Ulrika Jonsson red-faced as ‘willy protector’ spotted during Lorraine interview

Ulrika Jonsson was left red-faced during a recent interview with Lorraine Kelly after she forgot to take an embarrassing prop off the wall.

The 53-year-old TV star appeared on Lorraine to share her thoughts on male violence against women.

In an ‘ironic’ turn of events, after watching the interview back, Ulrika soon realised that her ‘African willy protector’ was clearly visible in the background as she tuned in to speak to the host from her living room.

Taking to Instagram to point out the embarrassing blunder, Ulrika told her followers that the unusual décor was traditionally worn as a covering by some men in native African tribes.

"It is with considerable irony that I realise I had an African willy protector in the background of my live on Lorraine this morning," she wrote.

The TV personality felt it was important to address the matter due to the fact her appearance on Lorraine was in line with the tragic murder of London resident Sarah Everard.

Ulrika discussed such matters as misogyny, harassment, and sexual violence throughout the interview, and urged men to ‘educate themselves’ on how to make women around them feel safe in society.

During the thought-provoking chat, the mum-of-two also hit back at Davina McCall who claimed that there was an obscene amount of ‘fearmongering’ spreading across social media since Sarah’s tragic death.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday, Davina penned: "Female abduction/murder is extremely rare.

"Yes, we should all be vigilant when out alone. But this level of fear-mongering isn’t healthy."

Sharing her thoughts on Davina’s controversial tweet, Ulrika said: “It's not fear mongering because this is happening.

“And to say that it's rare, is also incorrect. Domestic abuse is definitely not rare."

Lorraine continues tomorrow at 9am on ITV.
