It’s been reported today that former Celebrity Big Brother star Denise Welch has refused to ever sit alongside Janet Street Porter on the panel of Loose Women.
It seems that Denise and Janet have some “history” which includes “a major personality clash” and according to the Mirror, that’s given the show’s production team a few headaches as they try to ensure the pair never meet on set.
A show insider told the paper, “To say relations between Denise and Janet are frosty would be an understatement.

It’s been reported by the Daily Mirror today that Loose Women stars Janet Street Porter and Jenny Éclair – who are two of the latest additions to the hit show’s panel – defaced framed photographs of Katherine Jenkins and Myleene Klass.

A show insider told the paper, “For some reason Janet didn’t seem to take to Katherine when she was on the show…

“Luckily it wasn’t picked up by Katherine but Janet was openly joshing about it afterwards.” Read more & comment »
