Lorraine Kelly downs shots with lookalike daughter to celebrate pubs reopening

Lorraine Kelly celebrated the reopening of pubs across the nation by downing some shots.

She was joined by her 26-year-old lookalike daughter Rosie as she cheekily tipped back the shot.

Clad in a fluffy coat to combat the chilly English weather, Lorraine, 61, looked grateful to be allowed to socialise once more at the Belgravia boozer.

In a clip posted to Rosie’s Instagram story, she beams as she downs the shot, before wincing at the flavour.

"Oh my!" she said when the aftertaste hit.

"Happy pubs are open day," Rosie captioned the snap.

The pair were joined by Rosie’s boyfriend James for a few pints afterwards.

In another pic outside the Horse & Groom pub, all three beamed at the camera while nursing their beers.

"The pubs are OPEN!" Lorraine wrote.

A red-faced Rosie commented on the snap: "I look like cousin itt".

Fans were quick to shower the trio with compliments, with one writing: "Lorraine keeping it real no filters. Bloody marvellous and refreshing."

"Great pub choice!" another wrote.

Someone else added: "Love ur daughter & boyfriend, fab looking couple xxxx."

And another keen follower penned: "Bet you had a fabulous time. Enjoy your time off work with Steve & Rosie. Stay safe and well."

A fifth typed: "Just BRILLIANT. Cheers!"

Rosie is Lorraine’s only child, after suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage in 2001.

Rosie moved to Singapore to work in marketing for three years, but has recently moved back in with her parents in Buckinghamshire after not being able to see them due to pandemic restrictions.

Speaking to The Sun in December about whether it was a struggle to grow up with a famous mum, Rosie admitted: "I’ve never known any different. She’s so lovely – if I had a mum who was controversial it would be different, but I’ve never had any hassle."

And Lorraine added that she felt "really lucky" that she and hubby Steve Smith had Rosie, adding: "We had a very happy, healthy, beautiful wee girl."

Lorraine has been taking a well-deserved Easter holiday from her morning programme, with Cat Deeley taking over the reins last week.

This week, she has been replaced by Ranvir Singh in the hot seat.

Some fans were full of praise for her interviewing style, with one tweeting: "Ranvir is brilliant on @lorraine. Thank you @ITV."

Another wrote: "Ranvir covering on @lorraine is always an absolute joy. She’s just so lovely."

Others weren’t so sure, accusing Ranvir of 'interrupting' her interviewees.

The week before, people had accused Cat Deeley of being 'too nice' when she filled in for the Scottish presenter.

Cat had admitted she was "a little bit terrified" of sitting in Lorraine’s seat.

She said: "I hope I’m even half as good as you Lorraine."
