The 63-year-old Loose Women star took to Instagram to beat up the presenter.

Naomi reported mental health issues after retiring from the French Open tennis tournament.
That shock came after the world’s number one refused to speak to the media in press conferences.
Then Piers called her statement an “orgy of narcissistic ramblings” and compared her attitude with that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
His righteous views were again heavily criticized.
What did Denise say?
Part of the criticism came from Denise, who said on Instagram, “Pathetic attempt to distract from the HUGE amount of deserved criticism he received from Naomi Osaka after his utterly shameful bullying.
“Most of it doesn’t come from trolls, but from intelligent people who are sick of his persistent attitude towards women talking about serious mental health problems.”
In another post, Denise wrote: “Piers also proves why so many people suffer in silence for fear of being labeled an ‘arrogant narcissist spoiled brat’.
“This man is a [bleep] Shame.”
What did Naomi say in her testimony?
On Sunday (May 30), Ms. Osaka withdrew from the French Open after refusing to speak to the media after games caused a storm at press conferences.
She said in a statement, “This is not a situation I ever imagined or intended when I posted a few days ago.
“I think the best thing for the tournament, the other players and my well-being now is that I step back so that everyone can focus on tennis again in Paris.

“The truth is, I’ve had long periods of depression since the 2018 US Open and I’ve had a really hard time dealing with it.
“I wrote to the tournament privately, apologized and said that I would like to speak to you after the tournament because the slams are intense.
“I’m going to take some time off the field now, but when the time is right I really want to work with the tour to discuss how we can make things better for the players, the press and the fans.”
