Dr Hilary asked Lorraine whether or not she was able to have a drink over the festive period and she confirmed she did, saying: "Yes, you said it was alright to have one or two.

Lorraine then added: "I was actually very, very well behaved and I’m fine and I’m doing lots of different exercises, I’m getting there. How amazing is keyhole surgery? It’s extraordinary."
