A nude portrait of Janet causes an online bidding war and plenty of Loose Women laughter

Janet Street Porter was in for quite the shock when she discovered that an artist's impression of her had become the subject of an online bidding war live on air.

Christine informed her of the nude portrait's existence at the top of Wednesday's show, not realising just how much of a stir the piece, by artist Caiman Griffiths, would cause online.

Within minutes bids for the portrait - which Janet didn't pose for - were flying in and the Loose Women team had come up with a very interesting idea about what they could do next.

Watch the video above to see the portrait in all its glory and find out why Coleen thinks the artist is going to need a bigger canvas - and a lot more paint - if he's going to take up a new Loose Women challenge!

Watch Loose Women weekdays from 12.30pm on ITV, STV and the ITV Hub.
