Yawning Lorraine Kelly interrupts interview to sort out a leg cramp and MOUSE runs across the studio

She’s got more than a decade’s worth of experience hosting her eponymous show on ITV. 

But Lorraine Kelly’s programme was thrown into chaos on Monday morning when a series of strange mishaps hijacked her interview with KSI. 

‘Thank you for putting up with me,’ Lorraine, 61, told the YouTube star, 27,  after a pesky fly, her troublesome leg cramp, a bout of yawning, and a mouse in the studio interrupted their live chat. 

Chaos: Lorraine Kelly’s show was thrown into chaos on Monday morning when a series of strange mishaps hijacked her interview with KSI 

From the moment the interview began, Lorraine’s mind appeared to be elsewhere, leading viewers to claim it was the ‘most random’ segment ever.

Midway through introducing the Down Like That musician, she waved her hands wildly in the air saying: ‘There’s a fly in here it’s really annoying, sorry.’ 

Unfazed by the insect intruder, KSI laughed off the interruption and waited to tell the host about his time on Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer. 

As the gamer told Lorraine: ‘There’s a few ups and downs but it’s a very entertaining episode for sure,’ they were then distracted for a second time.

The Scottish presenter grimaced in pain as she spoke over KSI, saying: ‘I’m sorry. I don’t know what’s wrong with me today but I’ve got a wee bit of cramp in my leg, 

‘I wish that you were here so that you could help me. I’m just gonna walk it off if I walk it off a wee bit it’ll be fine.’ 

Lorraine then shuffled up and down on the spot in an attempt to ease the affliction as her interviewee giggled from his home in central London. 

She continued: ‘Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn’t but it’s really annoying and it’s really poppycock… that’s what it is.’ 

Ouch! The Scottish presenter grimaced in pain as some severe leg cramp caused her to stop the interview and shuffle up and down to ease the affliction

The presenter was clearly exhausted by the morning’s chaotic events as she then started yawning while KSI answered her questions.  

To top off the bizarre interview, Lorraine exclaimed: ‘There’s a mouse! It just ran across here!’ 

Apologising to her understanding guest, she concluded: ‘Thank you for putting up with me, with flies, with mice, It’s been absolutely crazy!’

Lorraine continued with her streak of blunders when she accidentally called Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield ‘Holl and Philly’.

Apologising for the unsolicited nickname she said to the This Morning presenters, Lorraine mused: ‘I’m sorry I called you Holl and Philly… It’s been a very strange day, all will be revealed. 

Viewers were quick to suspect the chaos may not have been accidental.  

Fans took to Twitter to suggest the mishaps could be part of a prank for Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

‘Is Lorraine drunk?? Has she got a list of weird phrases to include?? This is the most random interview ever!!’ wrote one user.

‘Gotta be an ant and dec prank,’ another viewer guessed. 

‘Something seems off with Lorraine this morning. Feel like we will see her on Saturday Night Takeaway when Ant and Dec are telling her what to say,’ theorised a second fan. 

‘I reckon she is doing an Ant and Dec wind up, just too erratic and throwing in random words,’ concluded a third viewer. 

The comedy duo are notorious for including pranks as part of their weekend programme.
