Watch the hilarious clip below:
The Lorraine presenter didn’t hold back as she reacted to Matt Hancock’s interview on the Diary of a CEO podcast with Dragon's Den star and businessman Steven Bartlett.
Hancock resigned as health secretary last year after shocking leaked CCTV footage showed him canoodling with his adviser Gina Coladengelo in his Whitehall office.
At the time the footage was filmed, on 6th May 2021, social gatherings indoors between people from different households were banned by law. Official guidance encouraged everyone to stay two metres apart, and the leaked video proved Hancock had not abided by these rules.
He has kept a fairly low profile since he resigned, although he was in the audience for Jesy Nelson's infamous performance of her single Boyz at the Jingle Bell Ball last year.
In a new interview, in which he wore a similar navy blue polo neck and jeans he wore to the Jingle Bell Ball, he defended his rule break by claiming he “fell in love”.
But Lorraine was not impressed and she had a few choice words to say about his response to leaked footage and his outfit.
After hearing her comments, viewers at home were left in tears of laughter and called for the TV presenter to win a BAFTA for her sassy swipe.
A third said: “Got to love Lorraine Kelly, who just referred to Matt Hancock as a "pound shop Milk Tray Man" after he appeared in a podcast talking gooily about his lockdown-breaking romance.”
While one Twitter user shared: “I am LIVING for #lorraine’s savage take down of Matt Hancock. ‘Pound shop milk tray man’”.
One woman tagged Lorraine on Twitter and wrote: “Wins the TV today!”
And someone else tweeted a friend and said: “Lorraine Kelly just called him a "Poundshop Milk Tray man" on live TV”.
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
