Lorraine Kelly is taking a well deserved break to enjoy her summer, which means ITV’s Lorraine needs a new host – and stepping up to the job is none other than Christine Lampard!
Christine will be presenting the Lorraine Kelly Show while Lorraine is away for three weeks, beginning 31 July.
Yesterday Christine interviewed Bradley Walsh, Good Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins and Love Island contestants Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt.
This isn’t the first time Christine has stepped in to cover Lorraine, as she hosted the show back in Easter.
Speaking about her short term post Christine says, “I’m really excited to be back in the hot seat whilst Lorraine is off on her holidays. I’ll do my best to fill her shoes for a few weeks and have some fun along the way too.”
To mark the occasion she shared a snap of her first day on Instagram. It was captioned: “Filling in for the gorgeous @lorrainekellysmith whilst she’s off on her hols! Today’s outfit, top @winserlondon skirt @relatedapparel and shoes @gianvitorossi Thank you@cilerpeksah_hairstylist@helenhandmakeup and @angiesmithstyle”.
But while the host might have changed, the content of the Lorraine show will stay very much the same. You can still expect all the latest overnight showbiz news from Ross King in LA, health news from Dr Hilary and exciting interviews with stars like the new Dr Who, Jodie Whittaker.
So far Christine has received a positive response with several posts on social media quickly showing their supoort. One said: “Loving you on Lorraine. It’s a shame you’re not on permanent.”
Another fan wrote on Instagram:”You’re a breath of fresh air in the mornings & your gorgeous smile is infectious! I love it when you’re on #lorraine or #loosewomen x”.
For the final two weeks of August there will be no Lorraine Kelly show as Good Morning Britain will have an extended slot to 9.30am. You’ll have to wait until Monday 4 September for Lorraine to return to screens with its regular host.
Until then, we’re sure Christine will keep us entertained and well informed!
