Singer Macy Gray left Lorraine viewers bemused as she claimed to be a vampire who runs out of blood. The I Try hitmaker, 51, had a rather unusual interview with host Lorraine Kelly where she also admitted to getting the urge to bite people. ‘I’m a vampire, I have a low blood count, every two or three years I have to get blood,’ she told Lorraine when asked about her recent hospitalisation. ‘I just want to bite people! But that’s illegal,’ she added. Macy was on the show ahead of her appearance at WOMAD festival.

Elsewhere in the interview, Macy bemoaned the pressures of fame because ‘suddenly everything you do and say is, you know, people write it down or they remember, you know what I mean’. ‘It’s a lot of pressure.’

Macy’s appearance prompted concern from viewers who flocked to Twitter to comment on the interview.
