Lorraine Kelly absent for second day as Ranvir Singh steps in to host ITV show

Lorraine Kelly was absent for a second day on Thursday after she was sent home early on Wednesday due to going down with a "hideous" bug.

The presenter, 63, was replaced by Ranvir Singh on Wednesday and the Good Morning Britain star stepped in again on Thursday to host the ITV show.

During Thursday's Good Morning Britain, Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard went to the Lorraine studio to hear what was happening on the show.

To which Ranvir appeared, joking she was given more notice today than she was yesterday, saying: "Lorraine is still recovering, I got in for 6:30 today so I should be fully prepared for the show today as opposed to yesterday!"

It comes as Lorraine tweeted on Wednesday: "When you have to be sent home from work early in the morning because you are suddenly attacked by a hideous bug and were looking forward to interviewing @adamlambert THAT!"

The presenter added: "Beyond disappointed but imagine if I had infected him !!!!!!"

Lorraine's fans, viewers and celebrity pals were quick to wish the Scottish presenter well after her statement.

Victoria Kennedy, editor of Lorraine, wrote: "Get well soon" with a heart and kiss emoji.

Aled Jones put: "Get well soon lovely x."

One fan wrote: "Oh no! That IS disappointment indeed. He is amazing!!! But thank you for protecting @adamlambert and hope you feel better soon."

A different viewer put: "Sorry to hear that Lorraine @adamlambert is SO missing out. Get well soon x."

While another follower added: "Oh no get well soon @reallorraine Just means you will have to invite @adamlambert back."

Ahead of Lorraine starting, GMB star Kate Garraway went to the ITV studio as she quipped: "Now, the jeopardy, has Ranvir made it in?"

It then cut to Ranvir, 45, in the Lorraine studio as she admitted she received a call at 7:18am from ITV and she was on the train by 7:30am to replace Lorraine.

She added: "I'm quite proud of myself this morning. Anyway, we want Lorraine to be well – don't we?! But thanks so much to Kate and Ed [Balls] there."

The Good Morning Britain star then sent her well wishes to Lorraine.

Lorraine continues on weekdays at 9am on ITV.
