It comes after Lorraine blushed earlier this month when Ben Shephard shared the very racy text messages her husband sends her during his live shows.
Ben and co-host Susanna Reid were wrapping up Good Morning Britain before doing a live link with Lorraine, and the presenter couldn’t resist bringing up an article involving her and Steve.
And Lorraine was clearly shocked by the cheeky messages from her partner that were revealed when she asked Ben, ‘How did they get that?’
During the live link where Lorraine explained what was coming up on her show, Ben, 48, quizzed her about the newspaper article, joking: “He seems to be very generous with his affections while you’re on air.”

Lorraine didn’t feel so sure about this though, as she pointed to her geometric print shirtdress that was buttoned up to her neck and said, “This dress isn’t going to be getting any feedback from him this morning though, Ben.”
As Ben replied, “I’m sure he’ll send you something lovely anyway.”
Wrapping up the light-hearted exchange, Susanna said: ‘You always look fabulous, Lorraine. There are many serious problems, so it’s good to have a moment of joy.’
