‘Just a minute, Ranvir!’ Jacqui Smith silences GMB host in fiery foreign travel debate
On the final Good Morning Britain of the week, Ben Shephard and Ranvir Singh welcomed Jacqui Smith and political commentator Iain Dale onto the ITV show to go over the latest headlines. And with the news of a divisive traffic light system being put in place for foreign travel in a bid to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the guests were quick to weigh in with their thoughts. However, when Jacqui found herself being talked over by Ranvir during the discussion, she was quick to pull her up.
After a year of chaos for the travel industry, plans have been outlined for a traffic light system to rank the risk of Covid from countries, although the government is still yet to confirm whether foreign travel will be permitted from May 17.
However, both Iain and Jacqui were keen to make clear that even with the new guidelines being rolled out, this wouldn’t be a “free for all” for Britons to head on holiday.
