On Monday’s instalment of Loose Women, the panel welcomed The Chase’s Mark Labbett onto the show to speak about his new quiz book. During their discussion, the conversation moved on to the 57-year-old’s huge weight loss. Although viewers were less than impressed with how Gloria Hunniford moved onto the topic.

Mark was welcomed onto the show by Jane Moore, Brenda Edwards, Colleen Nolan and Gloria Hunniford to speak about his upcoming quiz book Can You Beat The Beast?

The Chase star, who looked visibly slimmer, spoke about his life in the quizzing world along with giving viewers at home some tips and tricks.

However, when Gloria brought up the topic of his weight loss, viewers were not happy.

Touching his stomach, she said: “You look much thinner, you had a bit of a belly the last time you came.”

Despite the live audience awkwardly laughing at her blunt swipe, viewers watching were furious at her comment.

Taking to Twitter to complain, BeddoesJill asked: “Did Gloria really just say that to Mark Labbett [sic] #LooseWomen.”

AndyJamesMichel wrote: “Gloria is so F***ing rude.  #LooseWomen”

While JamieBolton added: “Imagine the uproar if a guy said to a woman “you had a bit of a belly last time you were on” #loosewomen.”

Responding to a tweet, user Berniedoll said: “And touching too, shouldn’t be patting someone’s tummy like that. Can you imagine if Mark had patted one of them on their stomach in that way?”

Initially, The Chaser was a bit taken aback by her remark as he was silent for a few seconds while Brenda Edwards’ eyes widened at Gloria’s comment.

Gloria continued: “You have to admit that?”

Mark replied: “Hey, you know the rule, your good friends can be as rude as they like!”

Thanking the Loose Women star for her backhanded compliment, Mark revealed he’s down to under 21 stone now.

He added he was once around 29 stone before losing it all which earned him a round of applause from the audience.

Jane said: “Everyone is going to want to know this, how do you manage it? What are you doing?”

Mark replied: “I think diabetes may have helped because I eat so much less and I drink fluids a lot more than I ever used to.

“Looking after a five-year-old in lockdown really didn’t help as well! 

“It was lovely my wife was working as a nurse at the time so she was doing her bit and my bit was to look after him.”

Mark jokingly told the four ladies that he would often collapse in a heap after looking after the toddler.
