Janet Street-Porter makes sad confession about multiple marriages

The panellist has been hitched four times

Janet Street-Porter opened up about how she woke up the morning after her wedding day and immediately regretted it.

The 70-year-old has been married four times, but said that she only went through with half of her weddings out of feeling pressured.

Janet also told the Loose Women ladies that she would’ve been embarrassed if she didn’t go through with them.

Stacey Solomon argued with the red-headed journalist over the importance of tying the knot, with Stacey then branding her the “Grim Reaper of marriage”.

Revealing that she had once married a man she didn’t love, Janet said: “Well maybe if you’re involved in something, in an event of that magnitude, you think ‘I’d better go through with it’.

“I mean, 50% of mine [weddings] have been like that. One I knew the next morning. I adored him and I still do to this day, but the next day I got up and I thought: ‘Why did we do that?’

“That was a big mistake, but we had a great party!”

The rest of the panellists were enjoying making fun of their pal, with host Christine Lampard saying Janet’s love life was like a “holding pattern at Heathrow” as there were a lot of “arrivals and departures”.

However, the former editor of The Independent on Sunday still looks at marriage in a positive light.

She said: “It might sound odd but actually at 70 I now believe in marriage.

“There is a big point to it because if you have any property or children, marriage is a legal document.”

Hilariously, she then added that she would make an amazing pre-marriage counsellor.
