As she moved on to the discussion of Black Lives Matter, the presenter said: “I’m getting emotional already. I’m a mother to a 15-year-old black boy so when I saw that image of George Floyd, I saw my brothers, I saw my fathers, I saw my son.

“Let’s be honest, this has been going on forever, my whole life, my mum’s life, my father’s life, everybody’s life.”
