Lorraine Kelly sparked fury with viewers of her daily show Lorraine when she lashed out at Prince William.

The TV presenter took a swipe at William after playing a clip where he criticised actor William Shatner's trip to space.

In the BBC News video, the Duke of Cambridge criticised the decision to send Star Trek star William, 92, into Space on Wednesday.

He admitted to feeling that the trip was frivolous when global efforts should be focused on saving planet Earth, instead of just looking for a new place to settle.

He said: "We need some of the world's greatest brains and minds fixed on trying to repair this planet, not trying to find the next place to go and live."

However, Lorraine, 61, didn't hold black as she blasted William for his stance and told him he was "wrong".

But viewers of her show didn't share the Scottish host's opinion – and took to Twitter to make their feelings very clear.

One wrote: "Absolute idiocy about space travel vs climate change on #Lorraine. Addressing the climate emergency & blasting tonnes of fossil fuel so people can look at the wide shot of a planet they're actively destroying are scientifically incompatible. Basic fact. Prince William = right."

Another added: "Lorraine on ITV arguing against Prince William. Yes, space has been something we have learned from but, William Shatner went for a joy ride. It's just wrong."

A third continued: "Lorraine disagreeing with Prince William about space travel, has she seen the state of this planet?"

The scathing viewers didn't hold back as they continued to bash Lorraine for her ill-informed stance.

One posted: "Lorraine talking rubbish, poor person being told what vehicles they can't drive, yet the rich play with space travel."

Another chipped in: "Oh well at least that’s #lorraine kissing goodbye to any hope of a damehood."

And a third wrote: "Lorraine will be praising someone saving the planet in the next breath."

But not everyone disagreed with Lorraine – with one Twitter user pointing out that Prince William uses private jets which are also hugely damaging to the Earth.

They posted: "Does make me laugh you've got Prince Charles and William talking about climate change and when Kate and William take private jets hardly a sound from the UK media. Let Harry and Meghan do exactly the same it's splash over the British media or trending on Twitter."
