Lorraine Kelly Urges Government To Cancel Christmas In Epic Rant

Lorraine Kelly Urges Government To Cancel Christmas In Epic Rant

Lorraine Kelly has urged the government to effectively cancel Christmas during an appearance on Good Morning Britain earlier.

The telly host, 60, whose show is on straight after GMB, appeared on the breakfast show this morning shortly after Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid had interviewed Defence Secretary Ben Wallace.

It came after reports this morning claimed that if families were able to mix at Christmas, Brits could have to pay the price in January, not only with another lockdown, but increased deaths across the country.

When asked for her thoughts on whether family gatherings at Christmas should go ahead, Lorraine didn't hold back with her views.

"Just say it. I'm getting so frustrated about this and I know how important Christmas is, I really do.

"I really appreciate that. But for goodness sake, will we stop all this woolliness and trying to be nice and wanting to be loved and wanting to be liked.

"The leaders who are in charge, say what is right for the country and what is going to save lives. What's more important, having a dinner and being with your family or keeping everybody safe?

"It's a no brainer so stop waffling about and just say it as it is, that's it, it's gone, sorry, you have to be with a smaller amount of people this year. That's going to be hard but actually, in the new year we have to get over this quicker."

Many viewers agreed with Lorraine - who Ben Shepherd suggested should be prime minister - with one tweeting: "We should continue with the restrictions. Xmas can come back next year. This is not a game. People are dying. Stay safe is this year's Christmas message."

While another said: "Absolutely not worth a month lockdown for a gathering at Christmas."

Others disagreed, however, with one pointing out the risk to mental health.

"While Lorraine is right to some extent, mental health and loneliness increase massively at Christmas and if people can't spend Christmas with friends and love ones I fear a massive spike in suicide and self harm."
