Lorraine has been blasted for her interview with singer and songwriter James Newman, the UK's entrant to the annual Eurovision Song Contest, with viewers calling her "two-faced."

On Saturday, the 31 year old came last at the contest as he failed to score any points from neither the judges or public votes for his song Embers.

And on Monday morning's instalment of her ITV daytime talk show, Lorraine didn't speak too highly of James' performance.

However, on Wednesday morning, that quickly changed when she gushed over James, who insisted he had "one of the best nights of his life" and would do the experience all over again.

The singer said: "No regrets. It was one of the best nights of my life!

"I sang in front of millions of people and got to work with talented people."

Lorraine praised James' song Embers as well as his reaction upon learning he had come in last place at the contest, which Italy eventually won.

She also asked him what it would take for the United Kingdom to fare better at the annual singing event next year.

"I just think we need to keep trying," James said. "We just need to keep putting out the best in British and show Europe that we care about Eurovision."

Lorraine's interview with James was a far cry from Monday when she branded his performance "rubbish" and also labelled the public "too stupid" to pick a suitable Eurovision representative.

Others were quick to slam Lorraine on her shift in attitude towards James.

"Wait, didn't #lorraine gush over the German song and slate James Newman on Monday?" one quizzed on Twitter.

Another added: "Just listened to #Lorraine gushing away to James Newman, after saying his song wasn't very good the other day. So two faced!"

A third added: "Didn't #Lorraine say James' song and performance were sh**? And now she's interviewing him like she never said it."
