The Loose Women panel praised co-star Judi Love today as she made a Black History Month plea on the ITV show today.

Presenter Kaye Adams was in the anchor's seat this afternoon (October 2) alongside panelists Judi and Stacey Solomon, and Nadia Sawalha joined in the conversations via video link from home.

The famous foursome kicked off the show by discussing Black History Month, which runs from October 1 until October 31.

Judi, 40, shared a passionate speech live on air, almost reducing her co-stars to tears.

The comedian said: "'I want this Black History Month to be a celebration.

"I'm not black just this month, I'm black all the time."

Kaye, Nadia and Stacey were not the only ones feeling emotional as viewers at home rushed to their keyboards to praise Judi.

Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "Happy Judi is speaking up about this. Everything she is saying is the absolute utmost truth.

"I thank her for educating so many people who don't know about this stuff because we need to speak up about it.

Another added: "I'm so glad I was off work to see Judi Love speak the realist conversation I've ever seen on @loosewomen.

"Calm, collected and spoken eloquently. Maybe more people will understand because Judi broke it down bit by bit."

A third posted: "Totally agree with you Judi, I've experienced it all my life. Peace and Love."

While a fourth penned: "I felt emotional too just listening, thank you Judi so much for speaking on truth and wisdom about Black History Month and how we need to celebrate this as a positive.

"Thank you for speaking up on subjects that need to be discussed and out in the open."

During her time on Loose Women, Judi has been open about her struggles with prejudice and racism, especially following the murder of black father George Floyd in America.

Her first experience with racism was when she was just seven and with her mum and someone shouted racist abuse at them.

Judi told her fellow Loose Women previously: "Growing up, there's knowing that you won't get certain positions because you're more qualified than the other people that have applied for the job

"Seeing the police, I have my licence, I have my insurance, everything, but seeing the police and driving with the police behind you, and just for that minute feeling nervous even though you know that you're fully legit is something that a lot of black people go through."

As well as discussing Black History Month, The Loose ladies chatted to EastEnders icons Patsy Palmer and Sid Owen, aka Bianca Jackson and Ricky Butcher.

The soap stars reunited on the show and spoke to the panel about what they've been up to since they left Albert Square.
