“We are in touch, so that’s lovely.”
Proving that she and Paul are also still good friends too, Mel added: “And Paul texted me out of the blue three days ago, which was really nice, to say good luck for the play.”

“If we get to do more we just have to try and make it our own, give it our own voice.”
Lorraine airs weekdays on ITV.
