Neil wrote: “3 weeks ago my little girl, Keira, was hit by a van. She has been in a critical state and the fear of losing her has been overwhelming. 

“Her outlook remains unknown. We hope & keep the faith that she will be OK. I’ll bring an update when the time is right. Thank you for caring x.”

Lorraine replied: “Oh Noel. I’m so so sorry – I hope she’s OK. I know how much you love her. Sending you so much love xxxxx.”

It comes as the morning TV host was surprised on Friday with news that she would be receiving a CBE, just eight years after being awarded an OBE.

In her column for Hello! Magazine, Lorraine wrote: “I’m so very surprised and really delighted to have been awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.”

She also heaped praise upon ITV colleague Dr Hilary who has been “given a gong” from the monarch too.

Lorraine added: “Dr Hilary has been the voice of calm and reason throughout the pandemic. 

“He’s on air every morning making sense of the new rules and bringing wisdom and clarity when it has been needed most.”

The Scotland native described receiving her OBE in 2012 as being one of the “proudest” days of her life as she detailed being recognised outside the palace.

She continued: “I did a live broadcast for my show outside the palace gates at 8.30am in the morning and always remembering being approached by a large policeman who I thought was going to ask me and the cameraman to ‘move along’.

“Instead, he politely asked for a “selfie” which was a brilliant start to the day.”

Lorraine also had made headlines yesterday after an interview with actors with Tom Hollander and Tom Taylor went array.

First, the TV host’s opening question was met with an awkward silence from the stars, as she hadn’t specified which Tom she was referring to.

It later transpired that Tom Taylor was unable to hear the interview and went off-camera while technical experts tried to resolve the issue.

Lorraine said of the difficulties: “I’m sorry there are some communication problems, it’s like when you know you’re phoning your pals and it’s really hard because you’re like ‘what, what?'”

As viewers on Twitter began to call Tom Hollander a bit “grumpy” and the interview a “car crash”, Lorraine stepped in to defend the actor.

She tweeted: ”I actually thought he was adorable – Zoom calls can sometimes be tricky.”

Previously on the programme, she had made Love Island narrator Ian Stirling feel uneasy as she asked him questions on proposing to long-term love Laura Whitmore.

Ian hit back: “Lorraine, this was not in the research chat. I expected better from you!”

However, he soon found the funny side, as he later asked Lorraine to “officiate” the ceremony if they held it in Dundee.
