Lorraine is the early weekday morning, lifestyle and entertainment show for ITV, presented by Lorraine Kelly and others. ITV Breakfast produces Lorraine, which airs every weekday from 08:30 until 09:25, following Good Morning Britain. The programme replaced Kelly's previous show, GMTV with Lorraine.

Format[edit]

Each day the presenter gives an introduction into what's coming up on the show, before discussing the main stories from the morning's newspapers. Sometimes this is replaced by a showbiz update from Dan Wootton and a Los Angeles update from Ross King. The show's first guests tend to be interviewed next. The chef who is appearing that week then cooks their dish for the day. Throughout the show more guests are interviewed as well as regulars such as Mark Heyes and Dr. Hilary Jones appear with fashion and health slots respectively. The competition that runs on Good Morning Britain also appears throughout the show.

The programme is sponsored by home design company Hillarys. Previous sponsors have included Lea and Perrins, Weetabix, Garnier, Actimel, Spar, Wink Bingo, Plenty and Jergens Naturals.[1]

Launch[edit]

The first edition of Lorraine aired on Monday 6 September 2010. A preview on Daybreak revealed the new studio look as spacious and coloured in a variety of pastel hues and decorative motifs dominated by pink. The sofa for the presenter and guests was pink and arranged in a semicircle around a central internally lit coffee table similar to that used for Daybreak. Lorraine's first guest was actress Gemma Arterton. The first programme also featured an interview with Sky News reporter Sarah Parish[2] and a recipe by TV chef James Tanner while Celia Walden[3] and Kevin Maguire[4] reviewed the morning's newspapers.
