LORRAINE Kelly reckons there is no point to exercise unless you love it - though she's not sure if football is ticking all her boxes right now.
The morning telly queen has slimmed down and toned up recently thanks to zumba classes and she believes everyone should keep fit in a way they enjoy.
 Lorraine who was a host at the recent Sunday Post Broons awards in Glasgow's Grand Central Hotel said: "I have lost weight and toned up doing zumba and found an amazing instructor Maxine Jones who helps me. I go to two classes a week and love it . You have to find exercise you love otherwise there is no point and you will not do it."
 Lorraine might be based in London every week but she admits she comes back to Scotland most weekends now - sometimes to watch her beloved Scots footie team play.
She said: "I'm just doing the show and enjoying myself and just love it. I always come home at the weekends, almost every weekend, usually to see Dundee United which at the moment is not doing great but will get better. The only way is up when you're at the bottom".


WEDDING Crashers and Panic Room star Dwight Yoakam was in fine fettle before his gig at Glasgow's first Country 2 Country (C2C) festival - but he was no-one's mug.
 The legendary Country singer, who sported double denim onstage, joined other Nashville stars including Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town and Sam Hunt  at the fest  in Glasgow's Clyde Auditorium.
The Showbiz Lion was loitering around the city's wildest lairs when Dwight randomly came out of the five star Blytheswood Hotel .
We couldn't resist a quick video and he said he was enjoying the Scottish hospitality as he made the way to the venue from his hotel last night.
The Honky Tonk Man singer and actor, who keeps on his cowboy hat wherever he goes, also told us he always enjoyed coming to gigs in Scotland.
Dwight was presented with a traditional tartan mug by one of his fans but we're not sure if it was his cup of tea.
 He got one of his roadies to take it instead.


WATCH Marti Pellow and the rest of his bandmates chill out before their SSE Hydro gig in this video filmed in an exclusive VIP box in the venue.  
Just minutes before  audience members made their way into the gig Marti and the lads who played an emotional homecoming show for the crowd, were watching over the arena. 
The band were the first official visitors to Clydesdale Bank's unique hotspot The Vault in the SSE Hydro before their sold-out performance at the 12,000-capacity arena on Saturday. 
The Vault gives gig goers the opportunity to upgrade ordinary tickets to a red leather sofa on their own secret balcony. 
All ticket holders need to do is to post a selfie on social media using #getmeinthevault for the chance to swap their seats to the couch. 
As The Wets relaxed into the comfortable red leather sofa on their own secret balcony, they had a laugh and joke about things.Graeme Clark suggested:  "You  can even ask the Clydesdale bank if they'll give you a free bar' while Marti added: "But they are quite tight, especially with inflation."  
The first winner of #getmeinthevault was Wets fanatic Kirstie Walls from Paisley who upgraded her friends Gail Morrison, Claire Pollock, and Yvonne Redmund to the couch. 
She said: “We love the Wets, we’ve been to see them on every tour since they started out, even in Marti’s purple suit days. When we bought tickets in October we didn’t think we’d end up with our own private couch and waitress so it made the night even better. We saw Marti and the boys tweet about it before the gig and decided to take part, but we weren’t expecting to win it – the gig was absolutely brilliant and an experience we won’t forget."  
Following the Wet Wet Wet gig, music fans will get the chance access to it at all upcoming Hydro gigs including Adele, Justin Bieber and Rod Stewart.
