Lorraine fans fume over 'awful' habit which distracted fans from ITV show
Lorraine fans complained they had been distracted by an "awful" habit that made the ITV programme difficult to watch.On Monday's show (March 14), the Scottish host, 62, was joined by fashion presenter Mark Heyes and Showbiz reporter Ria Hebden, 39, to discuss the BAFTAs on Sunday.However, viewers all had the same thing to say as they fumed that the trio kept talking over each over, making the segment tough to watch at times.Taking to Twitter, fans commented: "#lorraine Jesus can they all stop talking over each other."A second person echoed: "Lorraine the usual cacophony that ensues when three people all talk at once and no one listens to any of them.""Is she actually going to interview him, rather than just talk at him #Lorraine," fumed a third.While a fourth raged: "Ffs - do three people all have to talk at the same time #lorraine."Which was met with a similar response: "Literally just tweeted the same thing. It was awful."Lorraine may not have received glowing feedback for the BAFTAs segment but she has instead recently been praised for her epic weight loss.Through regular exercise and portion control, Lorraine has managed to drop two dress sizes - going from a 14 to a size 10.Just last week, the TV star took to her personal Instagram page to document that she'd lost a further two pounds.Sharing a smiley snap of herself alongside her coach, she penned: "HURRAH!!! Thank you @ww.uk and @wwsuzystirfry - making it so easy and fun!!"The ITV host also included a glowing statement from her health instructor Suzy Stirfry which read: "And loving support from fellow @ww.uk Posted @withregram.

Masked Singer UK's Robobunny identity 'uncovered' by ITV star as they point out clue
Ria Hebden has claimed The Masked Singer's Robobunny is Westlife's Mark Feehily.Ria, 39, said several clues Robobunny was Mark were the police badge, cowboy boots and a builders' hat he wears - because Westlife's World of Our Own music video was police themed and the group once tried to make it as country singers.Ria, who is known for appearing on TV programmes including Lorraine and This Morning, said: "This week I've put my detective hat on and we're trying to work out who Robobunny might be."There's a huge buzz online around Mark Feehily from Westlife and so I've been looking at some of the clues."From the VT we've got three major clues: a police badge, cowboy boots and a builders' hat."Could the police badge be a nod to Westlife's World of Our Own pop video? Because you'll remember that was police themed."Looking at the cowboy boots, Westlife did a documentary back in 2003 called 'Can Westlife Cut It?' where they went to Nashville to try and make it as country singers."With the builders' hat, could this link to when Westlife were battling it out against Bob the Builder in the charts and they missed out?"Lorraine was then left stunned after she pointed out at the back of Robobunny's suite there's a QR code which takes you to a website where it says 'my royal barcode is 200019992003' - the years when Westlife performed at the Royal Variety Performance."A gobsmacked replied: "Stop it! Wow."She added: "I think that is astonishing detective work, I take my hat off to you - that is incredible!"Viewers also rushed to Twitter to tell how they thought they were “convinced” they had worked out the celebrity behind the mask after spotting the barcode clue.Viewers swarmed to Twitter to share their thoughts on the possible clue
