Lorraine Kelly reveals the REAL reason for her 'feud' with Esther McVey

Lorraine Kelly hit out at Esther McVey in their continuing 'feud' today, rubbishing claims the politician was promoted above her and slamming her views on LGBT rights.  

The presenter disputed the Tory leadership hopeful's claims their awkward TV exchange was down to her getting to co-host GMTV with Eamonn Holmes in the 1990s.

She said she can't remember ever interacting with the now-Tory MP because lots of people were put in the same dressing room - while she had a separate show. 

When probed on why she appeared stone-faced on Good Morning Britain yesterday, she admitted being 'sick to the back teeth of the toxic political atmosphere' and strongly disagreeing with McVey on the issue of LGBT rights.  

After GMB's Piers Morgan joked that the bad blood was all down to Lorraine 'losing a love battle with Eamonn Holmes', Lorraine set the record straight.

The daytime TV star shook her head and looked shocked as she watched a clip of the Tory leadership hopeful telling a press conference that the pair used to share a dressing room. 

She said: 'There is no battle! I'm baffled [by what McVey said]. I have had my own show since 1992 and I don't think she joined until five years later.

'As far as dressing rooms go... It was just a little room that everyone shared and we got ready in.

'It wasn't a dressing room with couches - it wasn't palatial at all.'

Prodding her further, Lorraine said, exasperated: 'I'll be genuinely honest with you, I don't remember, It was such a long time ago. I had my own show so there was no interaction.

'Yesterday I just got sick to the back teeth of the whole toxic political atmosphere and I thought I've had enough of this. I strongly disagree with her on LGBT rights.

'And they've been going round in circles on Brexit for two years and it's got to stop.'

She added in a nod to the Scottish Conservative leader's appearance on this morning's GMB: 'I'm really disappointed that Ruth Davidson is not standing. She's one of the few human beings in politics right now.'
