Lorraine Kelly admitted she had the ‘biggest crush’ on a guest who appeared on her show.
The Glasgow born TV star gushed over actor Sam Neill as he spoke about his new book on her talk show.
The 63-year-old confessed to her 740.5k followers on Twitter that she has the hots for the “fine fella”.
She posted: “THE BIGGEST CRUSH ON THIS FINE FELLA”

Lorraine shared the admission alongside a clip of her interviewing the 75-year-old New Zealand actor, who is best known for his role as palaeontologist Alan Grant in the science-fiction film series Jurassic Park.
He was promoting his new book ‘Did I Ever Tell You This?’ which he wrote after being diagnosed with cancer.
While battling stage three angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, a rare type of blood cancer, he turned to writing to fill his time and act as therapy, creating the book.
Now he is in remission and appeared on Lorraines hit show to tell her he was in “tip top health” and is back to work next week.
She hailed his book as “very funny” and hailed his creative talent shining through even when he was very ill.
We previously reported how during the interview, Neill also discussed his audition for James Bond before Pierce Brosnan landed the role.
He said: “I was bullied into it by my agent at the time. I found myself auditioning for a part I never wanted to do, because no one wants to be the James Bond that no one likes – that’s an unenviable position.
“The other thing was my friend Pierce Brosnan wanted it and I wanted him to get it.”
