Lorraine Kelly ‘really worried’ about ‘high risk’ mum and dad amid coronavirus

Lorraine Kelly has admitted that she is "really worried" about her "high risk" mum and dad amid the coronavirus.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain to speak about what was coming up on her programme later, she admitted that she was fearful about what was going on in the country.

The presenter said to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: "You know I'm usually a stoic and it takes a lot to get me nonplussed but I have had a few wibbles and I am really worried about my mum and dad.

"Because is it better for me to not go and see them, because my dad's really high risk? Do I then not go and see them? I don't know…"

Susanna interjected to ask Dr Hilary about Lorraine's concerns.

He replied: "I'm visiting my mum, she's 93, she's had respiratory problems in the past. So will my brothers.

"But if we've got symptoms we won't. We've gt the telephone, we've got the Internet. There are messages you can have with your elderly.

"And of course if we're worried about them we'll get deliveries if necessary. Life has to go on."

Lorraine appeared happy with his advice and hailed him the "voice of reason", however Piers interjected.

He said: "We need these questions answered because so many people are confused. And I'm sorry, I keep coming back to this but I think a lot of that confusion is from mixed messages from this government."

Lorraine agreed but said that we "needed to put our faith in science".

"But whose science?" Piers retorted.

"Well, our science," Lorraine replied. "I trust our scientists, I genuinely do."
