Lorraine: My bikini snaps are all real

TV presenter Lorraine Kelly has said she insisted her recent bikini photos not be photoshopped or altered in any way.

Kelly (55) posed in a floral bikini to launch Lorraine's Bikini Promise campaign.

The campaign aims to encourage women to follow a five-week plan to make them fit and healthy and give them confidence to wear a bikini, no matter their age, shape or size.

The Scottish journalist said: "Oh my goodness me, I was very nervous about it, I really was.

"But I thought, 'I'm 55, I've got a tummy, I've got a big scar on my leg. If I can do it, anyone can do it'.

"Also, it's really funny because the photographer said, 'Oh, we can smooth all of that out and we can make your waist smaller', and I'm like, 'No, we can't, it's got to be not touched up because that's what's it's all about, it's got to be real'".
