After being asked how it feels to be the queen of daytime chat, Lorraine Kelly develops a fit of the giggles.
“Don’t use the word ‘chat’,” she laughs. “It makes me think of Alan Partridge!”
Lorraine’s bubbly personality has helped make her one of the UK’s best-loved TV stars, though she is modest about her success in a notoriously fickle business: “I’m just someone who is awfully lucky, doing a job that I love.”
Lorraine has been grilling celebrities and politicians for almost three decades, and has attracted no end of red-blooded admirers in the process, including JLS star Marvin Humes, who labelled her a cougar.
In this show, she’s responds to assorted personal questions, such as how she feels about being seen as a sex symbol.
She also talks about how she was sacked from GMTV just weeks after giving birth to her daughter; discusses her marriage to cameraman Steve Smith, and the regret that they weren’t able to have more children.
