Exclusive: Lorraine Kelly admits she ‘loves being unleashed’ and embraces her ‘cheeky’ side

Lorraine Kelly admitted she loves to feel ‘unleashed’ and that her debut novel reflects her ‘cheeky’ side in an exclusive interview for our March issue. 

The 64-year-old British broadcasting icon, who has worked in the world of morning telly for more than 40 years, opened up about penning her debut novel, her relationship with husband Steve, her consciousness of early signs of Alzheimer’s as she gets older, the importance of checking her boobs and lots more when she sat down for a chat with us.

Ahead of the release of her first novel, The Island Swimmer, Lorraine, who shares 29-year-old daughter Rosie Smith with husband Steve, confessed that it’s always been her “dream” to write one – but declared that you won’t find any “naughtiness” in the book, despite the fact she loves to feel “unleashed”. 

“I actually think sex is very difficult to write, so I’ll leave it to others! Parts of the book are funny and quite cheeky – because I am.”

Lorraine added, “I love being unleashed! A lot of people have a perception of my show and think it’s all cuddly, lovely kittens, bunny rabbits and unicorns with rainbows shooting out of their bumholes.”
