Lorraine Kelly’s sausage dog Christmas jumper is on sale for £15

When you think of typical icons of Christmas, you probably think of Santa, elves and reindeer. But Lorraine Kelly just proved that sausage dogs also have a worthy place in the festive line-up, in the form of a truly adorable Christmas jumper.

The 60-year-old star wore the knit for Thursday’s episode of her eponymous ITV show, teamed with a black leather skirt, causing plenty of fans on social media to ask her where she’d found the super-cute top.

‘Please tell us where your red jumper is from?’ one enquired, while a second agreed: ‘WHERE can I get the jumper you’re wearing this morning??’

If you’re among the many dog lovers who spotted Lorraine’s brilliant buy, there’s doubly good news for you: not only have we tracked it down on the rails at Marks & Spencer, it’s currently on sale with 40 per cent off.

Originally priced at £25, the embellished sequin sweater is now selling for a very reasonable £15 as Christmas Jumper Day (13 December) fast approaches.

The cosy style boasts a close-fitting round neck and ribbed trim help to keep in warmth. The M&S website only has a limited selection of sizes available, but if yours isn’t one of them, you may still be able to track it down in your local store.

All together now – daschund through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh…

Speaking to Woman magazine previously, Lorraine opened up about her favourite parts of the Christmas season – although she had a little trouble whittling them down.

When asked what she liked best about the big day, she replied: ‘EVERYTHING! I have always loved all the traditions, like putting up the tree and decorations, and leaving Santa a massive glass of malt whisky.’

‘I haven’t had any big disasters. My husband Steve does the cooking and I do the clearing up. We all need to stop stressing about Christmas and enjoy it. It’s not about presents and spending fortunes. It’s about friends and family and fun.’
