Lorraine Kelly, 60, was left over the moon after she was dubbed one of Joe Lycett’s “Dreamgirls” in the latest episode of The Great British Sewing Bee. The comedian gushed over the queen of daytime TV and she was ecstatic after the TV mention was pointed out to her on social media.
If you’re interested, my dream girls are Ruth Langsford, Loraine Kelly and wee Jimmy Krankie
During the BBC show, which aired on Wednesday 2 June, Joe and judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young introduced the final challenge, Made to Measure.
In order to secure a place in the semi-finals, the sewers were required to make a Dreamgirls inspired garment, focused on the disco era.
After discussing what the task would entail, Joe added a little anecdote of his own at the end.
“If you’re interested, my dream girls are Ruth Langsford, Loraine Kelly and wee Jimmy Krankie [1980s Scottish comedy duo],” he grinned as the sewers giggled.
Following the scene, a viewer decided to congratulate the Lorraine on her show shout-out.
Taking to Twitter, they penned: “@reallorraine You just got a mention on #greatbritishsewingbee.
“Joe said you were his dream girl @joelycett. Think you have that sewn up Lorraine!”
The presenter beamed as she replied: “OMG beyond chuffed!”
But the BBC show isn’t the only new programme Lorraine has made a splash on.
Celebrity Gogglebox is set to return this Friday 4 June, with a star-studded line-up that boasts the likes of The Masked Dancer’s Mo Gilligan, Love Island’s Laura Whitmore and Iain Stirling, former EastEnders actor Martin Kemp, and more.
Ahead of the reality show’s new episodes, Channel 4 took to social media to confirm that the telly star and her daughter Rosie will also be taking part, too.
“So looking forward to this – @Rosiekellysmith and I had such a laugh,” Lorraine added, sharing the tweet from her account.
“Ruby [their dog] was an angel!”
Elsewhere, she shared her shock that the BBC have decided to cancel Holby City after 23 years on-air.
The medical show is set to finish in March next year, and Lorraine was saddened by the loss that will be felt by all its loyal viewers, including herself.
A tweet by the official programme’s Twitter account read: “We’re very sorry to bring you the sad news that Holby City will come to an end in March next year, after 23 amazing years.
“We are so very grateful to all of Holby’s wonderful cast, crew, writers, producers – and to our millions of loyal viewers and fans for being part of our show.”
Lorraine replied: “Oh no!! This is very sad. I’m a big fan of @BBCHolbyCity.”
Fans rushed to the comments section to share with her a petition to sign in order to keep the show going.
