Lorraine Kelly to receive ‘special’ BAFTA award for 40 years in broadcasting

Rosie’s pregnancy announcement isn’t the only exciting news for Lorraine, who recently found out she will receive a special prize at the BAFTA television awards in recognition of her 40 years in broadcasting.

The Masked Singer star was surprised with the news by Susanna Reid on her ITV daytime show on March 26.

Opening a gold envelope, Susanna told her: “On behalf of the BAFTA board of trustees, we are delighted to offer you, Lorraine Kelly, the academy special award to be presented at this year’s BAFTA television awards.”

Lorraine replied: “Where’s Ant and Dec? It can’t be a prank because it’s Susanna!”

Susanna said the award recognised Lorraine’s “outstanding contribution” over her 40-year career in broadcasting, since she joined TV-am in 1984.

She added: “You’re not just an inspiration to viewers, you’re an inspiration to people like me, women in broadcasting.”

Reflecting on the start of her career, Lorraine commented: “I was a baby, I got my chance in breakfast television because they were willing to take a risk on somebody who was told I’d never make it to TV because of the way I speak.”

She went on to say: “The boss of TV-am at the time was Australian and they needed a Scottish reporter, and he heard a Scottish accent and it was one of those things where it was like ‘Give her a go’.”

Lorraine continued: “I’ve got the best team. They’re incredible. They work so hard. And it’s quite a tiny team, as we know, and they just work so incredibly hard. And this is crazy.”
