The stars of Loose Women have sent Denise Welch their condolences after her dad Vin passed away last night.
They paid tribute to their co-star’s father as a “very special man”.
What was said about Denise Welch and her dad?
Christine noted Vin had sadly died at the start of the show, before the first item about the James Bond premiere.
She said: “Before we get started properly we have to send all of our love to Denise who lost her beloved dad Vin last night.”

Christine continued: “She says: ‘He left us surrounded by his family who could not have loved anyone more.
“‘I’ve never seen anyone fight to stay longer at a party than dad and last night was no different.
“‘He loved life and lived it to the full like no other.'”
