The presenter said she found it to be “seductive” while speaking on her ITV show today in the wake of the Ant and Dec star’s revelation that he “needs help” with drink and drugs.
During a segment about the 41-year-old TV favourite, the 57-year-old described her time on it as “horrible” before wishing him all the best.
Lorraine commented: “You mention Tramadol, you remember when I had my really bad accident, I was on Tramadol and it is seductive.”
The mother-of-one continued: “I actually came off it before… I actually wanted the pain… honestly, it makes everything fantastic.
“Your head is full of cotton wool. It’s horrible and it’s not real. It’s a horrible thing, but it works.”
Going on to describe the duo as “such private people”, Lorraine added: “You never see them at events, unless they’re picking up awards.
“If depression can happen it to him, it can happen to anybody and we have to respect that.”
Meanwhile, Lorraine’s candid remarks come after Ant said he was going to rehab for at least two months, saying he was “truly sorry” to fans.
Piers Morgan earlier sent a heartfelt message to him on Good Morning Britain: “He’s a great guy, one of the nicest people you’d meet and his wife Lisa does my make-up on Life Stories.
“They’re lovely people and obviously they’re going through a very tough time and I wish them both the very best.”
