Lorraine Kelly taking ‘break’ from social media and says X has ‘gone a bit dark’

Lorraine Kelly will be ditching X – formally known as Twitter – for a brief period.

The ITV morning show host gave an update to her followers after she admitted she felt the platform had turned "dark" in recent weeks. She wrote: "Morning. Having a Twitter break – it's all gone a bit dark – find me on Instagram @lorrainekellysmith for mostly cute photos of my dog."

Her post appeared to have resonated with some, with people responding to her update and also liking the post. One user wrote: "Noooo don't go away Lorraine! Please stay!"

Meanwhile, another person told her to "try Threads", which is a new platform somewhat similar to X, released by Meta. A third person reminded her that "light is still out there", adding: "Just look behind the [clouds]."

Lorraine then continued to post on her Instagram as she kept up her promise to keep fans updated, but her post consisted of her sharing a Reel to her Stories.

It's unclear what happened to spark Lorraine's decision to take some time off the platform, but she had been avidly posting over the past week. She had just shared an update on a podcast she'd been on while also sharing updates from her self-titled show.

Lorraine is often sharing snippets from her show to her feed, but one thing that took a top spot on her page – and appeared on her Instagram too – was her dancing with some of her team to a viral TikTok trend.

Videos of the penguins from Madagascar has been doing the rounds online and Lorraine took the opportunity to bring in her guests to put on a performance. Lorraine led the way on Tuesday (September 19) in a gold dress.

She was joined by Dr Amir, Nancy Xu and Les Dennis – ahead of their Strictly stint – to show off some moves, and they put on a great mini-performance for the crowd as they copied the penguins.

Lorraine, while on her social media break, will continue to host her morning show on ITV at 9am, but it's likely videos will now be shared to her Instagram instead of X – though the show's account remains active.
