Lorraine Kelly has been branded inappropriate after making a comment to Jason Isaacs about a charity run.

At the end of his interview about his new movie Hotel Mumbai, the Harry Potter star made sure to mention a charity run hes set to take part in for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

However, fans were a bit baffled by the hosts reaction, after she asked if hed be wearing shorts.

When Jason said he would be, she went on to say: Im there. Im there. Im there. Ill be running behind you for the view.

Viewers were shocked by the comment, with one writing: ….Imagine if a male presenter said to a female guest that he would do the run if she wore shorts so he could jog behind…oh Lorraine.

Did #lorraine just say to Jason Isaccs [sic] that she would attend an event if he wore shorts? And she would be behind him enjoying the view? Double standards? another added.

Okaaaay. So if a male presenter says to a woman hed be running behind her for the view whilst wearing shorts, thatd be ok too? #lorraine, one more viewer asked.

They sat in silence like most people do at the end…its quite violent, the 56-year-old, who recently backed the campaign to save Netflix show The OA, said on Lorraine. My kids turned to me and said thats the best film youve ever done, dad.

The star went on to reveal that the families involved in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, which the movie is based on, asked for the violence not to be sugarcoated, as he explained that the movie is about the quiet heroism shown by the staff and visitors at the Taj Hotel during the attacks.
