'GMTV' presenter Lorraine Kelly was so overcome with nerves when she got to meet George Michael, she came out in a rash
Lorraine Kelly came out in a rash when she had to interview George Michael.
The 'GMTV' presenter has been a huge fan of the 'Faith' singer for several years and admits she was overcome with nerves when he came onto the breakfast TV show.
She said: "Of course I get starstruck, it's part of doing the fantastic job I do.
"George Michael came in a couple of years ago and they said, 'Go and say hello to George' and I couldn't. I had a red rash on my chest and everything.
"Also Leonard Nimoy who played Mr. Spock in 'Star Trek'. He was the first crush I had when I was six."
Lorraine has met many celebrities over the years, but says Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney is her favourite.
She said: "It would be really hard to pick one but if forced, it would be George Clooney. Not just beautiful to look at, but a really lovely bloke and for the 20 minutes or so you're interviewing him, he makes you feel like the most important person in the world. He's utterly charming but he's not a phoney. And Will Smith is the same, he's adorable."
