Following the announcement of Christine Lampard's baby, the Loose Women panel were some of the first to find out the happy news - apart from one! During the show on Friday, Carol McGiffin appeared a little miffed that she was one of the last to find out. Host Andrea McLean told the audience: "We have got some really happy Loose Women news - Christine has had her baby! We're all mates and we are in a WhatsApp group. So the first thing we got this morning was this lovely message."

Rather unimpressed to be excluded from the group, Carol remarked: "I'm not in it!" To which co-host Kaye Adams retorted: "You don't like babies! Christine's not going to send them to you." However, Carol went on to insist: "I do! She doesn’t look like she's just had a baby, she looks beautiful." In July, Carol returned to her Loose Women seat after five years. She featured on the popular ITV daytime show for more than a decade - between 2003 and 2013 - before taking a step back.
When asked why she wanted to return to Loose Women, Carol recently explained: "It's a lot of things that it's the right thing to do now. Like I said, I was feeling ill. I wasn't actually feeling like there was a lot of point in doing a lot of stuff. When you have cancer, and a lot of people have, and you recover, you have to wait five years before they give you the all clear but even then, there's no guarantees." The TV personality continued: "[The cancer] hasn't come back so I've had to go back to work, which is a really good thing actually. I'm really pleased to be here. I'm really nervous which is odd because I did over a 1000 shows."
