Lorraine Kelly got rather emotional during today’s episode of Good Morning Britain.
The Scottish chat show host has been teaming up with GMB in light of the coronavirus crisis in place of her usual spot on her self-titled programme.
Today, Lorraine and Doctor Hilary Jones chatted to her daughter, Rosie, 25, live from Singapore where she lives.
As Rosie appeared on the programme via video link to chat about the global Covid-19 pandemic, Lorraine could be seen getting teary.
When it was time to end the call and say goodbye to her daughter, the mum-of-one visibly welled up, saying, “It’s so good to talk to you. It’s been lovely to see your wee face! I do miss you. Stay safe love.”
Having witnessed the emotional moment, viewers took to social media to commend Lorraine on handling the tough time so well.
‘What a fantastic journalist you are. So so brave interviewing Rosie at this difficult time. I’m in tears here for you, what a lovely daughter you have,’ wrote one.
‘Watching @lorraine and seeing her attempting to keep her crying under control while speaking to her daughter over video call is heartbreaking, daughter is in a different country and lorraine is worried like any mother would be, pulled at a few heart strings of mine,’ penned a second.
‘Aww @reallorraine is an absolute champ!! A million miles from her daughter in Singapore and managing to do an interview with her without getting too upset. I’d be crying my eyes out,’ a third concerned viewer agreed.
Lorraine recently opened up about her close relationship with Rosie when she appeared on Giovanna Fletcher’s Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast.
“She’s never really caused me any angst..
“It’s a different relationship, it’s a totally different relationship and I don’t think for a nano second she tells me everything. I never told my mum everything. But that’s what your friends are for.
“But we do have a really close relationship. She is far more grown up than me and I got to her for advice.”
