Marcus Rashford praises Brenda for sharing her powerful story about single mum money struggles

Brenda Edwards earned the praise of footballer Marcus Rashford as she spoke powerfully about the time when she struggled to feed her children on Loose Women.

Speaking to Andrea, Carol and Linda, Brenda recalled "just sitting in the dark" because she had no money to pay the bills as she tried to make ends meet and put food on the table for her children.

Her words inspired a beautiful response from footballer Marcus, who has been campaigning to end child poverty and inspired a government U-turn on school meals earlier this year.

Carol also shared her memories of watching her mum struggle, while Linda opened up about a difficult time when she too struggled to provide for her family.
