Throughout 35 years on television Lorraine Kelly has spoken to the likes of Will Smith, George Clooney and Victoria Beckham, but for her there is one guest who stood out above the rest.

Lorraine, 63, began presenting in the 80s and over the course of her career has worked on shows including Good Morning Britain, GMTV, This Morning and, of course, Lorraine.

Her chat show as we know it today began airing in 2010 and allowed her to continue interviewing a whole range of guests, including film stars and singers, as well as offering up fashion advice and home tips.

The presenter took a break this week and allowed Strictly Come Dancing star Ranvir Singh to take the reins, but as we head into a new year she reflected with Closer Magazine on her favourite guest from over the years.

The chosen guest is someone who's known for having it all - talent, humour and charm. He can sing, dance and act, and Lorraine revealed that having him around makes her feel leagues above everyone else.

Of course, it was none other than The Greatest Showman star Hugh Jackman.

Discussing her encounters with the Wolverine actor, Lorraine said: “He’s always been my favourite guest [on the show]. He makes you feel like you are the most special person in the world. I know he does it to everyone, but I don’t care!”

Jackman appears to have succeeded in winning Lorraine's heart after she previously revealed her adoration for some other interviewees in 2008, before she kicked off the show Lorraine.

When she was working as a presenter on LK Today, Lorraine admitted to having a soft spot for both George Clooney and Will Smith, who she described at the time as 'adorable'.

“I remember saying to Will after I’d interviewed him: ‘Thank you so much. I wish every A-lister was like you.’ I honestly could have kissed him because I thought he had such a brilliant attitude," she said.

Other guests seemingly didn't go down so well with Lorraine, who revealed she felt 'disappointed' upon meeting Star Wars actor Harrison Ford because he came across 'a bit grumpy'.

Kelly's revelation of her new favourite guest comes as she announced the return of her What If podcast, which she co-hosts with her daughter, Rosie.

The pair have already produced three series of the show, and are set to return with more 'in-depth conversations' with guests.
