Loose Women pretended yesterday's show was pre-recorded – for a very unusual reason | The Sun

LOOSE Women pretended yesterday's live programme was pre-recorded in a show first.

Earlier in the week, panellist Denise Welch shared an Instagram video on her 65th birthday telling fans she was taking a two-week break from the show.

But just two days later she was back on screens in what was said to be a pre-recorded programme to reveal that she was taking part in Celebrity Hunted in aid of Stand Up 2 Cancer.

It was all a bluff though, as Denise was actually in the studio in real time.

She hoped the pre-record blag would throw the professional trackers off the scent, and her co-stars all played along.

The programme's Instagram account posted after the show: "You heard correctly, our very own Denise had to flee the studio as she is on the run for charity and being chased by a team of hunters!"

Denise, who was a regular panellist between 2005 and 2013, before rejoining the panel in 2018, announced her break from the show by saying she was going on an adventure with husband Lincoln Townley.

She told fans: "Well… on today, on my 65th birthday, I want to say thank you in advance for all the lovely messages and comments that I've received.

"I'm going off on a little adventure for a couple of weeks so I'm going to be off here and off my phone.

"I don't quite know how I'm going to cope, but I'm going to give it a try, so don't think I have disappeared.

"It's just a temporary little holiday and I'll be back soon."

Denise also reflected on the anniversary of her mum Annie's death.

She added: "For those missing their mums, I'm thinking of you. It's a full circle.

"She brought me into the world on the 22nd of May and she left the world holding mine and my sister's hand on the 22nd of May, so it's a celebration of life as well."

Denise captioned the post: "Thank you and au revoir for a couple of weeks!!!"
