Former Weakest Link star Anne Robinson appeared on ITV’s Lorraine this morning to discuss her new role on Countdown. The 76-year-old will be making her debut on the show later today. Anne, who has also appeared on Watchdog, wowed viewers in a dark red Victoria Beckham dress, tortoiseshell jewellery and glasses and a stylish bob haircut this morning.
Lorraine Kelly, 61, praised Anne for hosting such a popular TV show in her seventies and asked whether she has ever felt “pressure” to have plastic surgery.
“No, I had a facelift in 2004,” Anne said candidly.
Lorraine laughed and said: “Nobody says that. I love that you say that.”
To which Anne responded: “I know but otherwise, people at home are thinking ‘why does she look like that?’
“It seems very unfair. Only because I had been doing Watchdog and there was a point where it was live.
“You couldn’t get the lighting to me when I walked over to the right-hand side at the end.
“I’d go home and play it back and I’d think ‘why is my mother saying thank you for watching Watchdog and goodnight’.
“I mean Lorraine, if you get your ears pierced how is it any different?”

Anne will be taking over from Nick Hewer on Countdown, who hosted the show for 10 years.
She told The Sun that she knows some viewers may be “horrified” that she is the new presenter.
She said: “I am self-aware enough to know there will be Countdown viewers who are horrified that I’m there ruining their programme.
“I genuinely am really excited, though, and it’s wonderful to have purpose again.”

Anne is best known for her role as most of the BBC game show The Weakest Link.
She appeared on the show for 11 years between 2000 and 2011.
It was recently announced that comedian and TV presenter Romesh Ranganathan will be hosting a new celebrity series of The Weakest Link on the BBC.
Anne recently said she is “delighted” to hear that the programme will be returning.
“I only learnt about it at the weekend, which is great,” she explained.
“I’m delighted. It will be a very different Weakest Link, because I honestly couldn’t get away with saying now what I used to say.”
Anne’s old catchphrase, “you are the weakest link… goodbye”, will continue to be used.
Anne Robinson will be making her Countdown debut on Channel 4 at 2.10pm.
