She’s standing in for the regular host Lorraine Kelly this week.
And Cat Deeley was sure to pull out all the stops for her stand-in stint as she took to screens looking flawless in a hot pink Versace dress on Thursday.
The beloved TV presenter, 44, showed her nerves as she shared a video on Instagram, in which she sauntered up the stairs ahead of the episode of Lorraine and said: ‘This is where I trip on the top step by the way’.

The blonde bombshell looked radiant in the fuchsia dress as she prepared for her presenting duties with a large notebook under her arm.
She wore her caramel tresses in loose waves and accessorised the bright ensemble with a pair of dinky hoop earrings.
Keeping her make-up minimal for the filming, Cat accentuated her natural beauty with a slick of light pink lipstick and a touch of mascara.

Cat’s stint standing in for Lorraine during the Easter break marks her return to the UK after 14 years living in the US.
The presenter will be filling in for the veteran broadcaster for five shows this week, and has gushed that she’s looking forward to reuniting with some ‘old friends’ on the chat show.
Speaking to The Mirror, Cat said: ‘I’m so happy to be back at ITV for the coming week and looking forward to meeting some people I’ve wanted to interview for sometime and also welcoming some old friends on air.’

During Wednesday’s show, Cat spoke with several stars including actress Jessica Hynes, Small Axes star Shaun Parkes and singer Beverley Knight.
And on Tuesday, Cat caught up with her former SM:TV Live sketch The Further Adventures Of Cat The Dog co-star Louise Redknapp.
The old friends discussed Louise’s recent appearance on the Masked Dancer, which came to an end on Sunday night when she was unmasked.
Louise appeared on the show in a Flamingo costume and her pal Cat admitted she had no idea that it was Louise underneath the mask.

Cat said: ‘I didn’t realise it was you because the costume was so tall.’
Louise continued: ‘I was 6ft for one evening on TV. They kept on guessing really tall women. But it was nice getting out after lockdown and dancing, I felt I hadn’t expressed anything for so many months it was lovely.’
Cat then added: ‘I was expecting you to sing when you took the mask off. While Louise said: ‘I kept forgetting myself and nearly did [start singing].’
Birmingham-born Cat moved back to the UK with her family in 2020 after living happily in Los Angeles for over a decade.
Cat and her comedian husband Patrick Kielty, 50, put their Beverly Hills mansion on the market for $4.9 million (£3.8 million), in August 2020, and are now living in north London with their two sons Milo, five, and James, two.
Cat and television host Patrick tied the knot in September 2012 following a long-term relationship.
The pair had been friends for years before their friendship turned to romance after first striking up a bond while co-hosting Fame Academy back in 2002.

The blonde revealed the ‘catalyst’ for the family’s departure was the terrifying moment Patrick and their eldest son narrowly avoided a public shooting incident at the Century City Mall.
Speaking on the Made By Mammas podcast in December, the Fame Academy star said: ‘It was always kind of in our minds that we would, at some stage or another you know, come back.
‘The main factor was friends and family because we will never get this time back again.’
