Andrea McLean’s children sent her a sweet birthday message on today’s Loose Women.
The panellist, who celebrated her 50th birthday on Saturday (October 5), was thrown a belated party on Monday’s show by her co-stars Coleen Nolan, Saira Khan and Jane Moore.
Coleen told Andrea they had a special surprise for her – messages from her loved ones.
Coleen said: “At the weekend, Andrea turned 50. All I can say is, welcome to the club love.”
Speaking about how she celebrated her special day, Andrea said: “It was really nice. Me and [my husband] Nick woke up and he ran downstairs and came upstairs with two little glasses of champagne.
“Then we just spent it with the kids. We had a really quiet day. Got a massage and then we went out to dinner with my mum and dad and the kids.”
Coleen said: “Just spent it with the people closest to you. Well, we have actually got a few other people who want to wish you a happy birthday. Let’s take a look.”
A montage of videos from her loved ones, including her mum, in-laws and sister, then played.
Her son Finlay and daughter Amy said: “Happy birthday mum!”
Finlay added: “Hope you have a great day,” while Amy said: “You made it, you’re finally 50!”
Her husband Nick said in another video: “My wing man, my best friend, my darling wife, happy 50th birthday.
“I love you to the moon and back and I hope you get everything you wish for. Happy, happy, happy, happy birthday. Love you.”
Andrea gushed: “Isn’t that nice?! Aw, that is so sweet.”
Coleen then revealed they had another surprise for Andrea – a birthday cake.
Coleen told Andrea: “Just so you know, so you aren’t worried, it’s vegan.”
Andrea explained: “I’ve got a horrible dairy allergy and everytime [bosses bring me a cake] I’m like, ‘I can’t eat it!'”
Coleen joked: “Well, very selfishly, you can eat all of that.”
Speaking about being 50, Andrea said: “I’m really excited about being 50. It means if I don’t want to do something I can say, ‘oh no I’m 50, I don’t want to do that.’
“Then if I do do something, people will think I’m great. It’s win-win. I think it’s great.”
