Lorraine was reduced to tears last month after receiving a surprise message from her daughter via a video message on TV. Rosie treated her mum to a special Mother's Day message, telling her: "Happy Mother’s Day Mum, sending you lots of love from Laos. I hope Angus gives you lots of cuddles."
She then blew a kiss to the camera, as Lorraine told fashion guru Mark Heyes – who had encouraged Rosie to send the message: "How did you get her to do that? That's so nice! I've gone completely. Just seeing [Rosie's] wee face that was so nice because I miss her!" The doting mum later thanked Mark for arranging the surprise, explaining on Twitter: "Rosie lives and works in Singapore and although we talk all the time – I miss her! Was such a lovely surprise."

It all seemed very strange," she wrote. Rosie added that because Lorraine has been famous since she was born, she doesn't know any different. "Of course it has its ups and downs but she's always been just mum to me."
