Richard explained that he has a statue of Barbra Streisand's face in his garden.

Richard asked: "I've heard you have a thing for Hugh Jackman, is that true? Do you have a Hugh Jackman statue in your garden?"

What did Lorraine say?

Lorraine said: "I've not got a Hugh Jackman statue in my garden but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't.

"I'm actually inspired by you. I mean, who doesn't love Hugh Jackman? It's the law, you have to!"
