Lorraine Kelly has excited fans after sharing a rare snap of her dancing.
The talk show presenter took to her Instagram page to share a video of her taking part in a dance routine exercise class taught by Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Luba Mushtuk.
‘Just a normal day being taught the jive with @lubamushtuk from @bbcstrictly during a brilliant time with @jasonvale,’ wrote Lorraine alongside the lively video.
‘I’m the one at the front in the grey hoodie mostly out of step! Brilliant fun. #friends #fun #love #sun #laughter #juicyretreat’.
And fans were loving the TV presenter’s dance skills, praising her for doing so well in the routine and encouraging her to carry on the hobby.
‘Doesn't matter if you're out of step, I usually am,’ wrote one fan, ‘it's that you got the exercise & enjoyed it too & looked fab like you were having a ball so I'm really glad to see you having such a great time! 👍’.

Others commented, ‘Brilliant stuff 👏👏’, ‘You go girl xxx you're doing grand xxx’, ‘This is so fab xxx’, ‘😂 brilliant! What a treat to have a lesson with such a pro!!’ and ‘Well done you x Your an inspiration x’.

‘Born to dance I’d say!’ wrote one fan. ‘Definitely @lorrainekellysmith for Strictly 👏💫❤️😘💃 ..... Keeeeeeep dancing! X’.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home—so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a Rioja- and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she stalked the royals via breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a good slathering of SPF and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines. Being a product specialist on a brand for bold women (and living the single life) means that Aleesha also knows a thing or two about the must-buy sex toys, so she relishes in unleashing her inner Carrie Bradshaw on our sex & relationships pages.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group.
