KAY Burley is currently trending on Twitter over her coverage of the Olympics.

The Sky News reader has caused offence when interviewing a Paralymic hopeful, referring to the ‘main Olympics’ and she also sparked criticism when speaking to Americans who had come down to London for the games.

Twitter comments include; “Kay Burley on sparkling form this afternoon. To Olympic torch carrier: William and Kate not doing it so “people like you” could” and “Kay Burley interviewing a family wearing TEAM USA t-shirts: “And where are you from?”. Amazing. “

Meanwhile the former Beech Hill resident has been forced to deny she is romantically involved with a man almost 20 years her senior.

Rumours were flying that she was in a relationship with Irvine Sellar, 69, the developer responsible for the London skyscraper, but a spokesman ridiculed the idea.
