“I missed [Loose Women] so much,” she said. “I love all the different personalities but everyone has individually sent me messages and sent me food.

“Judi [Love] and Charlene [White] came round with food.

“It was just too much. It was really nice and I appreciated that support, everyone from ITV has been really amazing.”
