Loose Women star Ruth Langsford had to take on a heroine role as she swooped in to save the show went Gloria Hunniford suffered major mic failure.

The 61-year-old had to bring the show to a complete standstill after Gloria's mic started to produce interface.

Ruth Langsford quickly stepped in adding: "Gloria I've just been told your mic isn't working properly so I'm just going to go to Coleen while we get that fixed.

Coleen Nolan looked surprised that she was now coming into the frame but swooped in like a true showbiz professional to cover up the blunder.

After the camera was drawn away from Gloria, producers whizzed onto the set to temporarily fix the problem, giving her a handheld microphone.

Gloria was able to continue her segment which was discussing loss of loved ones.

The heartfelt discussion began after they'd shown a picture of the Queen sat alone with her head tilted down at her husband Philip's funeral.

Today's panel which included Coleen, Ruth, Janet Street-Porter and Gloria saw the TV stars all open up about family members who had died.

It was at this moment when emotions were running high, that Gloria suffered a technical glitch.

Meanwhile, Gloria wasn't the only one to suffer a mishap on the Tuesday's show, with Ruth also making an on-screen faux pas.

Ruth was announcing that a baby had been called Gloria after the ITV outspoken panellist but accidentally read out the wrong information that was on the auto-queue.

Earlier in the programme, Ruth had promised to disclose later on in the show a member of the team who had taken up swimming in lockdown.

Viewers had no idea that Gloria had taken to the pool during the pandemic until Ruth accidentally read the wrong segment unveiling the truth earlier.

Loose Women airs weekdays at 12:30pm on ITV.
