Loose Women viewers were divided today (Tuesday, September 21) when Coleen Nolan sparked a debate about the Covid vaccine.
The debate follows reports that three professional Strictly Come Dancing dancers have refused to take the jab.
What happened today at Loose Women?
Coleen joined Christine Lampard, Sunetra Sarker and Janet Street-Porter.
And the conversation quickly turned to reports that three strictly pro dancers refused to get a Covid jab.
Christine asked the panel if they thought celebs should be able to ask their partners if they got the trick.

Janet first replied, “As someone who has produced countless television shows, I cannot understand the mentality of producers who do not insist that every single professional dancer be vaccinated.
“Because it affects your decisions and makes the best show possible.”
She also said, “If I were asked to go on the show, I would expect all the people I work with in this setting to be vaccinated.”
Loose Women today: I disagree
However, Coleen then shared her view: “I disagree. I don’t think you have the right to insist that someone has a vaccination they don’t want.
“And remember, last year … they were still doing the show.
“They are literally tested almost every day.
She clearly contradicted Janet, adding, “I think they’ll make her as safe as possible.”

If your vaccine is working so well, then why should you worry about dancing with someone who presented a negative COVID test and no vaccine? Crazy times. Janet is wrong! # Permissive women

However, Coleen also got support.
Then another viewer said: “Surely it doesn’t matter if you didn’t have the Covid-Jab?
“You can still catch the virus and pass it on! Just keep testing daily, not really difficult. “
