Lorraine viewers left baffled as John Barrowman puts on a ‘fake’ Scottish accent

Viewers tuning in to Lorraine on Monday morning were shocked when they heard John Barrowman speaking.

The 53-year-old actor appeared via video link from his home in Palm Springs, California, to chat to Lorraine Kelly about his pal Ruthie Henshall being evicted from I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

But fans of the ITV show were in hysterics as they heard John speaking in a Scottish accent.

Taking to Twitter, people were quick to comment on his voice and were feeling rather confused.

"John Barrowman talking in a fake Scottish accent and #lorraine not noticing," one person tweeted.

Another wrote: "Why is he putting on a Scottish accent when most of the time he puts on an American one. #lorraine."

A third viewer added: "I know he's Scottish really but what's the fake American accent about then?! #FAAAABULOUS #Lorraine."

A fourth person asked: "Why has @JohnBarrowman changed back to a Scottish accent #lorraine."

And a fifth tweeted: "Dying at him putting on a Scottish accent #lorraine."

The Doctor Who actor was born in Glasgow in 1967, and lived in Scotland for the first eight years of his life.

In 1975, John's father's company relocated the family to the United States, where his father managed the Caterpillar tractor factory in Aurora, Illinois.

His Scottish accent didn't go unnoticed by Lorraine though, as she told Dr Hilary Jones: "Don’t you just love how he goes Scottish when he speaks to me, he’s just lovely."

The 61-year-old TV presenter is celebrating her birthday today and was serenaded by John, before being presented with a George Clooney cake by Dr Hilary.

He also read out a message which was allegedly from the Hollywood actor, and also gave her a T-shirt with her and George on it.

Lorraine airs weekdays on ITV at 9am
