the hell she's been living through with her husband."

She added: "It's absolutely ridiculous and totally irresponsible!"

Speaking to YOU Magazine, Kate recently recalled the first time she got to see Derek on FaceTime as he remained in hospital.

Kate explained: “When I finally got to FaceTime him, seeing him unconscious was a big shock. He’s lost nearly eight stone in weight, a lot of it muscle throughout his body.

“He looked worn-out, thin and pale with dark circles under his eyes and there were lots of tubes.”

The GMB star, who was recently defended by Kerry Katona as she was targeted by cruel trolls, wasn’t able to visit her husband in person until July.

She said: “We hope and believe he will come out of it, but we just don’t know.

“The heart of the family has been ripped out and we don’t know if we will ever get it back.”
