Former Loose Women panelist Sherrie Hewson has revealed Ringo Starr is her least favourite guest on the daytime show, labelling the drummer ‘so angry’.

The former Coronation Street star was speaking at a live event in Llandudno when she was asked about the best and worst guests on the ITV chat show during her fourteen year spell. She launched into a tirade about the Beatles drummer’s attitude when he took part in the programme back in 2012. Lawson said: "Ringo Starr came on and he just sat down, said 'OK then, girls, what are we doing here? Shall we just get Paul McCartney out of the way?'

"This was live, by the way.

"Anyway, he carries on, 'Let's get Paul McCartney out the way. You want to talk about Paul McCartney? I said, ‘well, no, you're here’.

"And he said 'No you don't. You want to talk about Paul McCartney.'"

The Benidorm star added: "He was so angry. It was just so weird, I thought why? Why, why, why? It was just a really weird thing.

"And then, he said to the audience: 'Can I tell you all, if anyone wants an autograph, you can't have one because I don't do things like that.'

"At the end of it, one of the producers came up with one of her little children, who was only four, and said, that she knew he didn't do autographs, but told him that her daughter was only four, and she really loves the Beatles.

"He just said 'really?'.

"And then he said: 'Did you not hear what I just said? I don't sign autographs’.

"The reason I am telling this story is because, I think, I was so angry that I got to meet the Beatles and one of them was like that.

"Isn't it sad that you have to grow into that?"

78-year-old Starr stopped signing autographs in 2008, stating he was ‘too busy’.
