The 62-year-old star was on from Bon Matin, Great Britain to Lorraine Kelly, earlier today talking about her mother, Agnes de la Fortune, who came to the UK as part of the Windrush generation.
Agnes unfortunately died in 2004, and Trisha broke down as she said Lorraine that part of him was “happy” with his mom was not there to see him being raced around the world.
Her audible cracking voice as she spoke, Trisha said, “I miss her, just talking about it makes me very emotional … But in some ways, I’m glad she isn’t there to see him. ”
The TV star then started to cry, to apologize to Lorraine as she explained: “racial slurs, I was doing … I remember when I was a little girl, I used to get talcum powder and mix it with water.
“I put it on my face and pretended to be white. “
Lorraine admitted that she found the interview “heartbreaking”, with Trisha fighting to tears for the rest of the conversation.
Emilie, who is a 30-year-old mother, Billie and 27-year-old Madison, recently revealed that her daughters were intimidated due to comedic Leigh Francis ‘identity theft on her Bo’ Selecta show between 2002 and 2004.
Leigh wore rubber masks to mock a crowd of celebrities, including other black stars like Craig David and Mel B.
Trisha contacted Leigh during the first broadcast, but felt that she was unable to speak publicly about it because she feared it would be a shame in her career.
However, Leigh apologized after angry Trisha, accused him of hypocrisy when he joined in the final month of Blackout Tuesday, a social media campaign for the Black Life of Matter.
Trisha said the Bo ’Selecta star – also known as Keith Lemon – took her concerns seriously and even talked about her daughter, hearing her experiences of being bullied because of her show.
However, Trisha revealed last week that the horrible comments and abuse went up as a result of a call to the TV star.

“The other thing is that people say ‘lighten up is a joke’, but if it portrays Vanessa Feltz, a Jew proud to present, with a big nose, or Gok Wan working in a Chinese takeout, they’re all obnoxious, and until very recently I didn’t know how intimidating my children were.
“Since Leigh apologized I have been subjected to even more violence.
“(People saying You ruined your career just because you can’t take a joke, and there have been threats.”
Leigh, 47, sent a private apology to Trisha last month, and in a touching Instagram video added to fans: “I didn’t know how offensive it was.
