Daily Star TV gives you all the latest interviews and spoilers and Ed Gleave will send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Lorraine Kelly was left red-faced after she expressed her desire for famous tennis player Martina Navratilova on Good Morning Britain.

The ITV breakfast show welcomed Martina on Monday's programme to discuss fellow tennis star Novak Djokovic's vaccine controversies.

Before Martina entered the virtual studio, GMB hosts Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid cut to Lorraine in her TV studio where she revealed the crush she had on Martina.

The Scottish chat show host explained how she had had the biggest crush on her for years, which I'm A Celeb star Martina seemingly heard behind the scenes.

Susanna introduced the host, and said: "Lorraine is here at 9, good morning to you."

Lorraine said: "It's all going on, what is happening? I'm so excited you have Martina on, I have had the biggest crush on that woman for 40 years probably. So, I'm going to be riveted in that interview, riveted I am."

When Martina entered the studio chat via a video link she stopped the conversation about Djokovic to kindly acknowledge Lorraine's remarks.

However, the tennis star thanked the bubbly TV star but explained how she was married.

Richard introduced Martina and said: "Well, let's try and draw breath with the 18 times Grand Slam winner Martina Navratilova. What do you make of this? It's hard to keep up, isn't it? If it's true he has been re-arrested…"

Martina then cheekily replied: "First, I have to say hello to Lorraine, where have you been? I mean really, I am in my pyjamas but I am also married."

Martina is in fact married to The Real Housewives of Miami Julia Lemigova, after tying the knot in 2014.

Both TV studios then erupted in laughter as Lorraine gushed over Martina's remarks.

Viewers of the show then flocked to social media to share their thoughts, with one saying: "Forget the news, Martina Navratilova flirting with Lorraine Kelly is the content we all need. #GMB"

A second added: "Not Martina Navratilova and Lorraine Kelly being fruity on GMB"

While a third wrote: "@reallorraine OMG!,im so Jealous, Martina actually spoke to you, I’ve also had a crush for yrs, you lucky lady X"

To which Lorraine replied on Twitter: "What a way to start a Monday Jackie!! @Martina is one of my all time heroes – incredible athlete and a really good woman xx"
