Denise Welch sparked worries after viewers spotted the Loose Women panellist unable to stop coughing and looking increasingly unwell on Wednesday’s show (April 13).
Denise has been absent from the panel, filming and catching up with friends and family in LA but returned this week. Appearing alongside host Jane Moore and co-stars Kelle Bryan and Katie Piper, the show tackled some serious and difficult topics with Ruth Dodsworth discussing her fears about her abusive ex husband being released from prison.

Other discussions included whether The Queen should be taking more time to recover from her fight with Covid and the revelation of Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak’s fines. Speaking about the PM and whether he should resign, Denise said: “Do I think he should resign? No. I’ve said for many reasons over the past two years, I’ve sort of better the devil you know. I have no doubt and I’m not as informed as a lot of people on the situation in Ukraine, but I do believe he is doing the best job he can for that.”
Yet as she continued to speak, viewers noticed the star sounded hoarse and began to cough. Attempting to continue, Denise then coughed again, apologising to the panel, saying: “Sorry about this.”
Viewers rushed to social media to express their concerns, with one asking: “Denise feeling well?” with another adding: “Denise talking about covid whilst coughing her guts up.” A third tweeted: “Someone get Denise a Halls Soother.”
