A fourth admitted that they suffered from side effects, but were glad they had it done anyway, explaining: "Had mine last Sat, had Pfizer for booster, AZ for first two, had awful side effects from booster, just beginning to feel okay today, would rather have some side effects from vaccine than COVID! Well done Lorraine and #nhs."

The star is a mum-of-one

The Lorraine presenter has always been open about her health, as she previously admitted that her menopause experience was "horrible".

"My husband didn't know what was going on!" she said. "He said, 'What can I do, how can I help?' It was him who said, 'You have to get some help'."

From there, Lorraine spoke to ITV's resident doctor, Dr Hilary Jones, who suggested it was her menopause taking shape. "We quite rightly talk about women going through the menopause," she said. "But partners go through it too and I don't think we talk about it enough."
