Celebrity Gogglebox is set to return this evening, with a star-studded line-up that boasts the likes of The Masked Dancer’s Mo Gilligan, former EastEnders actor Martin Kemp, as well as Love Island’s Laura Whitmore and Iain Stirling. Now, ahead of the reality show’s new episodes, Channel 4 has also confirmed that Scottish TV presenter Lorraine Kelly and her daughter Rosie will be taking part. Lorraine wrote on Twitter: “So looking forward to this – Rosie and I had such a laugh.

“Ruby [their dog] was an angel!”

Lorraine also said they had been asked to do the programme because they “love the show so much”.

As her fans continue to express their delight at the news, a controversial episode of the Lorraine show has resurfaced.

In September 2020, Ms Sturgeon’s choice to depart from Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s UK-unified approach to the coronavirus pandemic sparked concerns the move could have been motivated by a desire to cause the Prime Minister “maximum embarrassment”.

The Scottish First Minister was confronted over her decision by the ITV host but Ms Sturgeon insisted the only thing driving her plans was keeping people as safe as possible.

Lorraine asked: “It’s really interesting because you seem to be setting the agenda here.

“You were with the UK Government at first, and now not following their lead while they do screeching U-turns on masks, exams, school meals over the summer.

“Is that sort of the plan? To cause maximum embarrassment to the UK Government?”

The First Minister denied the accusation and insisted that “nothing could be further from her mind”.

She added: “We’re in a global pandemic dealing with an infectious virus.

“Every single day right now, all I occupy myself with are the discussions and the decisions about how we keep people as safe as possible.

“It’s the only thing driving my decision making and the decision making of the Scottish government – trying to do the right thing, recognising, given how unprecedented this situation is, that we won’t always get things right.

“It’s important we don’t have things cast in stone and have the ability to be flexible and adapt.

“Every leader of every government everywhere is grappling with the same challenges right now, we’re all trying to do our best and I think we should be trying to learn from each other as much as possible.”

Lorraine also asked if the SNP leader was judging Mr Johnson for going on holiday amid the pandemic and the exam results fiasco, but Ms Sturgeon remained diplomatic.

She said: “We all have to make our own decisions, I’m not going to criticise other leaders, we’re all trying to navigate our way through a difficult situation.

“I’m very mindful Boris Johnson was in intensive care with COVID earlier in the year, he’s also got a very young baby, I’m not going to criticise the decision he takes about his individual life and holidays and time off.

“I’ll take my decisions – some people might think they’re right and some people might think they’re wrong.

“My place, literally, is every day here in the HQ of the Scottish government… that’s the choice I make at this time. others will make their own decisions.”

Explaining her decision to implement face masks being worn in schools in Scotland, Ms Sturgeon added: “I hope it will make a difference in helping to minimise the risk of transmission.

“We’re very clear, face coverings are not a substitute for all the other things we think it’s important to do – good hand hygiene, cleaning hard surfaces after you touch them and where you can, physically distance from other households.

“We know because the way the virus transmits – it reduces the chance of transmitting to other people.”
