Synopsis

Lorraine Kelly is Britain's undisputed Queen of breakfast television. From "TV-am", "GMTV" and "This Morning" to "LK Today", her genuine warmth, enthusiasm and energy have made her the most-loved broadcaster in Britain. But there is far more to Lorraine than glossy television shows. Born in a one-bedroom flat in Glasgow's notorious Gorbals district, she became a journalist the hard way. She spent years learning her trade on local papers before working as a researcher on BBC Scotland - where bosses told her she would never get a job in front of a camera. Since then, Lorraine has certainly proved them wrong, reporting on some of the toughest stories of the age - from the Piper Alpha and Lockerbie disasters to the tragedy at Dunblane. And with every job she has shown the sensitivity and compassion that have helped viewers take her to their hearts.Today Lorraine is a true television superwoman. This fantastic biography charts her extraordinary life and career; the endless struggles with her weight; the happiness she has found with husband Steve and daughter Rosie; the old friends who have kept her grounded in London's showbiz jungle; and the real reason why she started running marathons in her 40s - raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity in the process.
