What happened on Loose Women today?

During today’s edition of Loose Women, the panelists shared their stories on rushing back to work after the death of a loved one.

Denise initially spoke about how when her mum died in 2012, she was back on stage within a week or so.

“It [the show] was at Newcastle Theatre Royal, and I remember coming on and – because it was my hometown – the audience gave me a standing ovation, because they knew,” she said.

She then said she’d found that “incredibly therapeutic”.

Denise then went on to speak about how she came back to work when it felt right after her father died.

She also spoke about the funeral, and how it was a “big party” and a “celebration of life” for him.

Denise Welch hits back on Twitter

One viewer, however, seemed to take issue with this, and cruelly tweeted about it.

“Did Denise’s dad die? She never mentioned it,” they sarcastically wrote.

If they were expecting nothing to come of their tweet, they were very wrong – as Denise caught wind of it.

Quote-tweeting the troll’s tweet, Denise brutally hit back.

“Yes, he did. The show is about us and our lives!! So go [bleep] yourself,” she wrote.
