Carol has already had her say, poking fun at the team for overlooking her, a woman who had actually appeared on the Loose Women panel the most.

Now it's Denise's turn to vent.

Tweeting from her hols, the actress and former CBB winner raged in response to those demanding to know why she was absent from the party: "Thank you all for asking. I'm in Greece having a wonderful time. But no, I wasn't asked to be part of Loose Women's celebrations."

She added: "It was time for me to leave four years ago but sad to have been airbrushed when you share your life for ten years."

I wasn't asked to be part of Loose Women's celebrations

Denise left the show when a new producer decided to take it in a different direction.

Back in 2013 she announced to the Mirror: "I've quit. I was hurt that the changes were made and kept secret and the person responsible for the decisions hadn't come and talked to me about it.

"Every show needs a shake up but the way she's going I've felt my wings have been clipped

"I feel the way the show going is losing the fun of it."

Carol McGiffin took to Twitter to respond to those who wondered why she had only appeared on the celebration show as just a picture.

"You're not the only one to have noticed," she said. "It's not like they didn't have a lot material to choose from."

"Maybe it's because we (the only gang) left and the show stopped winning awards. Who knows?"
