Denise Welch says Loose Women pal Brenda Edwards is fed up after hospital dash

Loose Women star Brenda Edwards was touring the UK while starring in Chicago until she slipped on a wet pavement, resulting in her fracturing her leg.

And after having to pull out of the show as she was sent to hospital following her nasty accident, her co-star and friend Denise Welch told OK! how she is currently feeling.

"Brenda is great. I had lunch with her the other day. She's really fed up about this bloody foot. She's really been through the mill in all sort of ways."

Denise, 64, went on to open up about her friend – who lost her son Jamal Edwards this year – on the red carpet at this year's TRIC awards: "But she's an incredibly strong woman.

"The thing with Brenda is, that she deals with things in her life by working through them.

"So, Loose Women has welcomed her back, in her own time."

Denise added: "She's a strong woman, and all she wanted was to get back to it. She's a real 'show must go on' woman."

Following Brenda's fall, she told her fans she had to pull out of the show for "insurance reasons".

The star, 53, said she was "gutted" as she posted a photo of her injured calf and foot, which was in a white cast.

She wrote on Twitter: "I’m absolutely gutted that I will not be able to do my 2 shows today @chicagoonstage @wgbpl after slipping on a dodgy wet pavement here in Blackpool and fracturing my fibula.

"Trust me when I say I was ready to go on in a wheelchair to do my shows today, as there is nothing wrong with my voice but obviously for insurance reasons I can’t."

She explained further: "I’m hoping when I get back home later I can get it sorted to re-join the wonderful talented cast at some point next week in Sheffield. Love you guys."

Many waded in to comment on Brenda's post as they rushed to send their best wishes to the presenter.

Ruth Langsford commented: "Noooo! Oh Brenda, you poor thing….sending you lots of love darling x x."

Former Strictly judge Arlene Phillips said: "I’m in shock. Wow. Hope all well soon."

Denise initially said: "Omg are you kidding!! So sorry Brenda. Love you xx."
