Lorraine Kelly has shocked a few of her fans after it came to light that her full name isn't, well, Lorraine Kelly.

The TV presenter took to social media to tell her followers that she had her Oxford jab against coronavirus.

Posting a photo of herself in a face mask holding up the vaccination card, as proof of the jab, fans noticed that the top of the card showed off her real name.

The post was captioned, "Vaccinated! So relieved! Easy peasy - didn’t feel a thing - thanks so much to all the cheery volunteers and NHS staff who made it SO simple!

"Please please get vaccinated!! We are so lucky to have the opportunity Xxx".

However lots of her followers noticed that Lorraine's surname is actually Smith.

"I had no idea your current surname was Smith," wrote one of her followers.

Someone else commented, "Genuinely never even thought about you having a surname until I seen this".

And another fan of the 61-year-old tweeted, "Lorraine Smith lol how original".

Lorraine's responded to the comment and said, "Smith is my married name."

Who knew, ey?

Lorraine has been married to her husband - TV cameraman Steve Smith - since 1992 and it turns out Kelly is her maiden name.

The TV presenter also announced on her Instagram account that she had the vaccine and her full name now seems very obvious - as it is stated in her Instagram handle.

In other TV news, and continuing to keep it real, Vicky Pattison recently revealed the reason why she left Geordie Shore.

She opened up to guest star Georgia Kousoulou on her podcast and said, "For me, I had to leave Geordie Shore because the format didn't grow.

"For some people that's their reality, and that's absolutely fine, but for me I definitely wanted something different".

She has previously said there were certain things that she wanted to, including reading a book, but they weren't "on-brand" so she wasn't allowed to do them while filming.
