The ITV presenter has spoken out amid speculation Piers could return to the channel’s breakfast display following making an abrupt exit previously this year.
Talking to The Sun, Lorraine mentioned: “He will be back in some shape or form, I have no question. I know nothing at all, but hardly ever depend him out of nearly anything.
Despite Piers’ controversial general public profile, Lorraine maintains he is truly a big softie.
She explained: “I have a ton of time for him. He’s pretty kind to me. He goes ridiculous when I say this – he does not like me doing it – but he’s in fact a truly great dude.
“He claims to me ‘will you stop stating that I’m a nice human being due to the fact it’s really bad for my brand’. That can make me want to do it even a lot more!”
