Jane McDonald joined Ruth Langsford, Coleen Nolan, Linda Robson and Carol McGiffin on Tuesday’s Loose Women as she reflected on how she’s coping without her late fiancé Ed Rothe one year on from his death. During the interview, Jane joined in with the topics of discussion for the day and took a swipe at cancel culture.

The Loose Women panellists were discussing anti-ageing products during the episode. 

On whether products should have the term “anti-ageing” to describe them, Jane hit out at the idea you “can and can’t” say certain things.

She said: “I’m going to have to go back to school to know what I can say, what I can’t say, what is right, what is wrong.

“I just don’t know anymore, can somebody tell me?

“Can somebody write it all out because I don’t know anymore.”

Coleen replied: “No we can’t because that would be assuming you’re too silly to think of it yourself. 

“You can’t do anything anymore, you can’t even give someone advice.”

Meanwhile, Jane opened up on the network of support she has around her since Ed’s passing. 

Jane said: “I’m doing so much better and you realise just how important your family and friends are. 

“I have more good days now than bad days and I relish those now. 

“I was very lucky – I’ve always had a very busy life without a partner, so I’ve been able to just carry on and my fans were just incredible. They got me through so much over the tour, so I’m very grateful.”

Carol remarked: “It must’ve been quite hard the first gig you did after [Ed’s death]?”

Jane replied: “I was a mess, but they just got me through it. They really did. 

“You can find love in many different ways – it can be a pet, it can be your fans, it can be your family, or your friends… when you lose a lot of love – I lost my mum and Ed – and you just think, ‘I’m never going to fill that hole again’ but you do. 

“It comes from other places, and that’s why you’ve got to let the light in and that’s what I’m doing.

“I’ve just stepped back from touring for a couple of years because it’s hard work.”

“Sometimes you’ve got to step back and make space for great things to happen,” she continued. 

“That’s my motto in life. You’ve got to make things happen sometimes, and my life for the past seven years has been touring, recording, television, touring, recording, and that’s just been constant.” 

Jane revealed her best friend and backing singer Sue, who now lives with her, helped her to see that taking a step back was what she needed. 

“We got off the tour bus at half past five one morning and the sun was up and we hadn’t slept all night, the traffic had been really bad, and she just looked at me and said, ‘What are we doing? At our age?’ I said, ‘Speak for yourself!’ But I don’t think I’ll ever give it up. I’m just stepping back for a while,” she added.

Loose Women airs on ITV on weekdays at 12.30pm.
