‘I’m okay, but I know myself I could do with losing a stone. I’ve gone up a few sizes.’
Nick went on to detail his own weight struggles and reassured Lorraine saying: ‘You know we have to be kind to ourselves, we all got through lockdown as best we could.’
It comes after earlier this month Lorraine wrote in her Hello! column about her weight gain, admitting that it had affected her confidence.
She shared: ‘Now like so many other people I have definitely put on more than a few pounds during this whole pandemic. It’s a combination of not being about to get to my regular exercise classes and indulging in some serious comfort eating.

‘I’ve gone up from a size ten to a size twelve, but I’m beginning to wonder if size actually does matter anymore.
‘I also know that it shouldn’t really matter what number is on the label of your clothes as long as they fit well and make you feel good, but sometimes it really can affect your confidence.’
However, she also spoke to the Mirror, where she confessed that overall she’s not concerned about the extra pounds and doesn’t even own a pair of scales.

She said that despite going from a size ten to a 12 she won’t be counting her calories and will try and shift the extra weight by taking Zumba classes and avoiding sugary snacks.
‘I am not going to beat myself up about it. I don’t have scales so I don’t know how much actual weight I have put on. I always go by how my clothes fit.
‘I don’t think calories should be counted, but I am not stressing about the extra pounds.’
She also gave a rare insight to her 29-year marriage to husband Steve Smith, revealing their sex life is ‘toddling along nicely’.

The daytime television presenter, who wed cameraman Steve in 1992, says the secret to keeping intimacy alive is ‘having confidence in yourself, adding that ‘a lot of older women can feel invisible’
The host also lauded her partner for his support when she was going through perimenopause.
She said: ‘It was absolutely horrible. I completely lost myself. My husband didn’t know what was going on. He said, “what can I do, how can I help?” It was him who said, “you have to get some help.”‘
