Loose Women joins in Daytime's Bun Run for Macmillan Cancer Support

Daytime's Bun Run supporting Macmillan Cancer Support

Calling all coffee and cake lovers. Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning is back for it's 26th year and you're all invited!

We've been getting involved - obviously, there's cake! - as part of Daytime's Bun Run, our coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support .

Peter Andre has been pushing his cake trolley through all the ITV daytimes shows selling cakes to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. And all the presenters have been donating money for coffee and delicious cakes.

And in true Loose Women style, we’ve putting our own spin on the conventional Macmillan Coffee Morning by hosting a Canine Coffee Morning. All our cakes and treats are entirely dog-friendly, ready for Ruth, Gloria and Jane’s pooches to enjoy. Plus, a few more surprise pups!

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning returns this Friday 30 September. Last year, people getting together over coffee and cake raised a record breaking £27.5million for people affected by cancer.

Should the UK return to pounds and ounces?

In the wake of Brexit some butchers and grocers have asked if they can sell produce in the old imperial measurement system. In 1995 the EU enforced a law saying traders needed to use the metric system. But after Britain voted OUT could things be about to change?

What do you think? Let us know by voting in our poll below.

Ferne McCann: New nose was for me not Hollywood

A lot of people thought I got my nose done to conform to the LA appearance. I did it for me and not to fit into a certain lifestyle.

– Ferne McCann

Former TOWIE star Ferne McCann has denied rumours she had a nose job to give her acting career a lift-off.

The Essex girl recently went to Los Angeles to try and land an agent and pursue her acting dream.

However she insists the op was something that she wanted to do to make herself feel better.

Lovely Ferne also says she is proud of her strong accent and reveals why she thinks it is her reality TV past that is getting in the way of her plans.

They told me to tone my accent down when I was in America and I was like 'Really?'

Gloria Hunniford: I feel violated

It was easier for four strangers to go in and take my money. When I phone up my bank I have to answer about nine obscure questions.

– Gloria Hunniford

Gloria Hunniford today spoke exclusively about the bank scam which saw a fraudster steal £120,000 from her bank account.

A lady walked into Santander posing as the TV presenter- who ironically hosts a show called Rip Off Britain - and managed to add her grandson's name to the account.

She said: "I have lost all faith in banks. I feel violated. I have no trust for the banks."

Gloria, 76, continued: "It was easier for four strangers to go in and take my money than it is for me to get access to it."

Asked if the situation had been cleared up now, Gloria emotionally replied: "Not in my mind."

'It gave us comfort, he came to say hello'

It was a bit weird but it gave us comfort. I thought, this is Archie coming to say hello and to show that he's OK.

– Kym Marsh

Kym Marsh claims the ghost of her son Archie visited her on the anniversary of his death earlier this year.

Archie, Kym's son from a relationship with ex husband Jamie Lomas, was born 18 weeks early seven years ago and died shortly afterwards.

Each year the family light candles and decorate with balloons during a dinner to remember Archie. And this year Kym, son David and daughters Emilie and Polly, had a huge shock.

Watch the video above to hear Kym's remarkable story.

The chandelier was shaking, there was a stomping on the floor and we could hear a child crying.
