Sharing a snap of her negative lateral flow test, she explained in the caption: "NEGATIVE!! Finally – a nasty one but feeling fine now."

She went on to share that she will be back on her show in 18 July as she wrote: "See you all on Monday 9am @lorraine @itv HUGE thanks to @carolvorders for holding the fort. I’ve missed you all. #covid #negative #backtowork #happy #feelingbetter".

Fans immediately flocked to the comments section to share their joy over her return as one person wrote: "So happy you’re feeling better LORRAINE I will be glad to see you on Monday we’ve all missed you x," followed by a red heart emoji.

Another shared: "Be glad to see you back so glad you are better xxx," with a thumbs up emoji, as a third added: "Freedom …. We missed you on our screens big time … great to hear you’re well.."

Lorraine announced she had caught coronavirus on 11 July as she wrote on Twitter: “Well the Covid has finally got me and I tested positive at the weekend. Thanks to the vaccine it’s not too bad and I hope to be back at work very soon."

She also praised her last-minute replacement and added: “Huge thanks to @carolvorders who will be hosting @lorraine until I’m back.”

As Good Morning Britain hosts Susanna Reid and Ed Balls passed over to Carol in the Lorraine studio, Susanna said: "I didn't think you were in for our programme today."

Carol revealed: “Well, we didn't think so either, but sadly Lorraine has caught the dreaded you know what, so I'm sitting in for a few days, which I'm delighted to do."

Susanna added: "In the meantime you're doing a fabulous job, looking fabulous Carol," as Carol joked: "I didn't look like this at 5am this morning, that's for sure!"

On Instagram later on the same day, Lorraine posted a photo of her two sweet dogs and once again praised the vaccine.
