ITV fans fume as Love Island star’s picture is shown during poignant tribute to Queen


ITV viewers were horrified when a photo of Love Island’s star was displayed during a touching tribute to Queen Elizabeth II.

GMB’s Ranvir Singh was stepping in for Lorraine Kelly on her morning show during the school holidays, and raised a cheeky glass of bubbly to the monarch for her Platinum Jubilee.

The Queen will be celebrating 70 years on her throne. However, it was Iain Stirling (Love Island commentator) who stole the show.

Ranvir was at the moment chatting with Paul Burrell, an ex-royal butler. “From us, a toast to Her Majesty, Paul.”

Paul continued: “God bless you, your Majesty, this is your time,”Ranvir said: “This is your time. Thank you for everything you’ve done, Your Majesty.”

The music of God Save the Queen was then heard on the studio’s speakers. However, a accompanying image of Iain Stirling appeared on-screen.

His image was quickly replaced with a photo of the Queen, captioned: “Happy Platinum Jubilee”As the National Anthem played,

Lorraine will be hosting a discussion with comedian Iain about series eight of ITV’s ITV Dating Show. This episode starts later in this month.

But Iain quickly flashed his picture on-screen

One eagle-eyed viewer spotted the snap and quickly tweeted it: “What was Iain Stirling from Love Island doing there?”

“Not interested in Love Island!”Another person moaned.

The incident occurred as fans lambasted Paul Burrell for using an RP accent “proper English”Telling viewers how the Queen taught him to speak ‘properly’.

Paul originally came from Derbyshire and used to have a wider accent.

Immediately, viewers took to Twitter to complain about this segment. One writing: “Paul Burrell saying the Queen taught him to speak ‘English’ because he had a broad Derbyshire accent. The regional dialects in England are older than ‘Queen’s English’!”

“The Queen taught Paul Burell how to speak ‘properly’ and not in his original northern accent!”Another replied with an shocked emoji

Lorraine is on ITV at 9am every weekday.
