Lorraine Kelly to recieve special Bafta

Scottish broadcaster Lorraine Kelly is going to recieve a special Bafta award for services over the last 40 years.

The TV star was surprised with the news by Susanna Reid on her ITV daytime show.

Opening a gold envelope, Reid 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.”

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

People were quick to joke about the award on social media though, asking if Christine Lampard or Ranvir Singh would be accepting the award on her behalf - poking fun at the number of times her show is covered whilst she is off.
