I got a lovely surprise last week when I opened my mail to find an invitation to attend a rather grand event. It was from Lorraine Kelly, a friend from my GMTV days, to attend a celebration of a rather amazing 30 years in breakfast TV!
I remember working with Lorraine during my early days as a rather amateurish weather man and later on doing roving reports with Lorraine’s husband, Stevie, being my cameraman. These were happy and exciting days for me and I would really have liked to have gone along to see Lorraine, Eamonn, Penny Smith, Mr Motivator, Sally Meen, Matt Lorrenzo and others , many of whom I haven’t seen for nearly 20 Years. Unfortunately with kids to ferry to clubs other domestic duties and an early start the next day, I’m afraid I had to decline the invitation.
However, Kathy is going (she worked worked on TV am when Lorraine was a cub reporter) so I will get all the gossip on Thursday morning when Kathy and I will be presenting the Morning Show….. both still doing the mornings!
