Lorraine’s Ranvir Singh has insisted she did not mean to be rude to Lioness Beth Mead, after being branded ‘patronising’ and ‘rude’ by viewers when she told the England footballer she looks ‘knackered’ during an interview this morning. 

The player, 27, spoke to Ranvir, who was standing in for Lorraine on the ITV morning show on Tuesday, about the Lioness’ win in the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 championship over the weekend.

However the 44-year-old host started off the chat by telling the Arsenal forward that she looks ‘a bit knackered’.

Following the interview, a viewer criticised the host on Twitter, writing: ‘Honestly, @ranvir01 on #lorraine @bmeado9 doesn’t look knackered at all! Rude.’

Ranvir replied, saying that she meant to say ‘felt knackered’ instead of ‘look knackered’.

‘I meant to say ‘felt’, the perils of live TV for you,’ the host said. ‘I think she has forgiven me.’

Ranvir also said she ‘agreed’ the footballer did not look knackered.

Viewers were left shocked after the interview and were quick to call the segment ‘cringe’ and ‘awkward’ on Twitter.

It came after GMB’s Richard Madeley was blasted for being ‘sexist’ and ‘infantilising’ Euro 2022 star Chloe Kelly by nicknaming her ‘Coco’ because ‘that’s what he calls his daughter’ during an interview this morning.

The incident comes after GMB’s Richard Madeley was blasted for being ‘sexist’ and ‘infantilising’ Euro 2022 star Chloe Kelly by nicknaming her ‘Coco’ because ‘that’s what he calls his daughter’ during an interview this morning. 

The player, 24, spoke to Richard and Kate Garraway on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain about her historic strike during the final which was followed by one of the most iconic Wembley celebrations. 

The English professional footballer revealed she took her shirt off during her goal celebration because a ‘male footballer would be doing exactly the same’ saying it is the ‘best yellow card she has ever received.’ 

However at the end of the interview, she appeared stunned when Richard told her: ‘Chloe – or ‘Coco’ as I call my daughter Chloe – Coco, thank you very much indeed for coming in.’

Many of those watching the programme were left stunned by the interaction, branding it ‘patronising and inappropriate’ 

Many of those watching were left baffled by the moment, with one writing: ‘Wonder if he’d infantilize one of the Lions in this manner.’

Another commented: ‘Chloe Kelly’s face after Richard Madeley says ‘Chloe – or ‘Coco’ as I call my daughter Chloe – Coco, thank you very much indeed for coming in.’

‘I have to say, I cannot imagine a young male player who’d just scored the winning goal for England in a final going on TV and being told ‘Colin – or ‘Col-Col’ as I call my son Colin – Col-Col, thank you very much indeed for coming in.’

A third called it ‘patronising’, while another appeared to cringe, writing: ‘Oh lordy!’
