Lorraine Kelly confirms ITV show break as Strictly’s Ranvir Singh steps in

Lorraine Kelly has announced that she will be taking a break from her ITV show next week.

The 61-year-old broadcaster was back on our screens on Friday morning to present her popular talk show.

During the latest edition of the programme, Lorraine revealed that she will not be back on our screens as usual next week.

It was confirmed earlier this week that Good Morning Britain beauty turned Strictly Come Dancing star Ranvir Singh will fill in for Lorraine while she takes some time off next week.

However, Lorraine fans won't have to wait long to see the famous host back on their screens as her chat show is set to air on Christmas Day for the first-time ever.

The television legend will serve up an hour of heart-warming fun from 9am onwards on Friday, December 25.

Lorraine will be letting viewers into the secrets of her festive period and sharing joy and laughter with some special guests.

Before Lorraine spreads some Christmas cheer, Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid will relive the moments created by the real stars of 2020 on Good Morning Britain from 6AM.

The dynamic duo will celebrate Covid heroes up and down the country, from the likes of Captain Sir Tom to the incredible staff of the NHS who saved so many lives.

Then at 10am, Phillip Schofield, 57, and Holly Willoughby, 39, will be hosting a special episode of This Morning on Christmas Day.

The news was revealed by the channel's boss Kevin Lygo as he revealed an action-packed Christmas line-up in a special video earlier this month.

He explained: 'In a festive first we'll be showing one-off specials of our hit daytime shows on Christmas Day itself – Good Morning Britain, Lorraine and This Morning.

ITV will broadcast a host of Christmas specials this December including Celebrity Juice, The Chase, Tenable, The Savoy At Christmas and Gordon, Gino and Fred.

The channel is airing the popular programmes as it hopes to bag the festive ratings crown in its ongoing battle against the BBC.

Lorraine airs weekdays on ITV at 9an
