She tied her dark brown locks off her face and completed her look with a polished palette of makeup.

Last year, Lorraine admitted to celebrating the news of her getting a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honors by getting “extremely drunk.”

The veteran TV host – who got an OBE nine years ago – giggled when she claimed the honor is “a great excuse” to get “more drunk” than she would have.

Piers Morgan said at the time, “You’ve been promoted from an OBE to a CBE. The next move is Dame Lorraine!’

Lorraine replied, ‘It’s beautiful. It’s a great excuse. I got extremely drunk on Friday night. I just thought: ‘I would have done it anyway’, but I got even more!’

The star said she felt “humiliated” to be recognized in the list. Clearly happy with the award, Lorraine told Hey!: ‘This is such an unexpected honour.

“I am very grateful and humble – especially as I am in much more deserving company. All those frontline workers are real heroes.’

In 2012, the ITV presenter was awarded an OBE by the Queen at Edinburgh’s Holyrood Palace on her Diamond Jubilee.
