Gloria Hunniford blasted over her use of language on the show today

ITV viewers lashed out on Twitter

Gloria Hunniford faced backlash for her use of language on Loose Women today (August 2).

The women were asked whether they were hopeless romantics or not during a segment on the show.

As a result, Gloria began telling a story about herself when she was younger.

“When I was 19, the first time I went to Majorca and I thought I had fallen in love with somebody.

“Every time he said: ‘Would you like to see more of the island?’ his mum then came, and afterwards, I discovered that he was very, very gay.”

Ruth Langsford then interjected: “He wanted you as a friend!”

She continued: “But what we did quite early on was get quite a real hair wig made for her. Honestly, I was quite shocked at how real it is because you could be an inch away from the root and you just don’t know [it’s a wig].”

Gloria added: “For her, she loved having it and she just said: ‘Oh I had my hair cut off’, because she had lovely long hair.”
