WATCH: Kate and Ben speculate that Lorraine had started to social distance for Strictly

She said: "One of the reasons that she is not here is that she's gone into a Strictly bubble! You know how they're talking about couples going into bubbles for social distancing? Lorraine is rumoured to be one of them."

The pair had their suspicions about where Lorraine was on Tuesday morning

 After asking Christine what the crew on Lorraine's show knew, she said: "Not a word, I'm being told in my ear," before the Strictly theme music was played. When asked if she would recommend doing it to Lorraine, she added: "I guess I would! The bubble thing beforehand would be quite intense, I'm not sure I could cope with that bit. It's stressful enough doing that show. If I hear any gossip, I will tell you here obviously!"

However, Lorraine has previously said that she would never want to do Strictly. Speaking to Prima back in 2018, she explained: "I’ve been asked to Strictly, but I wouldn’t say yes. Not in a million years. I love the show but would be rubbish. Anton Du Beke came on my show and said he’d teach me to dance, but when he tried, I went all Scottish and stiff and he said, “Oh my God you’re right, it’s like holding a tree.'" Who knows, maybe she has changed her mind in the last two years!
