When Loose Women got under way on Thursday, Love’s fellow panellists sent touching messages.

Presenter Kaye Adams shared that Love had been due to be on the panel of the ITV programme on Thursday but was off following her sad loss.

“We all want to send our very, very best wishes to our friend Judi Love,” she said.

“Judi was supposed to be with us today but has taken today off because of the sad news that her dad Albert has passed away.”

Nadia Sawalha said: “I spoke to Judi yesterday. I think obviously, because her father was out in Jamaica, like for so many people over the last year, people not being able to come together.

“So we send you a big, big hug Judi."

"We love you," she added.
