Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha has divided viewers after mocking Chloe Burrows’ accent.
What did Nadia Sawalha say?
Nadia, 56, starred on the Loose Women panel alongside Charlene White, Judi Love and Jane Moore.
Nadia began to mumble and slur her words, before finishing on: “We’re just going to be friends and not romantic.”
Judi then went on to say: “Reallyyyy,” in a drawn out tone.
Nadia added: “Oh no, she’s the most wonderful character. I absolutely adore her.
“I love that you can never understand anything she says! But in the few words that you could pick up, she did that in the kindest way.”
How did Loose Women viewers react?
However, the impression divided viewers at home.
Following the moment, some called out Nadia for mocking the 25-year-old Islander.
Taking to Twitter, one said: “No Nadia she isn’t a character, she is a real person. She shouldn’t be having the [bleep] taken out of her because the way she speaks. Not nice.”
She’s such a hypocrite
Another raged: “It absolutely riles me that Nadia takes the [bleep] out of the women on Love Island. I don’t watch it, but she’s such a hypocrite because she harps on about being kind & how fragile mental health is.”
A third added: “You can talk Nadia you never finish your words don’t know what you are saying half the time.”
Meanwhile, another saw the funny side to Nadia’s impersonation.

They shared: “Nadia got Chloe’s voice spot on. That’s exactly what she sounds like #LooseWomen.”
The criticism comes days after Nadia angered viewers during a Loose Women debate about the pingdemic.
Speaking about the recent headlines, she said: “A lot of people I know have deleted the [NHS Test and Trace] app because they don’t want to be pinged when they’re not ill and not going into work and lose money.”
The TV star also added that she knows some parents who have taken their kids out of school early to avoid being pinged.
However, some claimed her comments were “negligent”.
At the time, one tweeted: “Very sensible Nadia Sawalha on #LooseWomen stating you should delete the NHS app to stop getting pinged!!”
