Backstage with #JoshCam

Just minutes before the show we thought we'd see how many crew would could squeeze in behind the set! Sherrie is focuses on chocolate, Andrea is being back combed to within an inch of her life whilst engulfed in a could of hairspray and poor Josh gets accosted by today's warm-up Roycey.

Just another day in the Loose Women office...

Video of girl punching boy goes viral on Facebook

A 14 year old girl from Croydon who punched a boy in the face in a video watched more than 2.7million times on Facebook cried yesterday as as she was detained for eight months by a local Youth Court.

The court heard how she'd been on a youth rehabilitation order for previous offences including grievous bodily harm and intimidating a witness when she was filmed shouting abuse and hitting a ‘vulnerable’ 14-year-old boy.

Is the sentence fair? Are the parent's completely to blame for her appalling behaviour? And are you worried about the increasing violence in the younger generation?

An 80th birthday surprise...

Edith Coldhart in an avid Loose Women viewer (thanks Edith!) so when her daughter Susan got in touch last week to say that they'd be heading down to visit us again for Edith's 80th birthday, we just had to do something special.

To celebrate in style we sent Edith and Susan off for a champagne lunch at the Mondrian Hotel on London's south bank and even surprised her with videos from her kids who are spread out across the globe - there wasn't a dry eye in the house!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Edith, love from all the Loose Women. x
