Men Behaving Badly star Leslie Ash told shocked the Loose Women panel when she said her mother used to put brandy in her milk to help her sleep as a baby.
Appearing on Loose Women on Wednesday, 24 May to discuss the upcoming 30th anniversary of Race for Life, the panellists had earlier been discussing naughty children on an airplane.
When the subject was brought up again, Ash said: "My mum used to put brandy in my milk when we were travelling but I don't think you can do that now."
Host Christine Lampard then butted in and remarked "Definitely not!"

Ash went on to add: "There was this antihistamine thing you used to be able to give babies but I'm not sure you can do that anymore," before Lampard swiftly moved the conversation on as the rest of the panel watched awkwardly.
One viewer saw the funny side tweeting: "Choking with laughter at Leslie Ash on show! From brandy in milk to phenergan for babies! The look of panic on @clbleakley face was priceless."
Ash also received criticism for saying she refrains from using a wheelchair despite difficulty walking as "if you don't use it, you lose it" in regards to her muscles.
One viewer commented: "Right, that's it. I'm done with TV. Watching Leslie Ash on ITV state that she doesn't use a wheelchair following an injury is because "if you don't use it you lose it" is the final straw.
"Yet another myth that should have died years ago but plays into the superhero trope. Argh!"
Ash suffered two cracked ribs in 2004 and a few days later lost all feeling in her legs thanks to a staph infection that nearly left her completely unable to walk.
After suing the NHS, she was paid a record settlement of £5million after the hospital breached its duty of care.
