Denise Welch was replaced in Monday’s episode of ITVthe interview show of Loose Women after Gloria Hunniford suffered a fall. Gloria was set to appear alongside longtime friend Cliff Richard to discuss the Jubliee festivities over the weekend, however, she had to talk to him on the phone due to an accident she had on Saturday.
As well as being absent from the show, Gloria was also scheduled to be involved in the Platinum Show on Sunday, June 5, to mark the end of the four-day celebrations.
Denise appeared alongside Ruth Langsford, Coleen Nolan and Sophie Morgan to discuss the Jubilee celebrations instead.
Touching on Gloria’s absence, Ruth explained: “Someone I was very sad not to see there at the show yesterday was our own Gloria Hunniford.
“She was supposed to be on the National Treasury bus with her great friend Sir Cliff Richard, and she was so excited about it, and she was supposed to be on the panel today.
“So a big thank you to Denise for intervening, but unfortunately Gloria had a fall. She was interviewed at the BBC on Saturday, then had a fall on Saturday night and couldn’t go to the show. Absolutely devastating.”
Ruth assured viewers that she was perfectly fine, with Denise adding that she has plaster on her leg and arm, along with a bad cut to her face.
Fighting her way through her injuries, Gloria later phoned into the show to talk to Sir Cliff, who was a guest on the panel.
She revealed that she broke a bone in her face and joked, “I look like I did ten rounds with Mike Tyson and lost really badly.”
After seeing a picture of Gloria’s wounds, Sir Cliff commented: “I was joking about it. thing, just sit back and relax. “
Before the call ended, everyone gave her their best wishes and a speedy recovery, with Ruth adding, “Gloria, we wish you all the best, take care of yourself, don’t you. Don’t rush back until you’re better.”
Hearing about her accident, viewers quickly went to Twitter to send their own best wishes, with @ mary_pippin1 commenting: “Oh poor Gloria, it sounds awful – rest and get well soon, dear Mrs. #loosewomen.”
