LORRAINE Kelly was told to “go f**k yourself” by comedian James Acaster after naming Piers Morgan her ‘hero of 2020’.
The Scottish television presenter came under fire by comedian James Acaster as she gave her pick of the heroes of the year on The Last Leg’s festive special.
During one of the segments of the episode, the guests were asked to name their hero of the year.
When asked, Kelly said: “Stay with me on this one… Piers Morgan.”
Which was quickly followed by Acaster telling Kelly to “go f**ck yourself” which left everyone in the studio in hysterics.
She then said: “Stay with me, I understand, I appreciate the sentiment and don’t look at me like that.”
Kelly then went on to explain the reason for her answer and said: “Do you remember when Boris Johnson hid in a fridge rather than be interviewed by Piers Morgan?
“None of the Cabinet Ministers would come on the telly because they were too scared and they all phoned up like ‘do you remember us? Can we come back on the telly?
“And they came back on the telly but it would’ve been better if they didn’t.”
When done explaining the host, Adam Hills pointed out that Kelly may have won over Acaster.
But Acaster replied with: “You don’t get to stop being a villain for two seconds and now you’re a hero.”
Co-host Alex Brooker then said in fits of laughter: “Nothing sums up 2020 more than the nation’s sweetheart being told to go f**k herself.”
Which Kelly replied: “It’s fine, I can take it.”
