Lorraine Kelly was noticeably absent at the helm of her daytime show on Monday, after recently testing positive for Covid.

Instead, Carol Vorderman stepped in to front ITV’s Lorraine in the coming days while the show’s usual host recuperates.

On Monday morning, Lorraine shared that she’d tested positive over the weekend, tweeting: “Well the Covid has finally got me… thanks to the vaccine it’s not too bad and I hope to be back at work very soon.”

She also sent her “huge thanks” to Carol, who she said “will be hosting Lorraine until I’m back”.

On Sunday, Carol tweeted that she’d be serving as the “deputy to the deputy [Christine Bleakley] to the boss Lorraine and hosting Lorraine for a few days this week”.

The former Countdown star opened Monday’s show by commenting that Lorraine had caught “the dreaded you know what” and wished her a “speedy recovery”.

“I didn’t look like this at five o’clock this morning, that is for sure,” she joked.

Carol went on to interview broadcaster Shelagh Fogarty and choir master Gareth Malone during the show.

Lorraine has hit the headlines several times in recent history thanks to interviews featured on the show, including with disgraced MP Neil Parish and former health secretary Matt Hancock, who discussed the unrest within the Conservative party.

Lorraine airs every weekday on ITV from 9am.
