WATCH: Lorraine Kelly’s spectacular dismissal of Jennifer Arcuri interview

“What’s the point?”

By Media Mole

Lorraine “Barely Disguised Disgust At Former Colleague Esther McVey” Kelly has struck with her ice-cold televisual powers once again!

This time, her devastating dismissal was reserved for Jennifer Arcuri, the innocent friend of Boris Johnson and successful businesswoman entirely in her own right.

“That was crazy, wasn’t it?” she told the Good Morning Britain presenters with a spectacular shrug following an interview with Arcuri. “What’s the point? Coming on and not answering any questions? Point in that?”

“I’m sorry?” asked Arcuri herself.

“It just doesn’t make any sense, what’s the point in you coming on and then not saying anything?”

“I’m sorry?”

“What’s the point in you coming on the TV to clear the air and then you don’t say anything?”

“Well, I believe I said a few things, what is it that you’re looking for that I say?”

“Well, you didn’t answer any of the questions that were put to you, and I just don’t see the point of you coming on, to be honest. Anyway let me tell you what’s coming on after half past…”

Arcuri was left frowning baffled at the camera. Well and truly Lorrained.
