The 60-year-old presenter appeared alongside fashion expert Mark Heyes as the 'Lorraine' team aired an emotional montage of her best moments over the past four months of lockdown.

Reflecting on the heartwarming video, Lorraine said: "What a time it's been! The toughest thing is that we can't see who we love!"

Mark, 43, admitted he wanted to give his co-star a hug.

He added: "You really have got everyone through it. It's been amazing. Thank you."

Lorraine also heaped praise on the behind-the-scenes team who make her morning programme possible.

She said: "It's been great, and thanks everybody for watching. My crew are amazing, my team are fantastic."

Lorraine had been presenting her show from the 'Good Morning Britain' studio throughout the coronavirus pandemic before returning to her own set this week.

Reflecting on a hectic spell on air, she joked: "Goodness me, I'm going to need a big lie down!"

As the episode came to an end, the TV star took the time to deliver some kind words to her viewers as she encouraged them to "find some joy every day" despite the tough time everyone is having amid the health crisis.

She said: "That's it from me. I will see you really, really soon.

"Take care of yourselves and each other. Be sensible. Try and find some joy every day. Thanks again for watching, I appreciate it so much. I'll see you soon, bye-bye!"

With Lorraine now on her break, Andi Peters - who hosts the competition slots on the programme and sister show 'Good Morning Britain' - will be in the hot seat for the first time for two weeks from August 10.

Meanwhile, Christine Lampard will be at the helm from Monday (20.07.20) until August 7, and then again from August 24 until Lorraine's return on September 1.
