At 58, Lorraine Kelly is in the prime of her life. Having recently won herself a presenting slot on primetime BBC show, Wedding Day Winners, all whilst presenting her namesake ITV morning programme, it seems the popular TV star is busier than ever.
Add in the fact that she and her husband Steve are preparing to make the big move down from Dundee, Scotland, to Buckinghamshire, and it’s a wonder the presenter ever has a chance to sit down.
Lorraine has built up a hugely successful career over the years, fronting numerous TV programmes and joining forces with some of the biggest brands in the world.
And given her years of experience, Lorraine has revealed some sage advice that she’d offer her younger self, were she to get the chance.
So what would the TV star share with a younger Lorraine?
“Oh jeez, don’t worry so much, it’s all going to be fine. You’re going to find the bestest man in the world, you’re going to have a good life.”
But that’s not all. It seems there’s also some practical advice Lorraine would share with her younger self, and it’s a life motto we’d happily live by.
Speaking to the Mirror, she shared her belief that nothing should ever be kept “for best” – meaning you’re free to use all those lovely luxury items that you might not treat yourself to every day as much as you want.
She shared, “And don’t save anything for best. People have got nice perfume or underwear or scented candles for Christmas. Use them, don’t leave those gorgeous knickers at the back of the drawer and think ‘I’ll use them one day’ because you won’t.
“And use that blinkin’ perfume before it evaporates. Use it, use it, use it.”
We couldn’t agree more!
The host also confessed that turning 58 in November has brought with it a new sense of confidence, admitting that she’s less bothered than ever before about people’s opinions of her.
Lorraine said, “I don’t worry about daft things. I care less what people think of me, and that’s important these days when we’ve got social media. I wouldn’t like to be starting out in my job in TV now, you get hammered.”
