Lorraine Kelly reveals the REAL reason she missed the National Television Awards after Vogue Williams stepped in to host on the red carpet
Lorraine Kelly has revealed the real reason she missed the National Television Awards on Tuesday evening.
The Scottish presenter, 63, was notably absent from the star-studded event despite being nominated in the Daytime category.
Her show Lorraine was up for the esteemed gong, but ultimately lost out to winners The Repair Shop, as they seized the crown from reigning winners This Morning.
Lorraine was nowhere to be seen at the ceremony and Vogue Williams hosted on the star-studded red carpet on behalf of the ITV morning chat show.
Helming her self-titled show on Wednesday morning, Lorraine shared why she missed the awards ceremony, telling how it was her wedding anniversary.

The NTAs fell on the same day as Lorraine’s anniversary this year, with the TV star choosing to miss the occasion to celebrate with her husband Steve Smith.
‘It was my wedding anniversary, so I didn’t make it,’ she said of missing the event.
Lorraine tied the knot with her husband Steve in a ‘tiny’ ceremony in Dundee on September 5, 1992, and marked an amazing 31 years of marriage on Tuesday.
The couple met when Steve was working as a cameraman on TV-am, where Lorraine was a reporter, and she has previously told how she immediately knew he was ‘The One’.
Reflecting on the secret to her happy marriage on Tuesday’s show, ahead of the NTAs, Lorraine gushed that she was a ‘very lucky woman’.
She said: ‘It’s my wedding anniversary today. It’s been 31 happy years and never a bad word said. Probably because he doesn’t get a word in edgeways.
‘I’m a very lucky woman. So happy anniversary Steve, 31 years together. We’re going to celebrate in our own way tonight.’
As she missed the NTAs to celebrate with Steve, Irish TV personality Vogue, 37, took to the red carpet to speak to the stars on behalf of her ITV morning show.
For the occasion, Vogue looked very glamorous in a quirky black sequinned gown complete with a dramatic hood by De La Vali.

While Lorraine was up for the Daytime award at the NTAs, it was The Repair Shop who took home the prize in the esteemed category.
It was a huge blow to fellow ITV show This Morning as it lost its 12-year winning streak in the category.
The show has won the Daytime award for more than a decade but following the Phillip Schofield scandal, lost out to The Repair Show.
During the ceremony, the NTA audience also appeared to boo scandal-plagued show This Morning during the star-studded ceremony at the O2 in London.
The incident occurred as The One Show’s Jermaine Jenas and Roman Kemp took to the stage to announce the nominations for Best Daytime Show – an award typically scooped by This Morning.
While introducing a fun clip from the ITV series the audience were heard shouting and booing.
Elsewhere, after The Repair Shop’s win, host Jay Blades encouraged the crowd to cheer as the show’s team took to the stage at The O2 and took a picture of the moment as he noted it was a ‘rarity’ for them to be winning the prize.
Blades thanked those who voted and the team behind the show, adding: ‘I would like to salute my experts, they are my family.’
He also praised his fellow nominees at This Morning, The Chase and Loose Women, saying: ‘We’re the new kids on the block ad I’m glad we’ve won this time.

Mixed emotions: It was a night of what ifs for Alison Hammond, but it was business as usual for Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly as they took home the Best Presenter
‘I know it won’t be a regular thing so thank you.’
Beneath the lights of London’s O2 Arena, it was Ant and Dec who claimed their 22nd NTA at the annual ceremony following a successful return to the Australian jungle with ITV1 juggernaut I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
The pair claimed the Best Presenter award ahead of the much fancied Alison, notably selected ahead of her This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby in the category.
