Lorraine's parents were teenagers when they welcomed her into the world. In 2014, the TV star told The Guardian: "Mum was unmarried when she got pregnant with me, and Granny Mac, my formidable maternal grandmother, wanted her to have me down south before giving me up." She added: "Dad refused because he was very much in love with Mum, and they married four months before I was born. They were just teenagers and I can't imagine how they coped."

Opening up about her close bond with her mum, Lorraine revealed: "Mum and I are very close and speak all the time. She watches me on television every day and if she'd had more opportunities she would have made a great journalist because she asks really good questions. When I told her I was interviewing Joan Collins, she said, "Make sure you ask her this and this ...". If I'm talking to anyone while I'm presenting, it's Mum."
