Lorraine Kelly admits weight ballooned in lockdown as she’s desperate to shed two dress sizes

LORRAINE Kelly has spoken candidly about how her weight ballooned during lockdown – and how she's desperate to shed two dress sizes.

The 62-year-old is seen on television for at least five days a week, fronting her own ITV mid-morning show, Lorraine.


It was one of the very few TV shows which remained on-air during the coronavirus pandemic.

But during lockdown, the Scottish presenter went from a dress size 10 to a 14.

Now, the 62-year-old has revealed how this happened and her plan to get back to “feeling herself”.

Lorraine blamed “comfort eating” with a nightly plate of chocolate as the reason she has put on weight, admitting: “It went from a tiny square to a whole bar.”

In November last year, Lorraine was trying on dresses for the ITV Palooza, in particular, a size 10 red satin gown which she had previously worn to the NTAs in 2016.

However, the dress didn’t fit, Lorraine revealed how horrified she was: “I couldn’t get it over my hips.”

Instead, she opted for a size 14 black dress and said: “I looked ok, but I didn’t feel ok. I didn’t feel my best.”

As for how Lorraine feels now, she said: “I know that I’ve really got a little bit of work to do – and I need help.

“I don’t feel like myself anymore. I knew that if I didn’t do something I’d be a 16, and then I’d be an 18.

"There is nothing wrong with being a size 14, but my body is supposed to be a 10."
