Joining Andrea McLean, Carol McGiffin, Jane Moore and Kelly Bryan in honour of Pride Month, the couple discussed a video they released at the beginning of the month.
In the clip, the sweethearts showcased a number of vile insults they had received from online trolls, targeting their sexuality and race.
Urging social media users to be kind, pro boxer Nicola wrote: “It’s so sad to think how little it’s changed over the years and that people still discriminate against us for just being women, the colour of our skin or who we love.
“We will never stop fighting for what we believe in or stop being who we are and neither should you. #loveispower”
Playing the clip on Loose Women today, host Andrea branded the comments in the clip as “painful,” as the panellists reflected on the couple’s experience of online discrimination.
Andrea said: “It is powerful, and yet quite a painful video to watch as well. Those terrible comments you received.”
Nicola explained: “We wanted to basically highlight the things that are said to us. I always get a lot of comments from people saying how do you deal with trolls and what people say, so I wanted to do that video to help other people.”
