Lorraine Kelly shocked at funny Coronation Street mention on ITV soap

Early morning television presenter Lorraine Kelly has admitted to being extremely shocked to have heard her name mentioned by a band of Coronation Street characters as she sat down to watch the ITV soap.

Lorraine, 62, told viewers on Thursday 24 March that she wasn't expecting to hear herself being referenced on the Cobbles and that the experience was "very strange".

Wednesday 23 March's episode saw Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) and Gary Windass (Mikey North) sitting in Roy's Rolls cafe, engaged in a heated discussion about the former's turbulent relationship with "dying" mother, Laura (Kel Allen).

"I meant what I said when I don't want her in that flat," Kelly angrily tells Gary.

"That's a bit harsh!" waitress Bernie Winter (Jane Hazelgrove) chimes in, before Gary instructs her, "Oh, come on, mind your own."

Bernie hit back: "Look, if this is a private conflab, do you wanna take the volume down a notch, Lorraine Kelly just phoned, said she can hear you in Glasgow!"

Lorraine seemed to find her Weatherfield mention extremely amusing, joking to viewers: "I have got Roy's [Cropper] phone number! I'm always phoning him up about the chess club and the train spotting society!"

"That was last night's Corrie," the Scottish talk-show host laughed. "I was quite shocked getting mentioned, it's really weird when that happens, honestly.

"It's very strange, but very good, thank you Corrie!"

Soap fans were also surprised to hear the daytime TV star's name mentioned, with some taking to Twitter to laugh about her little cameo.

One jested: "Lorraine Kelly will be lapping this mention tomorrow sure sure [wink face] #Corrie".

While another added: "@lorraine apparently you can hear coronation street in Glasgow!".
