Carol McGiffin reconnected with her old Loose Women co-star for a fun Christmas photo.
The 63-year-old appeared for a bikini photo with Denise Welch months after leaving the show and calling it “awake.”
Carol slammed ITV’s daytime programme, which has Nadia Sawalha and Ruth Langsford on the panel, after resigning away owing to a ‘unjust’ contract disagreement.
Denise, on the other hand, seemed to have no ill will towards him, as the duo can be seen laughing in the latest photo.
‘A momentary lapse in concentration whilst shooting our ‘Only Nans’ content chez @the_mcgiff !!!! Get ready to subscribe,’ Denise, 65, joked.
‘Give the people what they want,’ Myleene Klass commented, while fellow Loose Women star Katie Piper added: ‘Joining waiting list now.’
Sharing the image on her own Instagram Stories, Carol wrote: ‘Oh @denise_welch and her ‘hilarious jokes’ ruining our perfect posing!!’
Reposting the pic, she added: ‘What a great day yesterday having Denise and Lincoln for lunch followed by a little shimmy around Saint Paul de Vence and finishing with ice cream in Vence. Perfect. 👌See Densy’s post below for other activities #OnlyNans.’
Carol ripped into Loose Women and ITV just a few months ago.
After departing the show in May, having first been on the panel in 2000, she has called out her former employer, as well as former This Morning co-hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, claiming that things were ‘dysfunctional’ behind the scenes.
She also wanted ITV’s CEO to resign after Schofield acknowledged to having a ‘unwise but not criminal’ romance with a younger staffer.
She later issued a blistering rant during an appearance on GB News, saying: ‘Well put it this way, reading all the comments from the article at the weekend there are a lot of people who think the programme has gone very, very woke.’
She joked that even she doesn’t watch anymore and added: ‘You just don’t have to keep forcing this stuff down peoples’ throats. It’s not just ITV, the BBC is probably worse actually.’
At the time of announcing her departure, Carol stated that it was a decision she was ‘forced to make’ and left her ‘quite upset’.
She wrote in her column for Best magazine: ‘The problem was, ITV were insisting, for the first time since I went back in 2018, that if I wanted to carry on doing the show, I would have to sign a contract that was totally unjust and unworkable for me, so I had to say ‘no thanks.’”
‘No one in their right mind would have signed that contract,’ she continued. ‘And I can’t see a way back from it.’
Loose Women airs weekdays from 12.30pm on ITV1.
