The ITV favourite later addressed her “emotional morning” on Instagram, before going home to reunite with her parents for the first time since the UK went into lockdown.

The toughest thing.

The television veteran took to Instagram to share a clip of today’s show, as she looked back on their time working throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

She started by saying: “That was lovely, wasn’t it? What a time it’s been!

“You know the toughest thing is, we can’t see the ones that we love,” to which Mark replied: “I know, I know.”

Getting very emotional about not being able to see her family, she continued: “Because you’re going up to see your mum.”

While Mark was wiping away his tears, the presenter added: “I made you go.”

“I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to give you a hug so much,” he responded.

“It’s been a very odd time but you really have got everyone through it.”

Mark continued: “It’s been amazing. Thank you.”

Lorraine reshared the clip online with her 360,000 Instagram followers, which was first posted by the programme’s official account, to thank all of her viewers for tuning in to watch.

The mother-of-one captioned the post: “Well that was very emotional this morning!
