Linda Robson will swear as much as she wants to on the ‘Loose Women’ tour.
The 65-year-old star has featured as a panellist on the ITV1 chat show for more than a decade and now that the series is heading out on the road, she has explained that she can be “ruder” than is allowed during the lunchtime shot of the programme as the show gears up to hit UK theatres for a string of evening dates.
She is quoted by The Daily Star’s HOTTV Column as saying: “We can be ruder because we won’t be on daytime TV. And I can swear. I can say as many F words as I want. It’ll be great. There will be lots of clips from over the years and the audience will get to ask questions. We are really looking forward to it.”
The former ‘Birds of a Feather’ actress – who will be joined on the road by co-stars such as former ‘Coronation Street’ actress Denise Welch, media legend Janet Street-Porter, West End star Brenda Edwards, activist Katie Piper and presenter Gloria Hunniford – has often had to apologise for her profanity whilst on set of the show, infamously uttering the word “f***” during a live competition segment in 2022.
The tour will kick off at Birmingham Symphony Hall on September 1st, and will visit 16 spectacular venues throughout the month and include a night at the world-famous London Palladium.
ITV said: “Come and let loose with the Loose Women for an evening filled with laughter, hot topics, fun and surprises – as they share their stories and secrets live and in person.”
Other panellists who will be part of ‘Loose Women’ live include Sun columnist Jane Moore, former ‘EastEnders’ actress Nadia Sawalha – both of whom featured as original panellists on the show’s very first episode in 1999 – as well as ‘Ackley Bridge’ star Sunetra Sarker, comedienne Judi Love and former Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge.
Loose Women editor Sally Shelford said: “We’re delighted the show is hitting the road for the first time with ‘Loose Women Live’!
“Having a live audience is such an important part of’ Loose Women’ and we can’t wait to be able to bring the show directly to our viewers in this way.”
