TV personality Kim Woodburn has said she is ‘incredibly upset and disappointed’ following an incident that saw her storm off the set of Loose Women.
The former How Clean Is Your House? star – who was born in Portsmouth – appeared on the ITV programme to face sparring partner Coleen Nolan, with whom she has had a public fall-out after they appeared in Celebrity Big Brother in January 2017.
Woodburn has accused Nolan, and some of the other housemates, of bullying her while in the house, while Nolan maintains that Woodburn was constantly argumentative.
During her appearance on Loose Women, Woodburn raised her voice and shouted at Nolan and the other panellists before storming off.
A spokeswoman for Woodburn told the Press Association in a statement: ‘Kim was invited onto Loose Women as she was told Coleen wanted to hold peace talks with her.
‘When she arrived this morning, Kim was briefed and told Coleen would speak first and give her reasons for their row.
‘She was told Coleen wanted to bury the hatchet.
‘However when Kim walked on set, Coleen refused to speak first and made Kim do all the talking.
‘This left Kim on the spot and out of her depth.
‘This incident has left Kim incredibly upset and she feels disappointed with what happened.’
ITV said in a statement: ‘Kim agreed to come onto the panel today at the invitation of the producers on the understanding it was for a reconciliation with Coleen.
‘Kim becoming upset was never the intention and the panel did endeavour to comfort her.
‘She was offered counselling after the show, which she declined.’
