Loose Women: Janet Street Porter takes swipe at Penny Lancaster in clash with Denise Welch

Janet and Penny previously clashed on the show

Loose Women star Janet Street Porter made a dig at Penny Lancaster as she debated with Denise Welch on today’s show.

Last week, Janet, 74, clashed with Penny, 50, in a row over whether working mothers should highlight being a parent on their CVs.

In the clash, the pair made digs at each other before Janet told her co-star: “In a debate Penny two people will speak and generally one after the other and they get equal time.

“Not one person puts their point of view and I have to just shut up.”

What did Denise say?

She said: “July 19 personally doesn’t change things for me… It’s the fact that again we’re back to football and tennis, what about social distancing?

“They’ve had their freedom for weeks now, but the theatres, for example, haven’t.”
