Loose Women has teamed up with a mother who lost two children to carbon monoxide poisoning to raise awareness of the danger.
Sharon Wood's two children, aged seven and six, were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning while on holiday in Corfu, Greece.
The campaign, Say No To CO, launches on Tuesday and Ms Wood will talk about how a carbon monoxide alarm could have saved her children's lives.
Ms Wood spoke about the campaign and how it will raise awareness of what she called the "silent killer".
She said: "There is nothing more important to a mother than keeping her family safe, particularly when we are away from home.
"We pack the calpol and the plasters, and now it's time we all take a CO monitor too. If my family had taken one on holiday, Christi and Bobby would most definitely still be with us."
Loose Women will also be giving away 3,000 portable carbon monoxide alarms to viewers.
The show will also run a segment on Wednesday, with experts to show the dangers of the gas as well as tips for viewers on how to keep safe.
