Speaking about the tragic loss at the start of today's show, Charlene said: "Any of you who watch the show regularly will know the love Brenda had for her children was massive. 

"Her heart was full of so much love for them.

"So you'll know just how shocked Brenda is and just how it's hit all of us who knew him and all of us who love Brenda. We want to do Brenda proud."

Charlene - who was also joined by panellists Frankie Bridge, Linda Robson and Carol McGiffin - added: "I know Brenda is watching today and she has told us she wants us to give her a smile and a laugh like only her Loose Women ladies can.
