‘He has a bug! We wish you the best, Lorraine. Ranvir is to the rescue, she is on her way.
On Twitter, Lorraine revealed that she had been sent home after being “suddenly attacked by a horrible bug.”

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.”
He often likes to say how wonderful you look in the morning in an affectionate way.
To which a red-faced Lorraine replied: ‘It depends on what I wear. It depends on how much I’m showing.
Going into more detail, she continued: “Sometimes he says ‘Nice tits,’ before asking about the story: ‘How did they get that? Where did that come from? Have I been talking too much again?
And while Ben suggested that Steve might be the source, Lorraine actually spilled the beans herself in an interview with Woman’s Weekly magazine.

With Ben chiming in, saying, “The next time Lorraine is on her show and looks at her phone, it could be Steve sending a little message.”

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.’
