At the end of the show, fashion expert Mark Hayes told Lorraine: “There’s just one final surprise Lorraine.

“We’ve heard from lots of people this morning but there are two more that have something to say about you.”

The video from Lorraine’s parents then popped up on screen as the Scottish presenter gasped.

She exclaimed: “Oh my God! I can’t believe you got my mum and dad.”

Her mum said in the footage: “She’s really clever and she’s done really well. We think the world of her but we don’t say it as often as we should say it.”

Lorraine was seen fanning herself as her mum continued: “We’re not lovey doveys but she knows we love her and we’re very proud of her.”

The presenter’s dad added: “She enjoys it very much and I hope she continues for a while now.”

Her mum said: “Everybody likes looking at her. I like looking at her anyway and I do watch her.”

As the camera returned to the studio, Lorraine was seen wiping away tears as she said: “I can’t believe you got my mum and dad to do that!

“My dad never does anything and I love them so much because they’re very Scottish, very down to Earth but oh for goodness’ sake. Oh my gosh.”

“Oh, there is!”
