This week Lorraine was finally back in her studio after more than 14 weeks joining the Good Morning Britain team due to the current pandemic, and she was thrilled. The likes of Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid have now gone on their annual summer breaks and Lorraine was quick to announce to her viewers that she was also stepping away from the cameras for a few weeks. Fans don’t need to worry though as it’s now been revealed that Andi will be taking her place in an ITV show first.
Lorraine has been on hand throughout the lockdown and the host has now revealed she will be taking a break so she can visit her family in Scotland.
It’s been a tough few months since the Prime Minister sent the UK into lockdown, but viewers have got through it with the help of people like Piers, Susanna and Lorraine.
However, as the regular presenters step back for a few weeks, Andi will take Lorraine’s place making him the first man to present the show in a decade.
The last man to take the helm was performer Michael Ball who presented a handful of shows back in 2010.

As viewers know, Andi presents the competition slots on Good Morning Britain and Lorraine, so this is a massive step up and fans will be excited to see him presenting somewhere other than his garage where he has been during much of lockdown.
Andi said: “I love Lorraine, I’ve known her for 10 years, I’m on her show every day with competitions and it’s great to be part of that family.
“So, sitting in for her is an honour, Lorraine is an institution.
“As much as I adore always giving away money on the competition slots, I’m looking forward to chatting to people and having a whole hour to actually relax into it.
“I’m a bit of a chatterbox. I’ll enjoy having guests on, who want to have a bit of a chinwag and also to be able to do some serious stuff.
“I am happy and jolly, and that will always be there, but obviously I do have an opinion.
“The good thing about ITV Daytime is that we are allowed to have opinions.”
Christine Lampard will also be stepping in to help whilst the queen of morning television is away.

Christine explained: “I’m really looking forward to being back at Lorraine.
“The team is always so lovely and welcoming and now more than ever, it’ll be great to catch up with people and find out how they are getting on.”
Lorraine said: “I’m so delighted Christine and Andi will be standing in for me. They are both lovely people and total professionals.
“Actually, I’ve been trying to get Andi to present my show for ages but he’s always been away filming in exotic locations. I’m glad we’ve managed to pin him down.”

During her break Lorraine will be seeing her parents who are up in Scotland.
She wrote in her Hello! column earlier this week: “I can help take some of the burden off my mum for a while.”
Lorraine’s father is currently ill so the presenter assured viewers she would be respecting social distancing measures.
Lorraine airs on ITV weekdays at 9am.
