‘I’m back in my size 10 jeans!’: Lorraine Kelly, 62, reveals she’s regained her confidence after losing the 1.5 stone she gained in lockdown
Lorraine Kelly has revealed she’s regained her confidence after dropping two dress sizes and losing 1.5 stone.
The 62-year-old TV legend admitted that prior to lockdown she was ‘doing well’ with her weight but was unable to ‘enjoy wearing [her] clothes’ after gaining weight during the pandemic.
At her heaviest, Lorraine revealed she was 11st 10 lbs and was ‘unhappy’ with herself after stopping all her exercise classes and binging on wine and chocolate in lockdown.

She told Metro newspaper’s SixtySeconds column: ‘I knew I needed a bit of help, so I joined WW and with the help of others and the app I dropped two dress sizes and managed to get back into my size 10s at the end of January.
‘Being able to get back into my size 10 jeans was a big deal! I must have put on more than a stone and a half – I was about 11st 10 lbs – but for me, it was not just about fitting into my posh black frock that wouldn’t go over my bottom but about being happy in myself.
‘I went to the BAFTAs and really enjoyed the day but I wouldn’t have gone to the ceremony in the beginning of January. I just wouldn’t have had the confidence to get up on stage. Now I feel like going out again!’

Lorraine previously revealed her weight loss has revitalised her relationship with her husband of 22 years Steve.
She explained: ‘Steve says, ”I’ve got you back,” because my energy levels have improved. I’m up for doing stuff now whereas before, at the weekend, I would do some housework and then collapse in front of the telly.’
Lorraine added that Steve enjoys being part of the healthier cooking, adding recipes to his menu as he goes.
And, while she admits the couple may have a party but aren’t planning on renewing their wedding vows for their 30th anniversary in September, she would fit into her wedding dress once again.
The ITV star occasionally shares snaps of herself alongside Steve to her Instagram but their relationship has mostly been out of the public eye.
The couple share daughter Rosie, 28.
