The presenter posted a message on Twitter suggesting she was unimpressed after Prime Minister Boris Johnson apologised for attending a party in the Downing Street garden during the first coronavirus lockdown.
She tweeted: “Still irked by this: ‘even if [the party] could be said technically to fall within the guidance, there would be millions of people who would not see it that way.’
“He doesn’t think HE is in the wrong. He thinks WE are. We - the public. Wrong to see it as a breach of the law.”

The presenter is the latest TV star to speak out about the scandal.
And Loose Women’s Charlene White broke down in tears as she discussed how she had to sit alone at her aunt’s funeral during the pandemic because she was following the rules, while there was a party at Downing Street.
She said on the ITV show: “I stood by the graveside as gravediggers were filling that grave and watching my cousin in floods of tears and not being able to hug her because we were following the rules. Because we didn't know what else to do."
The 41-year-old said that she and her family “were following the rules with the understanding that those in charge were doing the same thing”.
“And then you have a situation like this come up and it's like, well, should I have just hugged me cousin?” she asked. “If we weren't all following the rules, should I have just hugged her?"
