During today’s show, Linda also filled viewers in on her recent Christmas celebrations.
The actress explained that she celebrated with her extended family, who she said were in her “bubble”.
She shared: “I had the family around because they’re in my bubble. So I cooked roast dinner for everybody.
“Saw my granddaughters, which obviously Christmas wouldn’t have been Christmas for me without seeing them. So that was really nice.”
What did viewers say?
However, some fans were quick to point out that unless Linda celebrated Christmas without her husband Mark Dunford, she was unlikely in a bubble.
Taking to Twitter, one complained: “Did Linda just say she had all the family round for Christmas?? I thought she lives in Tier 4!!!!!”
A second said: “Sounds like Linda broke the rules over Christmas.”
A third added: “How was Linda in a ‘bubble’ with her family for Christmas when they are not one household.”
A fourth commented: “How can all Linda’s family be in her bubble? It doesn’t work like that for those of us following the restrictions #doublestandards #LooseWomen.”
Meanwhile, Linda recently returned to Birds of a Feather, which saw Tracey and Dorien reunite for the first time in three years.
