Loose Women star Sally Lindsay cutting back on work to spend time with her kids

Sally Lindsay has of course been a Loose Women panellist for less than a year, however, she’s revealed to the Daily Mirror that she’s going to cut back on the number of days she appears on the show in order to spend more time with her twin boys.

And of course, Sally – who formerly starred in Coronation Street as Shelley Unwin – also stars in Sky1 sitcom Mount Pleasant, so she’s had a busy few months!

Of her decision to take some time out, Sally said, “I want some time off with the boys, so it will be maybe once a week or once every two weeks on Loose Women.”

She added, “It was an open contract [and] the bosses have been great and said I can come in when I want…”

Then, while speaking about the new series of Mount Pleasant, which returns for a second run on Wednesday August 22 at 9pm on Sky Living HD, Sally said of her character Lisa, “Lisa is Everywoman in a way to some degree…

“She exemplifies those stupid problems women have that men don’t give a monkey’s about.

“All men want is to see their bird naked and that is it, they are fine. [Her husband] Dan [who’s played by Daniel Ryan] encapsulates that.

“He doesn’t care as long as Lisa gets her kit off. Whereas us women are more worried about things like whether we’ve put on a little bit of weight…

“It would really take the pressure off if more ladies realised that is how men think. We put all this pressure on ourselves – and real men are not bothered.

“I am similar to Lisa in that I am very close to my family and very much in love with my husband [Steve].

“We have silly arguments about nothing like everybody does. But I do my own washing, I do my own cleaning so I don’t think I’m as lazy as Lisa or as spoilt.”
