Lorraine Kelly received a surprise birthday message from George Clooney on her show this morning, wishing her many happy returns as she turns 61.
The presenter was chatting to John Barrowman on Lorraine when the crew surprised her with a few birthday treats – including a message from gorgeous George himself.
To mark the occasion, Dr Hilary Jones brought her a cake adorned with George’s face and a T-shirt of them side by side.
John also sang Happy Birthday to Lorraine, calling her a ‘gorgeous piece of woman’.
Finally, Dr Hilary read out a special message from George, which read: ‘Hi Lorraine, George Cooney here. Sorry I can’t be with you in person today, but how would you like to spend the evening with me? I’ve lined up a special hotline for you to call tonight.
‘We can have a blether about your big day and my new film. See you then. Lots of love, George.’
‘Can I just say, I think George might not have written that,’ Lorraine joked after hearing the message.
‘Do I get to talk to him today? Oh, that’ll be so lovely,’ she added.
Later in the programme, she said that the chance to interview George was the ‘best present ever’.
Lorraine has made no secret of being a fan of the actor in the past, naming him as one of her favourite ever celebrity guests.
The presenter later thanked the show’s crew on Twitter for her presents, saying: ‘I’ve the best team in the world – and the mother of all parties when this is all over.’
Andi Peters also wished Lorraine a happy birthday on the programme, holding up a picture of her as a toddler and ‘you were lovely then, and you’re lovely now.’
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
