This then caused Lorraine to explain: "My Rosie has got a cold and she's in Singapore as you know.

"She's self-isolating right now."

Rosie, 25, has been travelling and working abroad since she graduated with a degree in journalism back in 2016, and is currently in Singapore, which is one of the coronavirus hot spots.

Lorraine revealed that "My husband Steve has gone over to see Rosie this morning and he said the airport is empty. It's the best time to travel."

She and her mum have a very close relationship and talk about "everything under the sun".

Lorraine shares Rosie with husband Steve Smith who she married in 1992.
