Birds of a Feather's Linda Robson has once again dismissed the rumours of a feud between herself and co-star Pauline Quirke.

The sitcom, which was axed by ITV earlier this year, featured Robson and Quirke as sisters Tracey and Sharon who live together following the prison sentences of their husbands – Lesley Joseph made up the central trio as libertine Dorien.

But when Quirke didn't return for 2020's Christmas Special, rumours of an in-cast rift began.

Robson told Good Morning Britain anchors Kate Garraway and Adil Ray this week: "We haven't had a falling out, Pauline don't wanna act anymore, she wants to concentrate on her academy.

"Obviously people miss Pauline, but we have to respect that it was her choice not to do it anymore. We did the Christmas Special, they asked us if we'd like to do it and we said yes."

Meanwhile, the actress also went on to admit she wouldn't do the show on her own if the chance arose.

"I'm not sure if I'd be able to do it on my own. Lesley looks amazing. She's 73 now and she looks the same as she did all those years ago," Robson explained.
