Today’s Loose Women saw the panel, which also consisted of Janet Street-Porter, Linda Nolan and Linda Robson, prepare for the next phase of Coleen and Kim Woodburn’s well-documented dispute.
The pair entered into furious arguments in the Celebrity Big Brother house 18 months ago, and the pair have been at odds ever since.
Yet today’s ITV show saw Kim break down in tears as she raged at Coleen for making her life “hell” and “bullying her with seven other people” in the Borehamwood bungalow.
The pair had already been arguing over their feud in the house, but things went from bad to worse when Kim felt people in the audience were “laughing” at her.
“Look you folks can laugh all you want,” she declared, “I’m going to tell you something now and then I’m going to leave. I had a very very sad childhood, a brutal childhood, it was terrible.
“It was a brutal rotten childhood, it was terrible and I can’t describe what I went through.
“Then when I went in the Big Brother house I was very upset in that house and I pretended I wasn’t, I pretended I was fine.”
Sobbing uncontrollably, Kim carried on before Janet tried to cut in.
“Kim Kim, she wants to draw a line under it,” Janet insisted, but Kim was having none of it.
“I will never forget what the likes of her and everybody else were doing, they were laughing at me. I lose my temper but it’s better than that.”
Angrily pointing at Coleen, Kim suddenly declared: “She is trash.”
“She’s not trash,” Janet said, but it was too late and Kim walked off the studio.
The ITV programme went to break and when it returned Coleen made sure to check everyone in the studio was ok after the dramatic events.
Coleen tried to move on from the situation, saying: “I’m never making anybody a cup of tea ever again.”
“Linda are you ok?” Janet asked.
“I’m shaking,” she admitted, “that was the like The Jeremy Kyle show.”
“She is not confrontational, that’s why you didn’t fight back in the house,” Janet then said of Coleen.
“There’s no need to be,” Coleen assured, before Janet revealed she was “happier” things were calming down.
