Lorraine Kelly fights back tears as she overcomes fear after near death experience

Lorraine Kelly fought back tears as she conquered her horse-riding fear on today's edition of her self-titled chat show.

The Scottish presenter required life saving care at St George's Hospital in London in 2012 following a horrific horse riding accident.

Lorraine confessed she hadn't been able to go near a horse since and she visited 14-times Paralympic Gold medalist Sir Lee Pearson to overcome her fear.

The para-equestrianism champion described Lorraine's experience as "traumatic" and said he understands her fear.

Lorraine was anxious as she prepared to ride a horse named Zion at Sir Lee's home near Stoke on Trent.

Lorraine donned Sir Lee's Championship hat from the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020 and proceeded to mount the horse.
