Gail Rodwell will be seen getting VERY excited in Coronation Street tonight when she thinks she sees the one and only Lorraine Kelly on the same camp site she and the rest of the Platt clan have descended on.
Lorraine Kelly makes a cameo in the soap this week.
A star struck Gail becomes obsessed after she thinks she spots ITV superstar Lorraine Kelly in the same holiday park where she’s staying with the rest of her family.
Convinced it’s Lorraine, Gail manages to cajole Bethany and Sarah to chase after the poor woman in a pedalo.
Actor Ben Price who plays Nick Tilsley revealed that Lorraine would be turning stuntwoman for her stint in the soap.
He said: “She’s got a big part in this storyline. She’s got a stunt. She’s in the best family she could possibly be with – The Platts.”
Daytime telly icon Lorraine, 59, is set to make a long-anticipated appearance on Corrie playing herself in a scene shot on a boating lake.
She aired some of the backstage footage on her show yesterday, where it was revealed she was given both a body double for the dramatic scenes – and a Hollywood-style Winnebago.
Lorraine raved: “What an amazing day. I’ve had an absolute blast. Best day of my life, fantastic. All the crew and the cast could not have been nicer to me.”
The TV presenter will appear when the Platt family visit the same holiday camp as her, after grandma Audrey pays for the family to enjoy a getaway – and gets clocked by Gail.
When David and Nick fall out, Gail leaves them arguing and goes off on a mission to hunt down her idol Lorraine – with what producers promise are hilarious consequences.
While bosses haven’t released any more details about what Lorraine’s stunt is, given her scenes are filmed on a lake and involve a pedalo, there is likely to be some kind of waterborne collision.
Lorraine has been ticking dream experiences off her “bucket list” ahead of her 60th birthday in November – with an appearance in Corrie being one of her top targets.
