Susanna reacted to Boris' snub on Tuesday's show

Susanna said: "Lorraine, there is always a moment which I call, the Lorraine moment. Yesterday was the Lorraine moment to end all Lorraine moments, wasn't it?"

The 62-year-old replied: "It was very funny. Look, I don't expect people to know who I am, I really, really don't but I just thought that was - Do you not think, Susanna, he thought I was waiting in the wings to jump on him, to interview him because he looked frightened as if I was going to run in? I don't know." 

Lorraine has hosted her programme since 2010

The GMB host responded: "I think he thought it was a joke to say that and I think he actually does [know who you are] because otherwise, he's the only person in the country who doesn't know who Lorraine Kelly is." 

When asked whether Boris knew who Lorraine was, his official spokesperson said on Tuesday: "The Prime Minister wasn't fully across ITV's daytime line-up this morning, but you'll appreciate he has a number of issues to deal with," according to The Telegraph

Good Morning Britain airs on weekdays from 6am on ITV.
