Celebrity Big Brother 2024 spoilers follow.

Celebrity Big Brother star Fern Britton got mistaken for Lorraine Kelly in a hilarious mix-up from the show.

This week's celebrity house guest Oti Mabuse shared the awkward blunder during Tuesday's (March 5) episode of Late & Live, which saw Lauren Simon confuse the two authors.

In the clip, The Real Housewives of Cheshire star was seen asking Fern about Lorraine's recent appearance on James Martin's Saturday Morning, where she promoted her new book The Island Swimmer.

"I think I saw you, was it you that's written a book with um, what's the chef called, Martin, I'm sure it was you," said Lauren, to which Fern replied: "No, I write novels."

"I'm sure it was you, something to do with diving and the sea, not you?" Lauren continued. "Diving and the sea?" said a confused Fern, before realising who Lauren meant: "Oh no, that's Lorraine Kelly!"

Back in the studio, Late & Live guest Yinka Bokinni commented on Fern and Lorraine's lack of similarities, saying: "They look nothing alike, they're not even from the same place!"

"I know! It is bonkers, but to be fair there are worse morning TV presenters to be confused with," added host AJ Odudu.

Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, Bokinni previously described the ITV2 spin-off show as "beautiful chaos".

"I think the show's chaotic, it's the beauty of organised chaos. I think that's the wonderful thing about Big Brother," she said. "It's a rare opportunity to be able to do something so fun — and at night, so you're not too worried about what you're saying, in terms of whether you're a bit of a pottymouth."

Celebrity Big Brother airs Sundays through Fridays at 9pm on ITV1 and ITV Hub, followed by Late & Live on ITV2 immediately following each new episode.
