Congratulations to the loveable Lorraine Kelly, who celebrates 30 years of presenting breakfast television today (September 29).

After receiving a gift of 30 golden cupcakes and Ben Shephard dressed in a kilt on Lorraine Live this morning, the 54-year-old Scottish presenter was also surprised with the announcement that she's set to star on Corrie tonight.

An emotional Kelly responded: "It's been overwhelming and amazing. I can't believe it's been 30 years, it's gone by in a flash, but you know, you're only as good as your team and my team, both on-screen and off-screen, are fabulous, the very best. I'm going to cry!"

Kelly began her TV career as an on-screen reporter covering Scottish news on TV-am in 1984, before moving to presenting on Good Morning Britain in 1990, GMTV with Lorraine between '94 and 2010, Daybreak and Lorraine.

23 September 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Kate Hudson enjoyed an early morning selfie with presenter Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain earlier today (September 23).

The 35-year-old Us actress joined Reid on the sofa for a chat about her latest movie - Zach Braff's Garden State follow-up Wish I Was Here - and to discuss the parenting tips she learned from mother Goldie Hawn.

Reid then tweeted about her meeting with the Hollywood star and enthused: "Kate Hudson is lovely - she says that when she needs a moment of joy, she goes dancing."

Hudson also appeared on Alan Carr's Chatty Man last week as part of the film's current promotional trail, and revealed that she and mother Hawn "can see dead people", going on to describe a ghostly encounter and claim that she possesses a "fifth energy".

Meanwhile, broadcaster Reid shared a selfie with actor Tom Cruise earlier this year while she attended the »

Good Morning Britain one month on: Is the breakfast show doomed?

29 May 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Judging a breakfast show on its ratings alone is always dangerous.

Watching breakfast TV is a habit and it has to fit into our busy morning schedules, so a slight change to the format can mean that our 10-minute breakfast break with our corn flakes and the telly suddenly coincides with the weather and we'll probably switch channels or even switch off altogether.

Viewers look for familiarity, comfort and something easily digestible in the mornings. BBC Breakfast has nailed all three of these traits over the last five years and for that reason, ITV has been floundering to match them in the early morning ratings war.

GMTV had grown tired and grey, and Daybreak was an ugly explosion of colour and dreadful decisions. The channel's latest attempt to wrestle back viewers, Good Morning Britain, opened with lukewarm reviews one month ago and the ratings have been dropping ever since.

But are the problems terminal? »

Adrian Chiles on Good Morning Britain: 'It needs to be given time'

15 May 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Adrian Chiles has wished the presenters of Good Morning Britain success.

The 47-year-old, who previously presented Daybreak alongside Christine Bleakley, said that the new breakfast show could do well if given a chance, reports The Mirror.

He commented: "They just have to stick to their guns. It is a perfectly good show now - it was a perfectly good show when we left. It wasn't getting the audience so they changed it.

"They are good broadcasters and they will find a way. It seems to be national sport to give it a bloody kicking, and having been on the end of that, it is no fun.

"I am not enjoying watching them suffer now. They have just got to stick to it and they will be fine. It will come round. It just needs to be given time, and it is difficult in the current climate."

Adrian Chiles: knocking Good Morning Britain is a 'national sport' | Media Monkey

15 May 2014 3:54 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Presenter says he 'has not slept properly' since the Daybreak disaster and wishes new ITV breakfast team good luck

Having fronted ITV's failed Daybreak with Christine Bleakley two years ago, Adrian Chiles has more right than most to comment on its successor Good Morning Britain. The presenter tells the Mirror that the new "national sport" is giving ITV breakfast shows a "bloody kicking", adding: They just have to stick to their guns. It is a perfectly good show now, it was a perfectly good show when we left. It wasnt getting the audience so they changed it. They are good broadcasters and they will find a way.

Good Morning Britain review: Steady start for ITV's Us-style breakfast TV

28 April 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Well, it's definitely better than Daybreak.

It might not be the highest praise ever heaped on a breakfast TV show, but ITV's big cheeses will probably be breathing a sigh of relief this afternoon that they haven't found themselves another laughable turkey.

Good Morning Britain: Reactions and reviews round-up

Good Morning Britain launch: As it happens - Live Blog

Despite numerous revamps and hosts, Daybreak was doomed from its opening show, which failed to match the hype and was an uncomfortable hybrid of its predecessor GMTV, ITV's fierce rival BBC Breakfast and most oddly of all, The One Show.

Good Morning Britain's launch has, deliberately, been much more low key. The tabloids have been fed some quotes from Susanna Reid and her poaching from the BBC gave the Daily Mail plenty more reasons to ogle at her "pins", but the show hasn't suffered from the same pre-debut hullabaloo »

Good Morning Britain: Reactions and reviews round-up

28 April 2014 5:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

ITV launched its latest attempt in the breakfast TV war earlier today (April 28), with Good Morning Britain landing on our screens.

Susanna Reid, Ben Shephard, Sean Fletcher and Charlotte Hawkins co-hosted the brand new format, following Daybreak's end on Friday. But how well did they fare?

Most of the early reviews appear to be largely positive, with most people commenting on its similarity with Us morning show Good Morning America. Digital Spy has compiled a round-up of reviews and reactions from around the web below:

Critic Reviews

Alex Fletcher - Digital Spy

"The new 'serious news' format for Good Morning Britain feels like it's having to battle with ITV's natural lean towards fluff. The presentation of 'One Direction talking loves and relationships' as breaking news undermines a lot of the hard work they're putting in elsewhere. Do ITV really believe we can't absorb some serious news in the morning »

Good Morning Britain review: did ITV do well?

28 April 2014 4:31 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The country finally woke up to ITV's much-heralded revamp of its breakfast show in which Susanna Reid proved herself to be the genre's most natural presenter

Good Morning Britain: the Twitter reaction

Why we should bring back The Big Breakfast

Bruised by the disastrous debut of Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley as the presenting duo of its previous breakfast show, Daybreak, ITV had announced that its latest revamp of the format, Good Morning Britain, would be what media jargon calls a "soft launch". But, while it's quite easy to convince viewers not to get too excited, it's hard to persuade the media to look away especially if the show's star signing, Susanna Reid, is on the front of the week's listings magazines.

Unlike Bleakley, who had made her telly reputation at sunset, Reid is a sunrise specialist, with years of service on BBC Breakfast before a stint on Strictly Come Dancing »

ITV's Good Morning Britain launches: the Twitter reaction

How viewers from Kay Burley to Keith Lemon reacted to the all-new breakfast show and Susanna Reid's desk-based role

Fresh start or pointless revamp? Twitter users were divided in their opinions on ITV's new breakfast show on Monday morning.

Holly Willoughby, presenter of ITV's Suprise Surprise, got in quickly:

Good Morning Britain is looking rather lovely... Good morning y'all! Xxx #goodmorningbritain

Breakfast TV has come a long way since I covered the launch of GMTV on Jan 1 1993. Impressive first half hour for @Gmb

Good Morning Britain: 30 mins of slick, fast paced news. Then Andi Peters, market traders and cash prizes. ITV just can't help themselves

Just watching Good Morning Britain ... there's so much going on I need a little lie down.

@KayBurley I've just counted and I think you're the only TV presenter in Britain not co-hosting it

Good Morning Britain launch as it happens: Live Blog

Goodbye Daybreak. Good morning, erm, Good Morning Britain.

ITV's latest attempt to revive their breakfast schedules and make a dent in the ratings of their fierce rivals at BBC Breakfast comes in the shape of four familiar faces from morning television.

Sky's Sean Fletcher and Charlotte Hawkins, former GMTV host and all round good egg Ben Shephard and the star attraction, who ITV no doubt hope is the jewel in their crown, Susanna Reid.

Poached from the BBC and fresh from a successful run on Strictly Come Dancing, ITV are hoping she's the perfect mix of sharp journalism and warm presenting. Just don't say the words Christine or Bleakley.

Will Good Morning Britain be ITV breakfast's biggest hit since Roland Rat? Or have we got another Daybreak disaster on our hands?

From 6am on Monday (April 28) morning we'll be live-blogging the launch and trying to avoid dropping ketchup from our bacon sandwich on our keyboard. »

Broadcaster turns to former BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid and Us breakfast show format to boost popularity

ITV will usher in a new dawn for its breakfast show on Monday when it unveils Good Morning Britain, the replacement for its catastrophic Daybreak programme, which will feature former BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid.

The broadcaster hopes Reid, a runnerup on last year's Strictly Come Dancing, fares better than its last big money signings from the BBC, Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley.

Daybreak ends: ITV's morning show waves goodbye

25 April 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

ITV's morning show Daybreak aired its final edition this morning (April 25).

Aled Jones co-hosted the final instalment with Kate Garraway, ahead of the launch of Good Morning Britain on Monday.

Good Morning Britain co-host Ben Shephard also joined the presenters to show viewers the set of his upcoming show.

"Good luck to Ben and the whole team actually," said Jones. "I'll be watching definitely."

Jones will begin hosting his new ITV morning show Weekend tomorrow at 8.30am. It will also air on Sundays at the same time.

Garraway added: "We don't have to miss you at all, do we? We don't have to get lovey dovey or anything."

The pair then embraced for a hug, before saying goodbye to the show for good.

Daybreak launched back in 2010, with hosts Christine Bleakley and Adrian Chiles. However, due to disappointing ratings, it was revamped in 2012 with new hosts Lorraine Kelly and Jones. »

Good Morning Britain: Five ways ITV's new breakfast show can avoid a Daybreak-style death

22 April 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

ITV may have poached Susanna Reid from the BBC to host its new breakfast show starting on Monday, but we've seen this tactic fail before

Ever since ITV lost its nerve and refreshed GMTV in 2009, it's been restlessly spinning through endless variations on the breakfast theme. When the final incarnation of GMTV with Emma Crosby didn't work, we got Purple Daybreak with Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley. When this pairing turned out to be the most miserable on morning telly, we got Yellow Daybreak with Lorraine Kelly and Aled Jones. Now, as of Monday, the keys have been handed to Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard. But can Good Morning Britain beat the odds and succeed? Here are five pieces of my ever-fruitful advice, producers, if you're listening:

Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard in first Good Morning Britain photos

22 April 2014 3:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard have appeared in the first promo shots for Good Morning Britain.

Former BBC Breakfast co-host Reid has made the leap to ITV for its upcoming morning show, which will replace Daybreak from Monday, April 28.

Charlotte Hawkins and Sean Fletcher will also present the show, from 6am to 8.30am each weekday.

It will be broadcast live from London Television Centre on London's Southbank.

Reid has told The Mirror that she will not find her new job as scary as taking part in Strictly Come Dancing last year.

"When you have done Strictly Come Dancing live on a Saturday night in front of millions, never can I be that nervous again," she said.

She added: "I have had a fabulous two decades at the BBC but ITV offered me a fantastic opportunity. It's not often in your career you get the opportunity to build something new that »

Made in Chelsea's Spencer Matthews: 'The show can get a bit incestuous'

7 April 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Spencer Matthews has described the cast of Made in Chelsea as "incestuous".

The scripted reality star told ITV's Daybreak that it can get somewhat awkward filming the E4 show with so many former partners.

"It can be a bit incestuous, can't it?" he said. "But the cast is ever-growing and I'm sure we'll always have room in which to expand."

Matthews has previously been romantically involved with the likes of Caggie Dunlop, Louise Thompson and Lucy Watson on the show, among others.

The cad also played down misconceptions of the cast's real private lives outside of the show, saying: "In order to create an entertainment programme, you've got to focus on things which perhaps might be aspirational to certain people.

"We don't just roll around in Bentleys drinking champagne all day, otherwise we'd be fairly unproductive."

Louise Thompson and Cheska Hull also appeared on Daybreak to promote the latest series, »

Ky jelly, grenades & the police: Story time with Off Their Rockers

6 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Now, if you caught the first series of Off Their Rockers, you'll know what it's all about - older people playing pranks. Which is actually very, very entertaining indeed. And it turns out that the stars are just as mischievous in real life!

Digital Spy caught up with Sonia Elliman, Seb Craig and Rosemary Macvie - and when their fellow Rocker Rosie Bannister wasn't texting them getting them to "say hello to Aled Jones" on Daybreak - they gave us a story time like no other we've ever had. Read on for tales of Ky Jelly, pop concerts, hand grenades, catching cheaters, people calling the cops and much more...

Once upon a time... Sonia interrupted a pop concert.

Judy Murray coy over Strictly Come Dancing rumours

2 April 2014 10:10 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Judy Murray has not ruled out that she will appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

The mother of professional tennis player Andy Murray sat down with Daybreak, but remained coy over the possibility of her participation on the dancing competition.

"It's a good way of keeping fit," the 54-year-old joked. "Well I absolutely love that show, I can't say that I'm a dancer I'd say that I'm more of an armchair dancer."

Murray also spoke about her sons Andy and Jamie and their childhood games.

"We used to put cereal boxes across the kitchen floor, the lino, [get a] ping pong ball and a couple of biscuit tin lids and you can actually play ping pong table tennis on the floor… or [we'd play games] knocking balloons over the sofa," she revealed.

Several stars have already expressed interested in joining Strictly Come Dancing, including Joey Essex and Joe McElderry.

Meanwhile, Sharon Osbourne's son Jack has »
