Lorraine Kelly was understandably overcome with emotion as she was reunited with her daughter in Singapore via video link on Good Morning Britain today.

The TV presenter was speaking to Rosie, 24, on the ITV breakfast show about Singapore's strict new coronavirus measures which have been implemented to protect the population.

Rosie - working in public relations in Singapore - revealed that medics are taking people's temperature on the street, explaining: "It started with temperature checks, then everyone had to work from home, then there was a travel ban.

"People here are generally very well behaved as the government here is really strict so if you are working or caught being out, you get a £10,000 fine or six months in jail."

Towards the end of their discussion, Lorraine become a little choked up as she prepared to say goodbye.

"It's so good to talk to you baby, it's so good to see your wee face - I do miss you," Lorraine said.

"I know," Rosie replied, "but we'll talk later."

Co-host Dr Hilary thanked Rosie for joining them, before adding: "I'm sure you'll both catch up with the personal stuff later."

"We will," a visibly emotional Lorraine responded. "Stay safe, love," she told Rosie.

Meanwhile back in March, ITV confirmed daytime shows Lorraine and Loose Women will cease filming due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The broadcaster said it had taken the decision in an attempt to minimise the number of staff travelling in and out of the studios.

A spokesperson said: "ITV Daytime has taken the decision to stop broadcasting Lorraine and Loose Women live from Monday 23rd March.

"We're focusing our efforts on providing viewers the latest news on the rapidly changing situation which aims to offer some stability and continuity in all our lives whilst so many of us are at home right now

"That’s why we have taken this tough decision to protect our GMB News programme in the morning and keep This Morning on air for as long as possible."

Good Morning Britain airs on weekday mornings on ITV.
