WATCH: Lorraine Kelly’s ice-cold live reaction to former GMTV colleague Esther McVey

By Media Mole

God bless the People’s Presenter, Lorraine Kelly, who today spoke for the nation in her reaction to her ex-GMTV colleague and rabid Tory leadership contender Esther McVey.

“Do you remember Esther McVey from her GMTV days?” asked Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid when handing over to a Lorraine preview.

“…Yep.” Was Lorraine Kelly’s response after a pause and some cold nodding. “Yes I do.”

Later in her segment, Piers Morgan followed up with, “So you got on with Esther then, Lorraine?”

“Oh,” Kelly sighed, shaking her head. “I don’t remember, I don’t remember love, I don’t remember at all, I really don’t, it was an awful long time ago.”
