Star of the smash hit ITV show, Judge Rinder joined the Loose Women today. His no-nonsense approach and witty remarks have helped pull in up to 1.5 million daily viewers since he first hit our screens back in 2014.
Today, he talks about his new book Rinder’s Rules: Make the Law Work for You! in which the barrister covers common legal woes and concerns using real-life stories.
She fell off the chair and we've been together ever since
Irish funny man, Patrick Kielty has had a prolific career entertaining audiences for over twenty years as an on-stage comedian and on-air presenter for hit shows such as Love Island and Fame Academy.
He’s back in the UK touring with his new comedy show Help.
Patrick married Fame Academy co-star Cat Deeley in 2012 and the couple are expecting their first child together.
Patrick spoke about how he wooed his now wife Cat, saying they always used to keep in contact but things changed one birthday. It was Cat's birthday and he text her in LA from 'a little Irish pub'. She replied and said it was a shame he wasn't in LA as she was having a birthday lunch.
Patrick said, "So I got up at five jumped on a six o'clock flight from Ireland and got into Heathrow at seven, then jumped on a twenty to ten flight got in at quarter past one, and walked into the Beverley Hills Hotel and I said 'Hi' and she fell off the chair and we've been together ever since."
Hollywood legend, Goldie Hawn, joined us today as a fully-fledged Loose Woman!
Goldie’s been in the UK since last Wednesday and since touching down, has caught up with friends, enjoyed our ‘glorious’ weather and also filmed a cookery show with Jamie Oliver. Goldie says she always loves her time in the UK (in particular London) and can't wait to become an official Loose Woman!
On her 31 year strong relationship with Kurt Russell, Goldie spoke of why they never married saying, "We've been married before. It didn't work. Why do it again?"
Goldie spoke of her children and that she passed on her independence to daughter, Kate Hudson. She said, "Kate is also in a similar situation to what I was. Self-sustaining in many ways, obviously financially. And our children have grown up also understanding that's a fair deal. Women working for themselves isn't such a bad thing."

Comedienne and actress Beth Vyse shared her own experience of the Breast Cancer which was also the focus of a comedy show she did, As Funny As Cancer, at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the Summer. She said, "It's how I dealt with it" and has since been given 'the all clear.'
Stupidly, and please don't ever do this, I didn't tell anybody. I went in frightened... My fear was I didn't want to know and I didn't want to tell anybody.
During our Breast Cancer Awareness Month special, Sherrie made an emotional appeal for women to be aware of their body and to get checked.
Sherrie got teary as she admitted that she found a lump before she went into the Big Brother house this September. She said, "It was me who found it, I didn't tell anybody. I went to hospital but I was going into the Big Brother house and I didn't want to say anything because I'm working and I have to earn and I'm the only breadwinner in the family."
Sherrie said all she felt was terror and buried her head in the sand. She said, "It was the most stupid thing I've ever done in my life."
Luckily for Sherrie, it turned out to be a cyst but she urged viewers to not do what she did and to share the news that you've found a lump. "If anybody is listening, please don't do what I did."
There is a lot of awareness about breast cancer now. We really started to realise that even though it's shockingly traumatic for the person going through treatment, the people around them are also having a horrific time
Actress and model, Elizabeth Hurley is an ambassador for the Estee Lauder Companies' UK Breast Cancer Awareness campaign and they have released a book that contains practical advice and tips based on real-life experiences from people who have been touched by breast cancer; whether they’ve been given the all clear, are currently going through treatment or are surviving losing a loved one to the disease.
Elizabeth said that times have changed so much in the 20 years since she has started raising awareness for Breast Cancer. She said, "We've been saying to all ladies for the last 20 years that they should check their breasts once a month. At the same time of the month because there are changes in the breast every month."
