Plenty of viewers will be over the moon at the news that Lorraine will be returning soon.

Some fans of the Scottish TV presenter took to Twitter to reveal earlier this week that they aren’t fans of her replacement.

“Had to switch channels. That horrendous laugh of Carol Vorderman was too much to bear. It’s so fake,” complained one.

“Lasted 4 minutes of #lorraine this morning,” said a second, before pleading: “Get well soon Lorraine.”

A third tweeted: “Lorraine is even more unbearable now that Carol is presenting it.”

“Yes it is, I’d prefer Ranvir Singh,” ranted a fourth. 

However, thankfully for Carol not everyone felt the same.

Another tweeted: “Professional, warm, personable, glam. She should be doing more high-profile gigs these days.”
