A personalised number plate for a personable Lorraine Kelly
Posted on January 28, 2012 by Number Plates
One of the oldest honours systems in the world is the UK’s Honors System. Evolving over 650 years, it recognises merit, gallantry and service. The Honours List are published twice a year. The first time is the New Year’s List and then in mid-June to celebrate The Queen’s official birthday.
Nearly 1,000 people were recognised for their achievements and service to the United Kingdom on the recent 2012 New Year’s Honours List. The Honours are given to people from all walks of life and all sections of society who have a made a difference to their community.
On the list this year was Lorraine Kelly, the TV celebrity who has been on our breakfast screens since the 1980s.
It’s often hard to get a present for a friend or family member at Christmas time or their birthday. But what do you get someone who has just been honoured on the Honours List? Something unique, something as classic and personal – just like Lorraine herself.
And what better present can you get than her own personalised number plate – LKE 11Y.
Personalised Number Plates
Personalised number plates are a great gift – they show off the individuality of the person who owns a number plate. It’s difficult to personalise a car so the next best thing is to personalise the number plate.
Many people buy a private number plate to show their name, such as Lord Alan Sugar who drives a car with the number plate AMS1.
Others prefer to drive around with a personalised plate that means something to them and not the general public.
However, when someone gets a knighthood like Lorraine Kelly, the Queen of morning time TV, then she needs her own personalised number plate with her own name on it.
Lets take a minute to celebrate Lorraine. A broadcaster, TV presenter, journalist and actress hailing from Scotland, she has been a funny and pleasant presence in our kitchens and sitting-rooms since the early 1980s.
Breakfast time TV wouldn’t be the same without her. She was the main presenter of Tvam’s ‘Good Morning Britain’ back in 1983 which was one of the UK’s original breakfast television news programmes.
She is best known for presenting GMTV with Eamon Holmes and had several shows of her own. Since 2010, she has an hour long show from 8.30am-9.30am, Monday to Thursday simply called ‘Lorraine’ on ITV. It’s her personable approach to life, style, food and her celebrity guests that appeal to the nation. Not afraid to poke fun at herself, her honest and down to earth style makes her an entertaining and popular presence in British homes.
However, she started her career as a journalist and reporter and in her early journalism career covered such heartbreaking tragedies as the terrorist plane crash at Lockerbie and the shooting at Dunblane.
Lorraine is well-deserving of her award on the Honours List. For anyone who wants to buy her a gift, then the personalised number plate of LKE 11Y is the perfect way to celebrate her continued success.
