Lorraine leaves Idris Elba in stitches with outrageous risqué remark

TV host Lorraine Kelly left Hollywood actor Idris Elba in a fit of giggles after accidentally making a risqué remark surrounding speculation of him starring in James Bond.

With rumours of the Luther star, 50, taking over from iconic actor Daniel Craig, 55, in the British action film, Lorraine claimed that she could in fact see him playing a villain – but made a suggestive slip up while explaining her reasons.

The TV presenter, who has a catalogue of celebrity interviews under her belt said: "I think you’d be an amazing baddie in James Bond. I was going to say that I can see you stroking a white pussy [cat] but I shouldn’t really say that because that’s naughty and rude!"

But taking it in his stride, Idris, who was scheduled to appear on her show to discuss his latest project Hijack, quipped: "I’ve got it in my head, the image. [It’s] interesting because the bad guys are just as iconic as the James Bond character."

He added: "And now I’m just excited about being in a meme with you for the rest of our lives, high five!"

The London born actor who got married to Sabrina in 2019, has an impressive list of Hollywood blockbusters to his name, including American Gangster.

But unlike previous roles, Idris is now playing a hero in his new series Hijack.

Responding to Lorraine dubbing his role as a "reluctant hero" the star replied: "I thought that was very attractive in the beginning, this isn’t a guy that can fight or is an action hero, this is a man that’s in a situation and he’s just trying to get home and he just sort of applies himself."

Her added: "He’s not afraid to tell everyone that he’s afraid and he’s a bit vulnerable in it."

Idris first shot to fame playing Stringer Bell in the hit US TV series The Wire where he played a drug lord. He then starred in the popular crime drama Luther, where he played the title role.

And Lorraine did not fail to ask him about the legendary police drama. Asking if viewers were likely to see more from the character he responded saying: "Yeah that’s the plan. Thankfully for ten years fans have really encouraged John Luther as a TV show and they came out for the movie. I love that character!

However, unlike Lorraine's lighthearted banter that please viewers, it wasn't that long ago that she was forced to defend herself against a viewer who claimed she "loved everyone".

Hitting back on social media the seasoned presenter said: "Well it would be a wee bit daft to have people on if you hated their work don’t you think?"
