Lorraine Kelly apologized to comedian Eddie Izzard for mistreating her during an interview on the show on Thursday.
Eddie accepted Lorraine’s apology kindly, saying that she generally doesn’t mind too much, but prefers her / her pronouns for presenting herself as a woman like she was on the show.
Lorraine and Eddie discussed Eddie’s incredible feat of running 31 marathons and 31 stand-up shows in as many days.
Lorraine said: “You were on the news just before Christmas and now you wanted to be known as ‘she’. So I can apologize to you if I get this wrong.
Eddie replied, “Let me tell you, I’m just asking, and I’ve been traveling for 35 years, 1985, a lot of people support me.
“I was asked and thought, ‘Well, I would love to be her because I was in girl mode.
“There is a request, but it is never a request or an insistence, and some people twist that and some people worry about it.
“It’s like people are saying,” Are you serious about being trans because we haven’t known it in 35 years? “
“If people have a problem just call me Eddie, it’s not a big deal to me, I’m gender specific, I do all of my dramatic roles in boy mode.
“When people are angry, I try to tell the truth at a time when lies are used as a tool of politics. “
She added, “I am trying to tell what is actually going on and we are getting closer and closer to the question of what is genetic in transgender and what will help humanity.
“This century, I think, is humankind’s coming of age, it will be either our first or our last century. We’ll either make it a fair world for everyone or we won’t make it. “
“It’s live and let live, when someone calls me ‘them’ or ‘they’ I feel a wonderful feeling.
“But if they go ‘he’ or just call me ‘Eddie’ or ‘buddy’ or ‘porridge’ – porridge is fine – I want everyone to back off.
“We are all girls as fetus, as some of us then have coded boys . . . Stop being so obsessed with it, back off, we are all human and we need to make humanity work. ”
When asked about Donald Trump amid the recent unrest in the capital, Eddie said, “What Donald Trump is doing seems to be destroying humanity, he has lied and lied so many times that you can’t keep up.
“If lies are allowed to be a tool of politics, then humanity dies. That was yesterday and he’s a fake president. This is how he will be known in history.
Eddie also spoke about her political ambitions, saying, “I would have stood in the last election, I couldn’t get a seat for some reason . . . Politics is politics.
“I’m a Labor Party member, so I’m fighting for it. If a post-election seat shows up and it fits well, I would fight for it and if not, then in the next election . . .
“You know me, I am so and so relentless and I will continue until I come to Parliament as a Member. “
