What did Carol McGiffin say on Loose Women?

Carol said: “I have to say that I did feel a little bit uncomfortable looking at them because I felt like I was intruding in a way.

“I’m not judging her and saying that she’s wrong to do it but I don’t know, I just think that it’s such a private thing.

I just think that it’s such a private thing.

“I kind of question if there are some things that you shouldn’t have to share on social media.”

Now, TV watchdog Ofcom revealed it received 78 complaints over Carol’s comments.

Loose Women to face Ofcom investigation?

An Ofcom spokesperson told Metro: “We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, before deciding whether or not to investigate.”

Ent Daily has contacted Loose Women for comment.

Meanwhile, during the discussion on Loose Women, Carol added: “I know that she’s had a lot of followers and fans who care deeply for what’s going on with her whole pregnancy up until yesterday.

“But I just felt like this was not something I should be witnessing.”

In addition, Jane Moore said: “Do you think it’s the timing?

“Because it’s very soon after it happened and I suppose that for me is the most ‘oh’ thing of it.

“I look and I think, she’s going through the most painful of experiences.

“I’m thinking, is she in the right head space of that moment to make that decision to put it out there?”

Viewers weren’t happy with the discussion.

One person said on Twitter: “If it doesn’t make you feel comfortable Carol, just don’t look at them.”

Another tweeted: “Why does Carol moan AT EVERYTHING? My god they just lost a baby..

“And Jane if it’s too early to post it why is Loose Women talking about it!”
