Lorraine Kelly has given fans a glimpse into what they didn’t see as she posed on the Bafta TV Awards red carpet.

The daytime TV titan, 64, oozed sophistication as she posed on the carpet tonight, wearing an expensive golden gown with button detailing.

However, it was the buttons that proved an issue.

Moments before she was due to head to the glitzy ceremony, the Scottish star required help squeezing into her dress – luckily, daughter Rosie was on standby.

In a video shared to Rosie’s Instagram Story, Lorraine can be seen in a hilarious state, lying face-down on the sofa as her loved ones scrambled to fasten her up.

Joking that her adorable pooch was also keen to help with styling duties, Rosie captioned her video: ‘Nailed the button technique and even Ruby helped’, also adding a dancing emoji and tagging a bridal shop called @sassiholfordbridal.

Thankfully, there were no major wardrobe disasters as Lorraine hit the carpet, having pulled up with her only daughter – who is pregnant with her first child – by her side for a special occasion.

During this year’s ceremony, Lorraine was honoured for her lengthy services to broadcasting.

The beloved host was presented with the special award by Succession star Brian Cox.

She paid tribute to her husband Steve and their daughter as she collected her trophy.

Lorraine also urged those from working-class backgrounds to not ‘pull up the ladder’, allowing people from different backgrounds to break into the TV industry.

Having been hailed as the ‘Queen of daytime TV’, Lorraine began in her speech: ‘I suppose if I’ve learned anything at all over the past 40 years, it’s what’s the point of having all that experience if you don’t actually share it, and if you don’t actually pass it on, and help other people.

‘So I would just say don’t pull up the ladder, please make it possible for kids like me from my background, from a very working-class Glasgow background, rise the same from Dundee.

‘We’ve had amazing opportunities, but I just want everyone to have those opportunities the same that we did.’

It comes after she said it is now ‘almost impossible’ for those from working-class backgrounds to break into the industry, calling for more opportunities outside of London – having been told she would never make it on the screen due to her Scottish accent.

Lorraine went on to thank her mother and father for her ‘work ethic’, as well as her ‘fantastic’ partner and child.

‘And my daughter Rosie, who is working on the most exciting production. She’s having a baby and making us grandparents and I’m so proud – this means the world,’ she said of the award.

‘I’m on the telly tomorrow but I’m going to celebrate tonight,’ Kelly added.

Scottish actor Brian described Lorraine as having ‘infectious humour, boundless enthusiasm and genuine, genuine kindness’.

The host said she was ‘honoured’ that viewers of the show ‘think of me as a pal – they think of me as their friend’.

‘I never, ever, take it for granted that so many people trust me with their stories,’ she said.

Now one of television’s most recognisable faces, Lorraine was told of her Bafta award live on air on March 25 by Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid during her weekday show.

She was recognised for her ‘outstanding contribution’ over her 40-year career in broadcasting since she joined TV-am in 1984.

Previous names to win the special award include Clare Balding, Idris Elba and Sir Lenny Henry.

Speaking of her award, the soon-to-be grandmother said with glee: ‘Finding out on-air this morning was a massive surprise – what an honour to the recipient of the Bafta Special Award.

‘A huge thanks to everybody I’ve worked with on-screen and behind the scenes over the years. The people who make daytime TV are very special people.

‘Now I have to go and look for a showstopping frock to wear to the Television Awards on 12th May!’
