TV COOK LORRAINE PASCALE TALKS ABOUT BEING ADOPTED AND FOSTERED AS A CHILD
She's sold over a million cooking books and is a baking goddess.
And while we love her for her cakes and buns, TV cook Lorraine is also passionate about promoting fostering as a UK government fostering ambassador.
Lorraine was fostered by several different families up until she was 18-months, before being adopted by a family from Oxfordshire.
Her adoptive parents divorced when Lorraine was three-years-old and she ended up back in foster care when she was eight for just under a year, before returning to her adoptive mother.
Lorraine has since met her birth parents and says, 'I've connected with my real parents and it was like meeting with someone at a bus stop. I called the adoption hotline before I went and they said that it's very normal not to have a connection because you basically are two strangers.'
RUTH LANGSFORD'S SOCIAL MEDIA FAIL AS FANS SEE SAUCY PHOTOS ON HER PHONE!
Social media can be a minefield - and our Ruth found out the hard way when some saucy photos sent by a girlfriend for a joke saved to her phone and were accidentally posted on Twitter with her Mother's Day tribute.
'The picture on the left is my mummy, my niece sent them to me on Whatsapp,' Ruth explained on the show as the image flashed up behind the panel.
'I was trying to find one on the camera, I zoomed and screenshotted. What I didn’t know is when people send you racy pictures that go round, that are very amusing… I didn’t realise they get saved to your camera roll. I look at them, hilarious, then forget it.
'I posted that picture, thought, lovely.'

And Darius has also been making headlines with his love life. After marrying Canadian actress Natasha Henstridge in 2011 the pair filed for divorce in July 2013. But were spotted kissing over dinner in August 2016.
So, we asked him exactly what's going on!
'In the most bittersweet and wonderful way, we’re dear friends,' Darius explained. 'We filed for divorce three years ago.

COLEEN NOLAN ON SISTER LINDA'S CANCER: 'SHE'S NOT DYING FROM CANCER, SHE'S LIVING WITH IT'
Returning to the show today, brave Coleen spoke of her sister Linda’s recent heartbreaking cancer diagnosis.
'It’s difficult to know where to start. About two and a half weeks ago, my sister Linda had an accident at home. She actually broke her hip so went to hospital and while they did the scan of her hip, they found secondary cancer,' Coleen explained on the show.
Linda had been clear of cancer from breast cancer for six years.
'They found a cyst attached to where the break was - her pelvic bone. So it was just earth shattering for us initially. She’s incredible and what they have said is – and the reason I didn’t come back – she didn’t want anyone to know at the time. She didn’t want it to be out there at the time. We all had to get our head around it. She wanted me to come back now, she had enough sitting around – get back to work. She’s not ready to talk about it yet.'

In an emotional interview, they talked about his brother Oliver and dad Paul who both died of cancer.
'If Jake hadn't gone through X Factor, I would've had a breakdown,' Lisa revealed. 'Him looking forward to things gave us something to focus on. We needed that, not to forget but something to distract us.'
And Lisa broke down in tears when Jake read out a letter he'd written for Mother's Day.
'You've always supported me even when I was just laying round the house and messing everything up,' Jake read.
