During Good Morning Britain, hosts Ed Balls and Kate Garraway shared the news after Lorraine failed to show up for their mid-show crossover.
Instead, ITV favourite Ranvir Singh was sat in the host's seat and revealed that she had been rushed into work to help out ITV bosses.
“I got a call from the editor at 7.18 and I was on the train at 7.30," she revealed before wishing Lorraine well.
Ed and Kate also confirmed Lorraine was forced off her show after she was “suddenly attacked” by an unknown illness.
Taking to Twitter, Lorraine also confirmed she was unwell with a "hideous" bug and was gutted to miss interviewing Queen frontman Adam Lambert.
“When you have to be sent home from work early in the morning because you are suddenly attacked by a hideous bug and were looking forward to interviewing @adamlambert THAT! Beyond disappointed but imagine if I had infected him !!!!!!” she tweeted.
Plenty of Lorraine’s fans and showbiz pals quickly sent their well wishes and support.
