Lorraine: I hail Gemma.

Byline: John Kelly

TELLY presenter Lorraine Kelly yesterday denied trying to humiliate film star Gemma Arterton over her weight.

The ITV morning host was slammed on social media for praising The Girl With All The Gifts actress's success "despite being a normal size."

Lorraine, 56, said: "I hadn't counted on a handful of permanently outraged twitterati who sit quivering with mock indignation.

"In my case there is a serious side lost amid the hoo-ha.

"Young actresses in Hollywood are under enormous pressue to look impossibly thin.

"If they refuse, there are legions of wannabees who will take their place.

"That's why we need actresses like Gemma."
