Lk: A Lass Insane - Picture Exclusive

We're painting our faces and dressing in school uniform...

Apparently the queen of morning TV in the UK, (not to mention national treasure and proud growler owner), Lorraine Kelly, gave an interview to The People newspaper at the weekend.

I missed it, but here's the relevant excerpt from the online version...

“There are so many ­people I’d still love to ­interview. David Bowie is my all-time hero. I ­remember going to school with a circle on my head like him, and embroidering ‘Bowie’ on my school duffel coat. But I don’t think I could ­interview him because I’d just be staring at him. It would be really difficult.”

Lorraine has never made a secret of her love for all things Bowie, but I hadn't realised that her love gave her the courage to go to school as she describes and as evidenced in the picture above.

The same person that pointed me in the direction of The People article also kindly sent in the above 35-year-old snap. While they wish to remain anonymous they did also volunteer the following...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I was at school with Lorraine at Claremont High in East Kilbride and I was a fellow Bowie Freak. I can't remember why she came to school with the Bowie make-up on, but she was crazy about him and even embroidered the Diamond Dogs Bowie logo on the back of her coat.

I took the picture of her wearing the make-up and must still have the negative somewhere. I don't recall who defaced the picture, but it certainly wasn't me. I liked Lorraine a lot and though we eventually went our seperate ways, I always thought she would make something decent of her life."

Pretty cool eh? I wonder if 'Loz' still has the coat?
