Loose Women star Janet Street-Porter cringed as she watched a throwback clip of herself from the 1970s on today’s show (Wednesday November 11).
The presenter, 73, held her head in her hands as a clip was shown that looked at her ‘Life Before Loose’ journey.
What happened on Loose Women with Janet-Street Porter?
The panel of Ruth Langsford, Denise Welch and Jane Moore dug up some vintage footage of Janet from her early presenting days.
And it’s safe to say that she was lost for words. Almost.
After explaining that she had started off in newspapers and then radio, a clip was shown of her from the late 1970s when she first moved into TV.
“I look like a toilet brush,” she screamed.
Meanwhile, other footage showed Janet interviewing stars like David and Arnold Schwarzenegger on a London weekend show.
She revealed that she didn’t get nervous except for when she interviewed pop legend Bowie.
“He had such an air about him,” he said.
Janet also said she “rated” Sir Michael Caine.

Refreshingly humble. What a woman. I would love to know more about her incredible life. Not even sure Janet Street-Porter understands how her life inspires young women. Thankyou for a little snip of your life x
