Loose Women star Penny Lancaster told Brenda Edwards to “calm down” in a discussion today.
On Tuesday’s show, the panel discussed the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and whether the June 21 Freedom Day deadline should be postponed.
Brenda said the government should have waited until June 21 for people to go on vacation.
What happened between Penny and Brenda at Loose Women?
Brenda said, “We opened and they opened vacation right away.

“If anything, you should have waited until June 21st and then saw the data open up on other things in our country before you start flying people here, there and everywhere.”
When Brenda continued, Penny interrupted, “Brenda, Brenda.”
Brenda added, “You can’t have any control over whether people are quarantined when they come back, so
“What’s there? An Indian variant, an Australian variant, this variant.”
Penny said, “Brenda, Brenda, Brenda, calm down. Calm down, darling. “
Brenda then gasped as she grimaced.
She replied, “I am very calm.”
Meanwhile, viewers on Twitter were not impressed by Penny’s comment.
Many called it “patronizing,” as one person put it, “Penny with her condescending ‘calm down’.”
Brenda, Brenda, Brenda, calm down. Calm down darling
Another wrote: “@brenda_edwards How you kept that calm after Penny’s ‘Calm down, darling’ I don’t know.
“So condescending, you got your point across and she was still talking about you, I didn’t like that at all.”
A third added, “How embarrassing … Penny ‘calm down’. Brenda ‘I’m calm’ .. patronizing interruption … let the woman talk. “
