ITV's Lorraine Kelly left 'shouting' at co-star live on air after awkward stunt

Lorraine Kelly was left shouting at a well known ITV colleague live on air on Tuesday, as he missed his cue on the morning show.

In a busy second broadcast of the week, Lorraine was joined by guests including Vicky Pattison, who spoke candidly about her decision to have her eggs frozen and singer Gwen Stefani, ahead of her first UK concerts in 16 years and release of her new single. Someone else who appeared on Tuesday's Lorraine was Doctor Hilary Jones, with the TV medic sitting in on Vicky's interview, before delivering news that was music to the ears of many viewers at home - napping is good for your health.

As the show headed into its third ad break of the day, Lorraine started to tease what was still to come in the final 20 minutes, one of those things being a chat with Dr Hilary, however, pretending to be asleep, he rather awkwardly failed to take his cue, forcing Lorraine to shout "DOCTOR HILARY!" before he finally realised he was back on camera.

The blunder came a day after Dr Hilary shocked ITV viewers over his age, as the GP, who has been a regular on ITV since the TV:Am days, before staying with the broadcaster for the likes of GMTV, Daybreak and Good Morning Britain, celebrated his 70th birthday. People watching at home could not get their heads round the fact that Dr Hilary was entering his seventh decade, with former I'm A Celebrity winner Vicky equally stunned when Lorraine told her on Tuesday..

The reaction on Twitter to Dr Hilary reaching the milestone age was huge, with one social media user reacting: "Doctor Hilary can’t be 70yrs old surely" and another tweeting: Dr Hilary to write: "you have helped so many people over your years as the Doctor in morning TV, your a credit to your profession & who doesn't look his age."
