Good Morning Britain suffers glitch and shows a picture of Fearne Cotton instead of Trisha Goddard


Good Morning Britain suffered a technical glitch on Monday morning when Lorraine Kelly teased a chat with Trisha Goddard.

Explaining that Trisha was due to appear on the show to speak about her mother’s link to the Windrush Generation, Lorraine said: ‘Windrush day today… Trisha Goddard is going to be sharing memories of her mum.’

As she did, a photo of radio presenter Fearne Cotton flashed up instead.

Yet Lorraine didn’t seem to notice at first, adding: ‘Her mum Agnes came over on the Windrush boat in the early 50s and she worked for the NHS, so we’re going to talk to Trisha about that.’

Producers swiftly replaced the snap of Fearne with one of Trisha to rectify the error. 

Clearly realising what had happened, she swifly moved on to talk about Fearne, who was indeed also due to appear.

‘And she just popped up there, Your Favourite 90s Song, Fearne Cotton’s new radio show, all about the 90s…’

When Trisha appeared later in the show, she spoke about the Windrush Generation in a frank chat with Lorraine as Monday celebrates the third Windrush Day, marking the 72nd anniversary of the SS Empire arriving at Tilbury Docks in Essex carrying the first Caribbean migrants. 

By the end of the chat, Trisha had broken down in tears as she spoke about her mum Agnes and the recent racist abuse she had been suffering.

Talking about Agnes, a nurse, who came to Britain at the age of 26, she said: ‘There’s been a lot of talk of systemic racism… I don’t believe we teach history in the way we should.

‘A very important part of Britain’s history, is all of those people from all over the Commonwealth… who answered the call to come to Britain. And remember in those days, Lorraine, it was something like a six week journey.’

She explained a lot of people knew they would not be seeing parents again and even sending letters was difficult.

Trisha continued: ‘They gave up their lives for a new life, but to help Britain. This whole Windrush scandal, after you’ve done that is just such a kick in the teeth.’

Talking of officials telling people who had been living in the UK for more than 50 years to ‘go back to their own country’, echoed things she had heard said many times in the past.

Becoming emotional, she added: ‘I miss her, just talking about her makes me very emotional. In some ways, I’m glad she’s not here to see, I would be telling her about some of the racist abuse I’ve been getting.

Also on the show: Presenter Fearne spoke about how lockdown had been 'intense' and 'really busy' with low days as well as more positive days, adding 'it's been a mixed bag of emotions'

She said: 'It's been really hectic I'm not going to lie, like a lot of people I've been balancing work and family life. I'm home-schooling and even saying the word makes my toes curl'

‘I remember when I was a little girl, I used to get talcum powder and mix it with water and put it on my face and pretend to be white, I’m sorry Lorraine…’

She went on to explain when her mum arrived in Britain, she was met by signs saying ‘No Blacks’ and finding accommodation was difficult.

Trisha said: ‘Seeing this scandal would have broken their spirit after years of sacrifice for this country.’

The presenter said Commonwealth history had to be taught in schools to educate all children.

‘I’ve got four kids here at the moment, two kids and two step-kids and everyone is doing everything at different times… we’re eating at different times… I’ve been doing this festival, I’ve got my podcast and I’ve just finished another book, I’m not sure why I thought I could do all of this…

‘There have been good days where I think I’m nailing it and other days where I think I’m drowning in it… it’s been a mixed bag of emotions but that’s OK I think it would be weird to feel like everything is normal right now.’

Good Morning Britain with Lorraine Kelly airs weekdays from 9AM on ITV.
