Lorraine Kelly strips down to her bikini live on air

Lorraine Kelly stripped down to her bikini and danced live on air on Thursday, to inspire women to embrace their figures this summer. The 55-year-old TV presenter left the ITV studios during her morning show Lorraine, and headed outside to London's Southbank, where she showed off her body on camera.

Lorraine, wearing a floral patterned two piece, looked incredible as she danced along to Maroon 5's Move Like Jagger. The brave stunt was to help promote her Bikini Promise campaign, which launched on Lorraine in June and asked viewers to make a promise to themselves to be fit and healthy and wear their bikinis with confidence, no matter of their age, shape or size.

She was joined by three Bikini Promise volunteers who showed off their summer bodies alongside the TV star. Lorraine told viewers she had decided to pose in her swimwear to show her solidarity with the women, saying: "I just had to do it!"

Viewers who wanted to take part in The Bikini Promise were given healthy recipes and exercises which were easy to learn and follow at home. The three volunteers have been following the plan throughout June and the start of July – and last month were flown to Mauritius for a masterclass in exercise and healthy eating.

"The thing is, it's all about confidence from within isn't it, and it's a mixture of the fact that you were eating well, doing the exercises," Lorraine said. "All the girls have been doing that, and it's been just brilliant!

"I just want to say thank you to all of you – you've been amazing and to everyone at home you've been really really good."

Mum Lorraine recently admitted that there was a time she wouldn't have felt comfortable posing in a bikini, but has now learnt to love her "flaws".

"It was a big deal for me and I wouldn't have been able to do it a couple of years ago," she said. "I struggled with my weight over the years and I would never have felt good enough to pose in my bikini in my twenties or thirties. But you get to the stage in life where you accept your flaws."
