‘Why don’t we just cancel fun!’ Denise Welch erupts over Ant and Dec drag backlash

And many viewers at home agreed, with Irene Edgar saying on Twitter: “Women would surely only be offended if Ant and Dec in drag looked better than them!! They did look amazing! #LooseWomen #AntandDec.”

User @CuddyAnnie echoed: “#LooseWomen When did Drag become offensive? I remember when I was a bit younger going to my first theatre show by myself, and didn’t know where to go & thanks to a few in Drag I got pointed in the right way to go. Also does that mean people who got offended don’t like Panto?”

@indigosylvee weighed in: “As a woman who watches rupaul’s drag race… no a man in drag is NOT offensive to me. #loosewomen.”

“People find offence in everything nowadays ..just cancel fun, comedians may aswell find another job! #loosewomen,” @sha4unh_ added while @sazzle0312:  argued: “Who cares if a bloke or a woman wants to do drag it’s up to them. I’d like to see who was offended by Ant and Dec doing this #Loosewomen.” (sic)

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