Yesterday’s edition of Loose Women was quite a show, between the drama of 64 year old rock star Meat Loaf being taken ill shortly before he was due to appear on the show, and presenter Lisa Maxwell’s revelation that she’d made a Leap Year proposal to her partner Paul.
Starting with what happened to Meat Loaf, while on air from the show’s Green Room, he seemed jovial and in high spirits, however, soon afterwards, just minutes before he was due to be interviewed by the Loose Women panelists, he was taken ill with what’s suspected to have been an asthma attack.
Presenter Andrea McLean told viewers, “A little bit of sad news – I’m afraid Meat Loaf has taken unwell so he’s unable to join us for the end of the show.
“Meat Loaf, I hope you feel better soon…”
Meat Loaf was later seen being helped out of the studios and into a waiting car. So far, there’s been no official word on what happened. Here’s a clip of his brief Green Room appearance…
However, there was much happier news from presenter Lisa Maxwell in yesterday’s show when she revealed that as soon as it turned midnight and became February 29th she proposed to her long-term partner, Paul Jessup.
Lisa explained, “For the last couple of weeks I’ve been joking with Paul: ‘You know it’s the 29 February and I could you ask you to marry me, don’t you?’
“And he was like, ‘Yeah, very funny. Haha,’ and just ignored it.
“It’s something we’ve talked about, but we haven’t really had a proposal. And I thought I’d say to him, once and for all, ‘Will you marry me?’
“And he said, ‘Of course I will Nobby!'”
And to her new fiancé, Lisa added, “If you’re watching sweetheart – you mean the world to me and I’m so happy.”
Awww bless! Congrats to you Lisa and Paul!
Best be buying a hat then…
