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

Format[edit]

Each day the presenter gives a brief introduction describing what's coming up on the show, before discussing the main stories from the morning's newspapers with a male and female reviewer. On Fridays this is replaced by a showbiz update from Dan Wootton and a Los Angeles update from Ross King. The show's first guest(s) tends to be interviewed next aside from Mondays which feature Lorraine Investigates with Craig Doyle, Wednesdays which feature fashion from Mark Heyes and Thursdays which feature money-saving advice from Martin Lewis. A summary of the days news is shown at 09:00 from the Daybreak studio, presented by Ranvir Singh. The chef who is appearing that week then cooks their dish for the day in "Lorraine's Kitchen", before the final guest(s) makes their appearance. The competition that runs on Daybreak also appears throughout the show. The programme is sponsored by Garnier,[1] having been previously being sponsored by Actimel and Jergens Naturals.[2]

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 vibrantly coloured in a variety of pastel hues and decorative motifs dominated by pink. The sofa for the presenter and guests is 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 Sarah Parish[3] and a recipe by TV chef James Tanner while Celia Walden[4] and Kevin Maguire[5] reviewed the morning's newspapers.

Crossover with Daybreak[edit]

There is a preview of the day's edition of Lorraine on Daybreak each day at around 07:30 with a chat between the programmes' hosts prior to a handover at 08:30. This preview was originally shown at 08:15 but was moved to an earlier slot in March 2011. On 30 November 2010, Daybreak co-host Adrian Chiles wore a kilt and make an on-screen visit to the Lorraine studio to congratulate Kelly on her birthday and mark St Andrew's Day.[6] On 20 July 2011, Lorraine was presented from the Daybreak studio due to technical problems.

Programming changes[edit]
