Lorraine Kelly was forced to apologise for on-air spelling error after viewers pointed out the blunder on Wednesday’s edition of the show.

The presenter, 61, addressed the comments from fans on social media live on the ITV programme after the typo was spotted during the latest news bulletin.

The clip focused on Tom Cruise’s surprise appearance in North Yorkshire while he was filming for Mission Impossible seven.

The ITV show, Lorraine, wrote "Yorkhire" instead of "Yorkshire" which upset those who hail from the historic county in Northern England.


After the issue was brought to the attention of the producers of the show, Lorraine joked that the "person responsible will be flogged."

She said: “" have to say a huge apology to everybody in Yorkshire because we spelled it wrong, it was just a slip of the typewriter."

One user wrote: "Seriously. Does nobody proofread at #Lorraine? Just have a quick glance after typing 7 words – not too much to ask, is it?"

Another added: "#lorraine @reallorraine @lorraine as someone from the north east I'm offended by the way you pronounced Yorkshire . . . And also by the fact the person who types up the captions for the screen put "Yorkhire" and not "Yorkshire"

This comes after the Hollywood stars Hayley Atwell and Tom Cruise were spotted by locals in the Yorkshire town of Pickering.

This comes after the ITV presenter took a shot of Sambuca as she returned to the pub with her daughter Rosie as the UK eases lockdown restrictions.

The television host was over the moon with the beer-gardens reopening as she took to social media to share photos of her with her daughter at a London pub.

Posting to her 16,000 followers on Instagram, Rosie shared the hilarious snap of her bare-faced mother taking a swig of the strong spirit to her Instagram stories.

She captioned the video: “Happy pubs are open day” as Lorraine bravely downed the shot.
