Cat Deeley and Louise Redknapp reminisced about their time on SM:TV Live sketch The Further Adventures Of Cat The Dog when they reunited on Lorraine on Tuesday.

TV host Cat, 43, was a mainstay on the classic ITV children's show, which debuted in 1998, with Louise, 46, making appearances as her sidekick in the sketch.

And in the sketch in question, Cat was regularly seen sporting a frizzy black wig and spectacles with her character's signature mangled teeth as she recounted her clumsy adventures alongside her more glamorous co-star.

Chuckling as she viewed clips from the show, Louise said: 'I used to catch those teeth now and again I think! There was never any judgement, I think sometimes if you mucked up as well that made the morning.

'People enjoyed the party where your wig was falling off, or I forgot what I was doing because I was laughing at you.'

Elsewhere during their reunion, Louise spoke about her reasons for writing her revealing book You've Got This: And Other Things I Wish I Had Known.

  Viewers thrilled Cat Deeley back on UK screens sitting in for Lorraine Cat Deeley is filling in for Lorraine Kelly this week on her eponymous morning show - and viewers were loving her debut. Cat, 43, is making a triumphant return to British screens after living in the US for 14 years.The star has moved back home in recent weeks, and fans were happy to have her on morning television again, where she made a name for herself in the 1990s.

'I wanted to write a bit about everything. I'm hoping there's something in the book for everybody, whether you are a mum who is hoping to get their kids into stage school, right up until the current day.'

The former Eternal star went on: 'Lockdown has been a trying time. Homeschooling and all of those things have been pretty interesting, especially if you've got teenagers. But I really wanted to talk about the mum stuff in the book.

'There are also struggles with being a mum. You struggle with the guilt, but also there's amazing times, letting your kids just be a and grow up, and learning their own ways is important.'

She said: 'The good news is that it does happen, the kisses when you get out of the car do stop, but it comes back. My eldest Charlie is nearly 17, and is very proud to give his mum a hug and a cuddle, slightly embarrassing!'

However, while the teens dote on their mother, they're far less affected by the fame she has enjoyed over the past few decades.

'To them I'm just mum,' admitted Louise. 'We see TV and music videos out and about, but when I come indoors, it's hair in a ponytail, tracksuit, shouting up the stairs for someone to come downstairs and eat the food I've cooked for them.'

However, she revealed, there is more music to come, as Louise told Cat: 'I'm currently writing in the studio, a very weird experience over Zoom. I'm writing new music most definitely, just loving doing the music as you imagine.'

She said: 'I hope I’m half as good as you Lorraine. I’m a little bit terrified I haven’t even been properly dressed from the waist done since God knows when!'

After welcoming Cat onto the show, veteran broadcaster Lorraine told her: 'I’m so glad you can do this! I think, obviously, you’ll be brilliant.'

Later in the show, Lorraine revealed that all Cat has requested for her guest-hosting gig is bananas and coffee, with Cat confirming: 'Those are my morning staples – really good, strong coffee and a ‘nana!'

Cat is filling in for the veteran broadcaster for five shows this week, and gushed she was looking forward to reuniting with some 'old friends' on the chat show.

She said in a statement: 'Lorraine has kindly entrusted me with her show while she has a break over Easter.

'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.'

It comes after Cat returned to British screens earlier this year by reuniting with her SM:TV co-hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly for a hilarious revival of their iconic sketch Chums.

And during her appearance on ITV's Lorraine on Thursday, Cat spoke about reuniting with the presenting duo, as she also disclosed her stipulations.

She recalled: 'I always said to them, don’t try and trick me with makeup and prosthetics because I will know you. They kept me completely in the dark.

'Declan was above so I never saw him and Ant wore that giant costume which they told me was the work experience guy. If I had known it was Ant in that outfit, I would have just let the fire burn.'

Reminiscing about their days on SMTV, she said: 'We always say it was the best time of our lives and we didn’t really know it at the time. I try and tell my boys now.

'Milo, my oldest one, woke up and called out for me and said, "Mum you know your brothers, why did they do that to you?" First, they’re not my brothers! I said to them, when you have to start paying for his therapy later in life…

During her time in the US, Cat hosted popular TV show So You Think You Can Dance from the second season, presenting every episode from 2006 onward.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly thwarted plans for the show's return to screens last year and this year, with the Fox series now sitting in limbo.

Discussing the logistics, Cat told Lorraine: 'There’s just no way of us making that show. It’s just not possible. We need to get people from all over the country and they need to be able to dance together.

'When I flew back here, I shot about five episodes of a Disney show and we’re still waiting to hear what’s going to happen with that. You just don’t know what’s going to happen next.

'We can be based here and the boys can go to school and see their friends and family and if I need to pop back for two weeks and then come back I can do that.'

It's thought that guests during Cat's guest-hosting stint on Lorraine will include Cat's longtime friend Louise Redknapp, as well as Stacey Solomon and EastEnders star Melanie Hill.

Cat will present Lorraine from next week beginning April 5, with Ranvir Singh set to present the following week from April 12.

Lorraine editor Victoria Kennedy added: 'Next week the lovely Cat Deeley will take to the helm of Lorraine, providing viewers at home with much-needed Easter enjoyment.

'As a huge fan of SMTV, I'm more than just a bit delighted. And of course we look forward to welcoming Ranvir back too. We've got a great lineup of Easter guests joining us.'

Cat Deeley shares a sweet clip of her sons hugging in the garden

  Cat Deeley shares a sweet clip of her sons hugging in the garden The presenter, 44, uploaded a sweet clip of her sons Milo, five, and James, two, hugging on their first day back at school after half-term on Wednesday. The presenter, 44, who is married to comedian Patrick Kielty, 50, captured the sweet moment of her children embracing each other in their uniform as they appeared excited to head back to the classroom.

Cat lived happily in Los Angeles with her husband Patrick Kielty for over 14 years. However they put their Beverly Hills mansion on the market for $4.9 million (£3.8 million), in August last year.

The couple now reside in a north London property together with their sons Milo, five, and James two, so that they can live closer to their British family.

A source told The Sun: 'Cat was discussing putting the house up for sale months ago, they didn't want to rent it out because they were considering buying a property in the UK. This is more of a permanent move.

'She is a household name, and they both made it work in LA, but Patrick gets a lot more work back home, and she could always fly back and forth when the pandemic eases up.'

The insider added that both Cat and Patrick were 'more than ready for this' as they dream of raising their children in the UK.

Last month Cat delighted fans when she reunited with Ant and Dec for a reprisal of their iconic SMTV Chums sketch on Saturday Night Takeaway.

Later in the show, Cat was hilariously duped by her pals as she unwittingly appeared in their undercover segment.

Lorraine weekdays from 9am on ITV and catch up on the ITV Hub.
