Lorraine Kelly replaced by Cat Deeley as star steps back from hosting role on ITV show


Lorraine, 61, has been the host of her very own chat show for over 25 years and has been a pinnacle of strength for viewers during the pandemic. Regular fans of the ITV chat show know the Scottish television veteran usually takes breaks from the programme to coincide with the holidays on the academic calendar. However, a brand-new star will be filling in for the host as she enjoys some time away from the screen as former SM:TV presenter Cat, 44, will be taking hold of the reins.

With the Easter break beginning next week, Cat will be sat in the hot seat as she interviews a number of famous faces.

Speaking about replacing Lorraine, the 44-year-old said: “Lorraine has kindly entrusted me with her show while she has a break over Easter.

“I’m so happy to be back at ITV for the coming week and looking forward to meeting some people I’ve wanted to ­interview for some time and also welcoming some old friends on air.”

Editor of the show Victoria Kennedy added: “Next week the lovely Cat Deeley will take to the helm of Lorraine, providing viewers at home with much-needed Easter enjoyment.

“As a huge fan of SMTV, I’m more than just a bit delighted. And of course, we look forward to welcoming Ranvir [Singh] back too. We’ve got a great lineup of Easter guests joining us,” she told Mirror Online.
