Christine Lampard has revealed that she watched Loose Women ‘every day during maternity leave’, as she returned to the show.
On Tuesday’s episode on ITV Daytime, the presenter of 42 years was joined by panellists Coleen Nalan, Sunetra Tarker and Janet Street Porter.
Her first child, Freddie, was born in March. She had previously been absent from the show for months.
Speaking at the start of the programme, an excited Christine said: “It’s good to be back.”
She was later asked by Janet if she ‘watched Loose Women’ during her maternity leave.
Christine replied: “I watched Loose Women, honestly, every day that I was off.”
Jokingly asked if the show had ‘helped with her contractions’, she added: “It was more just for that company feeling.
“You know, when you’ve just had a baby and I’m sure there’s a lot of people at home feeling this.
“You can feel a bit isolated… and it was just lovely to feel like your friends were on the telly.”
Christine’s fellow Loose ladies were delighted to welcome her back into the fold.
Coleen said: “I have to say, you look fantastic.”
As Christine insisted that she thought she looked ‘really tired’, Sunetra added: “You look wonderful.”
Christine announced the birth of her second child Freddie with her partner and football star Frank Lampard in March.
They also have a three year-old daughter, Patricia.
