'Lorraine' Viewers Baffled By John Barrowman's Scottish Accent

'Lorraine' Viewers Baffled By John Barrowman's Scottish Accent

John Barrowman baffled Thursday's Lorraine viewers after he switched his usual American twang for a strong Scottish accent just like the show's host.

As he chatted to Lorraine Kelly about life after the I'm A Celebrity jungle, John picked up a similar accent.

And viewers watching at home were puzzled by the accent change, taking to Twitter to question what was going on.

One fan questioned: "Is John Barrowman picking up on Lorraine's accent?? I swear he spun a bit Scottish this morning."

"I'm finding the accent flippin a bit weird one min he's full on American and the next he [talks] like an old Scottish fisherman. It's all just a bit odd for me," posted another confused Lorraine fan.

As tweets questioning his accent change flooded social media, show host Lorraine asked John to clear things up.

"Lots of people are saying, 'Why are you talking in a Scottish accent?'," Lorraine pointed out, adding: "It's because you're talking to me."

"Anybody who is Scottish I will speak with a Scottish accent, because you are privileged and also because when I was a kid when I moved to the States I was bullied."

The Doctor Who icon continued: "So anybody who doesn't speak Scottish I speak with an American accent.

"Leave me alone! It's the way I speak! I'm bi-dialectical."

John and his family hail from Glasgow, but they moved to Aurora, Illinois, when he was eight, as his dad got a new job.

However, as John explained on Lorraine and plenty of his fans pointed out on Twitter, he was picked on a school because of his Scottish twang. From there, he picked up a more American accent.
