Hello, I'm Lorraine Kelly! I left school at 17 and worked on my local newspaper before joining the BBC. I was TVam's Scottish correspondent until 1989 when I joined the presenting team.
I write a weekly column for The Sun and The Sunday Post and present the King and Kelly radio show every Sunday morning with showbiz reporter Ross King.
The type of food I’m best known for is: Scrambled eggs.
The proudest moment of my career is: It’s hard to pin-point just one. Every time I open a new restaurant there’s a great buzz and excitement. The opening of the first bills in Sydney, opening my 1st restaurant in Tokyo, then Granger & Co in London. The first time I get to flick through a copy of my latest cookbook is also pretty special. I guess it’s all about the firsts…
I'm a former digger driver who got my break in the food world by reaching the finals of Masterchef way back in 2006. It sounds corny but it really did change my life, since then I’ve appeared in Take on the Takeaway, This Morning and Saturday Cookbook to name a few.
My cookbook Mincespiration was released in 2013.
I’m Lorraine’s Showbiz Reporter which means I have one of the best jobs in the world getting to break all the biggest entertainment stories of the day and interview the most interesting stars in the world like Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Kanye West and Lady Gaga.
For the rest of the day I’m the Head of Showbiz at The Sun newspaper and a columnist for The Sun on Sunday, so I’m pretty busy but I love what I do.
I’m from New Zealand but have lived in the UK for nine years now, which explains my funny accent.
I’m best known for: Breaking big showbiz exclusives – break-ups, make-ups and bust-ups – and tweeting them often @danwootton
The proudest moment of my career is: Winning a British Press Award for Best Showbiz Reporter
The first thing I do in the morning is: Check my emails to see what’s gone on overnight
My favourite breakfast is: Granola with full fat milk
The most famous person in my phonebook is: Lorraine Kelly or Simon Cowell!
The actor who would play me in a film about Lorraine is: James Corden
My favourite memory from working on Lorraine is: Getting to interview Madonna in New York. It was her only British interview and it was a great experience.
If I wasn’t a showbiz reporter for Lorraine, I’d be: Watching at home
You’d be surprised to learn that: My passion outside of showbiz is politics
The one thing I couldn’t live without is: My iPad Mini
I am an NHS GP and have worked as a specialist in eye surgery, have worked for the oil industry in Shetland, and as a single-handed doctor on the most isolated inhabited island in the world, Tristan da Cunha.
Since 1989, I’ve been a medical presenter on breakfast television on ITV.
I’m best known for my early-morning appearances on Daybreak, and as a regular guest on Steve Wright’s radio 2 programme.
I started out in the catering industry washing up for pocket money at 12 years old then got hooked on food, worked for the Roux Brothers in London and New York and for the two Michelin Star chef Martin Blunos.
I opened my first restaurant Tanners in 1999 then Barbican Kitchen in 2006, promoted food on many TV shows since 2002.
I went to Glasgow School of Art and had a fantastic time there getting my BA Hons in Design. Whilst I was there I was styling for some amazing photoshoots for different Scottish newspapers and also working in fashion retail.
When I was in my forth and final year I was approached to do a pilot fashion series that toured around the country, and this one was in Glasgow. It turned out to be the hugely successful show She’s Gotta Have it on Channel 4. I was taken on as both an on screen stylist and behind the scenes stylist for all six series.
Whilst doing that, I under took freelance work to help get my portfolio together and worked (most of the time for free) on different projects and shoots that went into Cosmo, Marie Claire, Hello, ID, and loads of different magazines and newspapers.
I’m a TV Host, Actor, Producer, Writer, winner of 4 News Emmys, 2 Sony Awards, 1 Golden Mic, Cycling Proficiency Badge and Bronze Duke of Edinburgh.
