Loose Women viewers in frenzy after show is cut short by 30 minutes

The show ended half an hour early

Loose Women fans were left baffled after the show came off air after only 30 minutes to be replaced by the Epsom racing.

Outraged viewers took to Twitter to express their anger that the show didn’t have it’s usual one hour slot.

The Loose ladies, Andrea McLean, Nadia Sawalha, Jane Moore and Kaye Adams, still managed to entertain viewers in the 30 minutes and even slotted in an interview with their celeb guest – Keith Lemon.

But viewers weren’t happy with the shake up with one writing on Twitter: “Why was loose women only on for half an hour?? Is this some sort of joke.”

Another user ranted: “Only half an hour show today WHY bother waste of time!”

A third wrote: “Cutting #LooseWomen short for the racing. Shocking.”

Others weren’t so outraged by the news.

One joked: “Lucky it’s Friday & only 30mins as I reckon ladies may just need period of 48hrs & to recover with all Keith’s shenanigans #GoodLuck.”

And this isn’t the only time the show has been pulled off air and left viewers venting.

Back in April the lunchtime show was forced to cancel last minute when the Prime Minister, Theresa May, made an unexpected announcement.

As fans waited for the show to come on air they were left “gutted” after it was replaced by live coverage of the news.

The show’s Twitter feed announced the news by tweeting: “Due to @Number10gov making the general election announcement today, Loose Women will NOT be on air.

“We’ll be back on air tomorrow lunchtime as usual! #GeneralElection.”

And of course viewers were NOT happy.

One raged: “Great so #thismorning taken off air now #LooseWomen..how many times can we be told there’s going to be an election.”

Another ranted: “OMG ! First @thismorning gets pulled off the air and now this as well, why can’t the latest news be on the air at the normal time of 1:30pm?”

“As a fan of the show, I am gutted #LooseWomen #GeneralElection,” a third tweeted.

The show had a bank holiday special earlier this week which saw the panellists joined by their partners.

The special, Loose Women & Loved Ones, saw Ruth Langsford, Katie Price, Ola Jordan and Stacey Solomon quiz their partners on their relationships using lie detectors.

Ruth was shocked after finding out hubby Eamonn Holmes, 57, lies about where he’s been to his other half.

Ruth asked her spouse: “I can tell when he’s lying. Where have you been and not told me?”

Eamonn then admitted: “Look the only time I lie to you about that is when you say ‘have you taken the dog for a walk’ and I say ‘yes’ – that’s the only time I lied.”

But Ruth wasn’t quite convinced and revealed she would “dwell” on his confession.

She said: “I am going to dwell on that tonight… You know what I’m like.”
