ITV’s Lorraine Kelly makes savage ‘pound shop’ Matt Hancock remarks over his appearance on podcast


Lorraine Kelly took a savage swipe at Matt Hancock as he speaks out in a new podcast.

The former Health Secretary has joined Dragon’s Den star Steven Bartlett on his hit podcast, Diary of a CEO.

The latest episode in the entrepreneur’s podcast was released on Monday and hears Mr Hancock talking about his resignation last year after he broke his own Covid rules.

He was forced out of office after CCTV footage was leaked, showing him in a clinch with adviser Gina Coladangelo in his Whitehall office.

But speaking to Steven, the former Cabinet minister said he didn’t break the law – but “fell in love”.

Appearing on her self-titled ITV show on Tuesday morning, Lorraine was seen speaking about a clip from the lengthy chat.

“Yeah… That’s Matt Hancock, remember him?” the host, 62, began. “Former Health Secretary talking to Dragon’s Den star Steven Bartlett about his resignation last year.”

Lorraine, however, couldn’t help but comment on Mr Hancock’s appearance as he donned a navy polo neck.

“I don’t know what he’s come as,” she remarked. “He looks like a Bond villain or a pound shop Milk Tray Man, maybe.”

She then added: “You will remember him, he was seen kissing his aid in a corridor. He says he fell in love though. The lady he was seen kissing, Gina, she was with him at the time of the recording that podcast.

“So he fell in love, but lots of people who were in love with each other weren’t able to see each other during that time, weren’t they?”

Lorraine continued on with her show and headed over the speak to Andi Peters. She said: “First though, it is competition time with our Andi who is in South Wales. Hi, Andi.”

Lorraine didn’t hold back

Andi laughed: “You go Lorraine! I love it. Pound shop Milk Tray Man. I love it. Some would say he is one of these, Lorraine…”

And Lorraine viewers were quick to comment on social media.

“I am LIVING for #lorraine’s savage take down of Matt Hancock. ‘Pound shop milk tray man,'” @mishymarsland tweeted.

@Stepharrnee said: “Lorraine calling Matt Hancock Poundshop Milk Tray man #Lorraine,” with added crying laughing emojis.

At the time the footage was taken, on May 6, 2021, indoor social gatherings of people from different households were banned under law.

Guidance urged people to stay two meters apart and avoid “face to face contact.

“We fell in love and that’s something that was completely outside of my control,” Mr Hancock told Steven on the podcast.

“Of course I regret the pain that’s caused and the very, very public nature – anyone who has been through this knows how difficult it is, how painful it is.”

Mr Hancock has since left his wife and children to start a relationship with Ms Coladangelo, who was also married with children.

She was in attendance at the recording of the interview, with Steven sharing pictures to his social media pages.

“Matt Hancock stopped by with his new partner Gina to speak to me,” he shared alongside the pictures of himself in conversation with Ms Colagangelo.
