Lorraine Kelly has been mocked for looking like Coronation Street's Dierdre Barlow in a photo from the 1980s.

The audience bursts into laughter at the pic, which shows Lorraine looking totally different in a massive pair of glasses, printed shirt and short hair-do.

Lorraine tells Big Narstie and the other guests: "I'm so sorry about that... that is an embarrassment."

The host then asks: "What's the woman called from Coronation Street?

It's horrible, they take her to task over some of her previous glamorous looks.

Lorraine, mortified, replies: "Deirdre Barlow... I must have had no friends to say to me 'You cannot go out like that'."

The clip from tonight's The Big Narstie Show was aired today on Lorraine, which is currently hosted by Christine Lampard as Lorraine takes a break for Easter.

Showbiz correspondent Dan Wootton, who was on with Christine, said: "It's horrible, they take her to task over some of her previous glamorous looks."

He argued that her get-up in the throwback snap was representative of the "height of glamour at the time".

Christine, still laughing, agreed with him and said Big Narstie just "needs to chill" and leave Lorraine alone.

It seems viewers love having Christine, who is married to former professional footballer Frank Lampard, presenting on Lorraine.

Earlier this week, she shared a snap of her outfit for the show on Instagram and fans rushed to the comments to implore her to stay on as a permanent host.

It follow reports of Lorraine stepping up her feud with newly separated Love Island couple Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham.

The Scottish presenter gave her assessment of the failed relationship, despite admitting she didn't watch Love Island and see their romance blossom.

Her coverage of the split got a reaction from the Dyer clan, with Dani's nan Christine urging fans to boycott Lorraine's show.
