Lorraine Kelly has been inundated with supportive messages from fans after hitting back at a viewer who criticised her hairstyle.

The ITV star, 63, responded to a Twitter comment about her appearance that read: "I really think Lorraine needs a makeover, hair is awful. I’m surprised no one has mentioned this time for a short cut Lorraine."

Replying to the tweet on Wednesday morning, Lorraine quipped: "Well good morning Cathy - only problem - when I have short hair I look like Wilson from 'Castaway' (if you know you know)."

You look fabulous Lorraine," while another added: "Wow. Nasty person. You look fab."

A third person commented: "Wow... how rude. Your hair looks lovely," while another agreed, adding: "I always think you look lovely."

Lorraine, who recently opened up about her mum's health condition, went on to discuss Prince Harry's attendance at King Charles' coronation, which is still uncertain.

"He should be there, he absolutely should be there," said Lorraine. "He and his whole family should absolutely be there and you would like to think they would be able to build bridges, I'm not sure though."
