Loose Women slammed as “hypocrites” after Thursday’s show

Viewers weren't impressed with their seeming double standards

Loose Women fans felt the ladies were being hypocritical today after they launched into a discussion on whether sexual banter should be banned.

The panel of Andrea McLean, Nadia Sawalha, Stacey Solomon and Jane Moore were talking about the topic in light of the new revelations that Dustin Hoffman has has now been accused of harassment, and the women didn’t hold back in their thoughts.

While Jane Moore said what Dustin had allegedly done was inappropriate, Stacey Solomon said she found it difficult when women came up to her partner Joe Swash and made suggestive comments.

“I’ve seen a lot of women be very inappropriate to my partner and I think, I hate to say it’s accepted, but it seems to be that it’s ok for a woman to be a bit overly… They smack your bum or say ‘ooh you’re handsome’, which is fine, but then it can go too far.

“If a man did that to me I would feel really uncomfortable.”

While Stacey definitely had a point that it shouldn’t be acceptable whatever someone’s gender, viewers at home felt the women were presenting double standards as every time they have handsome men on, they flirt up a storm.

Heading over to Twitter, people watching the show made their feelings known.

Only last month, Coleen Nolan flirted with Martin Kemp, offering to “lick his face”.

And she is also well known for making remarks about fellow presenter Ruth Langsford’s husband Eamonn Holmes.

One of the guests on today’s show was Susanna Constantine. She revealed she had once been sexually assaulted by a chiropractor.

“He put his finger up my vagina as part of treatment with no warning,” she said.

“This is someone who is a doctor and was trusted.

“I didn’t think anything of it and then I got home and looked up on the internet if an internal manipulation was part of the treatment and, of course, it wasn’t.”
