A third person joked: "@lorraine as someone from the north east I'm offended by the way you pronounce Yorkshire... And also by the fact the person who types up the captions for the screen put "Yorkhire" and not Yorkshire." 

Lorraine joked about the mishap

Lorraine is enjoying the gradual lifting of the UK's lockdown restrictions as much as everyone else at the moment, and recently revealed that she'd gone for a visit to the hairdressers in her latest HELLO! column. She wrote: "My hair had grown so long, I couldn't do a thing with it and kept having to just put it up in a bun or a ponytail. I also had far too many grey hairs popping up that needed to be eradicated!

"So you can imagine my joy when the new rules meant I was FINALLY able to see top colourist Maleeka from Four Salon in Conduit Street for an appointment this week. I know some people might not understand what a big deal it is to get your hair sorted out, but it really does affect your confidence if every single day is a bad hair day and for the past couple of weeks that's what I have felt like."
