LORRAINE Kelly has been the staple of morning TV for over three decades.
Viewers are used to seeing her cheery face help kickstart their day – but Lorraine was not there this morning (October 30, 2023).
Where is Lorraine Kelly?
Lorraine Kelly was absent from her self-titled popular morning show again today (October 30, 2023).
Fans of the popular Scottish presenter are used to seeing her host ITV's Lorraine every weekday morning from 9am.
But she has been away from her hosting duties since October 20, 2023.
Lorraine is away from the show, as she is taking the half-term holiday off.

The TV host has always traditionally taken the school holidays off – despite her daughter being all grown up.
Lorraine's only child Rosie Smith was born in 1994, and now works for a charity.
Who replaced Lorraine?
Bosses have brought in Good Morning Britain star Ranvir Singh to replace Lorraine.
She often fills in for LK when she's away from the show.

Last week (October 23 to 27, 2023) Christine Lampard hosted the show.
Like Ranvir, she also regularly covers for Lorraine when she is off air.
Some fans were confused as to why Christine was hosting the show over half-term when she has kids who are school age, and Lorraine doesn't.
One viewer said: "'Why is Lorraine off for half-term, she doesn't have school age kids."
Another said: "'Half-term which means the woman with a 28-year-old takes the week off and the woman with two young children does her show!"
One more commented: "Ah yes. Lorraine has half term off despite her daughter not having been at school for about 20 years, only to be replaced by someone with school age kids. The usual makes-no-sense move.
Meanwhile on October 20, 2023, former BBC Breakfast host Louise Minchin took on the presenting duties.
GMB's Kate Garraway announced she was on the show, and said to the former BBC star: "Louise Minchin is in for Lorraine at 9.
"Hello, how lovely to see you on this side of the pond!"
When will Lorraine be back on ITV?
Lorraine will be back presenting her show on Monday, November 6, 2023 at 9am.
ITV's Lorraine is a show filled with lifestyle, entertainment and fashion stories.
You can catch it from 9am until 10am Monday to Friday.
Lorraine is on in between GMB and This Morning.
The legendary TV star has been the face of her own self-titled show since 2010, and before that was known for GMTV's Lorraine, which followed a similar format.
However she got her big break in the 1980s, when she landed a presenting gig on TV-am, which is what Good Morning Britain is now.
