Lorraine Kelly Addresses On-Air Mishap, As Clip Of Ore Oduba Is Shown During Patrick Robinson Interview

'That wasn't you, I don't know why we showed him!'

Lorraine Kelly demonstrated the best way to deal with an on-air mishap during Wednesday’s (19 October) edition of her show, when a clip of Ore Oduba was unexpectedly shown during an interview with Patrick Robinson.

The former ‘Casualty’ star previously made it through to the semi-finals of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, and as the actor discussed his time on the show with Lorraine, a picture of him was flashed up on the screen.

However, this was then followed by a video of Ore Oduba, which Patrick acknowledged, awkwardly telling the host: “Here’s my man…

“I’ve watched the recent ‘Strictly’ and this jive was just out of this world.”

That was Ore we just showed,” Lorraine replied. “That wasn’t you, I don’t know why we showed him!”

In a statement issued to the Huffington Post UK, a show spokesperson explained the situation, stating: “Prior to the interview, Patrick Robinson had told the Lorraine team that Ore Oduba was his favourite to win ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ so a clip of Ore on the show was prepared to be shown during the interview.

“There was no suggestion that it was a clip of Patrick or that it was a case of mistaken identity.”

And obviously, a few eagle-eyed viewers spotted the mistake:

Patrick took part in ‘Strictly’ back in 2013, and was the last man standing in the competition, which was won by Abbey Clancy.

In the current series Danny Mac was the standout star however, Ore’s jive put him in the spotlight, and earned three 10s from the judges.
