Lorraine Kelly has revealed there is one thing she always does as soon as she wakes up on Christmas Day – and it's not what you might expect! The ITV presenter revealed her Christmas traditions in our exclusive HELLO! advent calendar, and said she always starts her day with a special treat.

"I have always loved Christmas and I've got lots and lots of Christmas traditions. The really important one being that when it's Christmas morning and I wake up I have to eat a whole chocolate orange to myself," Lorraine revealed. "Nobody gets even a sniffle of it, it's all for me and I have to do that before breakfast. It's just tradition. It's just the way it is."

Lorraine admitted she has always been a big fan of the holidays, and particularly enjoyed putting out food and drink for Father Christmas on Christmas Eve when she was a child. "I absolutely love Christmas, I've always loved Christmas, from when I was tiny. Putting out the mince pie for Santa and a massive glass of whiskey that Santa loves obviously, and the carrots for the reindeer," Lorraine explained. "I love all that, I think it's so lovely."

It is a tradition she continued for her own daughter Rosie when she was younger – and it certainly appeared to leave a lasting impression! "When Rosie was tiny, I remember when we used to put glittery footsteps all over the hearth because we had a real fire, so obviously Santa had been," she explained. "Just to reinforce the fact that Santa had been. One time Santa left behind a little bit of red velvet from his cloak and she kept that for years and years."
