Lorraine Kelly’s Covid-19 battle

Last week, Lorraine contracted Covid, meaning she couldn’t host her daytime show on ITV.

Former Countdown star Carol Vorderman stepped in to fill the breach – and received mixed reviews from viewers.

Today, after a week away, Lorraine returned to host her show. Her return was previewed by Ranvir Singh on Good Morning Britain today.

“I’m fine, I’m absolutely fine. It was the dreaded Covid,” Lorraine told viewers.

When asked by Ranvir whether she’d caught Covid from Wimbledon, Lorraine said she didn’t know.

“I actually don’t know what it was. It could have been someone standing in the line at the supermarket.”

‘Thank God for science!’

The 62-year-old then went on to express her gratitude for the vaccines.

“Thank God for science and the vaccine!” she said.

The worst headaches actually floored me, I couldn’t get up without feeling weird.

Later on, during her own show, Lorraine spoke to Dr. Amir Khan about her battle with Covid last week.

“It’s a nasty one. The dreaded Covid caught me,” she said.

“The worst headaches actually floored me, I couldn’t get up without feeling weird,” said the star, appearing to suggest it left her bed-bound.

She then continued, saying: “Thank goodness for the vaccine, and thank goodness you and for all your help, it’s just so nice to know I can ring you up.”

Elsewhere on the show, Lorraine’s appearance was mocked by some cruel viewers.

The star was wearing a colourful, floral patterned dress on today’s show which showed a bit of cleavage – and not everyone was impressed.

“Who suggested this dress? Fire them #Lorraine,” one viewer tweeted.

“Seriously #Lorraine put them away, I haven’t had my breakfast yet love!” a third said.

Not everyone was cruel about Lorraine’s look today though.

“Looking gorgeous. So glad you are well and back in your chair,” one viewer said.
