“The team is always so lovely and welcoming and now more than ever, it’ll be great to catch up with people and find out how they are getting on,” Christine continued.
Andi added: “I love Lorraine, I’ve known her for ten years, I’m on her show every day and it’s great to be part of that family.
“So, sitting in for her is an honour, Lorraine is an institution,” he added, becoming the second-ever male presenter to host the programme.
Speaking of her replacements, Lorraine commented: “I’m so delighted Christine and Andi will be standing in for me. They are both lovely people and total professionals.
“Actually, I’ve been trying to get Andi to present my show for ages but he’s always been away filming in exotic locations. I’m glad we’ve managed to pin him down.”
