Lorraine Kelly had mentioned Yorkshire when she referenced a recent sighting of Tom Cruise as he films the latest Mission Impossible movie. As she discussed the sighting, viewers noticed Yorkshire was misspelled on the graphics. Embarrassed by the mistake, Lorraine apologised to fans for the slip-up and joked the person responsible would be scolded.
Returning from an advert break, Lorraine told viewers: “We’re going to go over to Andi in just a minute.
“I have to say a huge apology to everybody in Yorkshire because we spelt it wrong.
“The person who spelt it wrong will of course be flogged.”
“No, it was just a slip of the type writer,” the host continued a little flustered.

Viewer Ben wrote to Lorraine on Twitter: “Your clock is wrong on the programme!”
Unfortunately for Ben, he did not realise has watching a repeat of Lorraine an hour after the episode was first broadcast.
Lorraine quickly replied as she shut down the complaint in view of her 634,000 followed: “I think you may find you are watching ITV plus one Ben x.”
Responding, Ben admitted to the Daily Record: “Mortified is not the word. I actually sent them another message to apologise.
